Paris Saint-Germain head to East this weekend as they take on Dijon FCO at Stade Gaston Gérard in a Ligue 1 fixture. The defending champions have been phenomenal in the last few weeks, especially in the domestic competition, as they are scoring goals for fun, winning games comfortably.
Even Marseille failed to turn up last weekend in the season's first Le Classique, hardly turning up for the match as PSG made the short work of their eternal rivals in a 4-0 thrashing at Parc des Princes. With the win, Thomas Tuchel's men stretched their lead at the top to 8 points after Nantes lost 0-1 at home to Monaco.
Dijon meanwhile prop up the table after winning just twice in the first 11 games. The gap between them and safety could increase further after this round if Toulouse beat Lyon and they fail to beat PSG at home.
The Ligue 1 match will be played between Dijon FCO and Paris Saint-Germain at Stade Gaston Gérard, in Dijon, France. The ground has a capacity of 15,995.
The game will start at 01:15 AM (IST), on Saturday, November 02.
