After the failed exit against Manchester United in the Champions League, will Neymar put Paris in the right direction and again take advantage of Dijon’s coming to the Parc des Princes to juggle the numbers? In 2018, on the occasion of the Parisian success (8-0) won on the 21st day of Ligue 1, the Brazilian had indeed signed his first quadruplet with Paris against the Burgundy team. It was the third of his club career. The previous two had been registered in Catalonia, during the victory (5-2) of FC Barcelona against Rayo Vallecano on October 17, 2015, and in Brazil when FC Santos defeated (4-1) Atletico Paranaense on October 29, 2011.
If he managed to score at least one double this Saturday evening at the Parc des Princes in front of Dijon, Neymar (49 goals in L1) would join Raï in 10th place among the top scorers in the history of PSG in the league.
0. The figures hardly plead in favor of Dijon before this shock of extremes of the 8th day of Ligue 1. If the gap in the standings seems abysmal between Paris, 2nd in Ligue 1, and the Burgundy formation, current red lantern still weaned from success , it is nothing compared to the liabilities between the two teams. All competitions combined, Dijon has played six games at the Parc des Princes. Not only did he concede six losses, but he never managed to score a goal.
1. The record seemed hard to beat. But the river victory (8-0) won against Dijon on January 17, 2018 will have remained only a short year in the tablets of PSG as the biggest success in history at home. A year later, almost to the day, the players of the capital beat their record, once again on the occasion of the 21st day of Ligue 1. On January 19, 2019, it was Guingamp who suffered the wrath of the Parisian attack and entered at its expense in the history of PSG, winner 9-0.
8. Parisian top scorer (4 goals) in L1, Kylian Mbappé is also the one who is most successful against Dijon. The 2018 world champion has already found the net 8 times against the Côte-d’Or club: seven times in Ligue 1, once in the Coupe de France.
11. PSG digests its setbacks in the Champions League rather well. In any case, he seems to know how to bounce back since the capital club has got into the habit of raising its head the following match each of its poor performances on the European scene. Provided that he played them in the same season (the final lost to Bayern Munich which was the last match of the 2019-2020 financial year is not taken into account), PSG remains on a series of 11 consecutive successes in matches following a loss in the Champions League. The last time PSG conceded a setback in the wake of a Champions League defeat dates back to the 2014-2015 season. The Parisians had bowed to Guingamp (1-0), just after losing to Barcelona (3-1) in a group match.
