Counting on Neymar’s likely return, PSG faces Dijon on Wednesday, January 17. At the Parc des Princes in Paris, the match complements the twenty-first round of the French Championship. The start is scheduled for 18h (Brasília time).
PSG’s recent performance
On Sunday, January 14, the Brazilian striker was given a break. Without Neymar, PSG struggled but passed through Nantes in the home of the opponents, scoring 1 to 0 and counting on the aid of the referee, who expelled absurdly a player of the main team.
Paris Saint-Germain had 53 points (17 wins, two draws and a loss) and opened 11 points in the comparison with Monaco and Lyon, who closed the twentieth round by taking second place.
After seven wins in a row, coach Unai Emery is expected to take advantage of Wednesday’s game to give other athletes a break, preventing excessive wear and tear from increasing the risk of injury. Also because the team is in the competition of four competitions and will resume its participation in the most important of them, the Champions League in February, against the two-time champion Real Madrid.
Officially, Neymar (15 games in the French Championship 2017/2018, 11 goals), was left out due to the rib injury. French media reports, however, say it is not a serious concussion and most likely he will be released to act against Dijon.
Italian midfielder Thiago Mota (ten games, one goal) is also doubtful for the match. Your situation is a little more serious. A calf injury took him out of his last two games. This is a problem that often occurs. The previous season, he had to stay away from the pitch twice because of a similar problem. Thus, it is likely that the medical department will use more caution in your case and leave you in treatment for a longer period.
The current form of Dijon
Dijon completed on Saturday, January 13, a series of three unbeaten matches (two draws and one loss). At home, he went 1 to 1 with Metz. He scored a goal early in the minute and gave up the equalizer in the 44th minute of the second half.
There was still time for defender Papy Djilobodji (16 games in the 2017/2018 French Championship without a goal) to be sent off. Received the red card in the extras and will have to comply automatic suspension on Wednesday.
With 25 points (seven wins, four draws and nine losses), Dijon is in ninth place. A relatively comfortable situation for those who fight only to avoid relegation. The difference in comparison with the Angers, eighteenth place and first in the region of the sticking, was of six points at the end of the day of number 20.
To face PSG coach Olivier Dall’Oglio has yet to deal with two probable medical casualties. Defender Wesley Lautoa (one match in the 2017/2018 French Championship without a goal) and midfielder Xeka (12 matches, two goals) are in the infirmary.
