Dijon FCO has never won a title before. All the more hopeful the fans of the Moutardes went into January 30, 2020 – the day on which the draw for the Coupe de France quarter-finals took place.
Dijon vs PSG Betting Predictions and Odds – Coupe de France 2020
Instead of pulling one of the two fourth division teams with Belfort or Épinal, it was really fat for “Les Rouges”. The 17th of Ligue 1 drew the top favorite with Paris Saint-Germain.
Accordingly, according to bookmaker odds, Dijon goes against PSG as a gross outsider in this quarter-finals and is only given minimal chances of entering the semi-finals.
Nevertheless, in the forecast against Dijon against PSG, it should not be forgotten that cup surprises are definitely favored by the mode without a second leg. In addition, the Moutardes only beat Parisiens 2-1 in Ligue 1 on November 1, 2019 at Stade Gaston Gérard at home.
So there is a good chance of a surprise, although it would be somewhat presumptuous to place a tip on the progress of Stéphane Jobard’s team against DiGon against PSG. Since Thomas Tuchel is forced to rotate, it makes sense to play an outsider bet with an Asian handicap of +1.5, whereby we cover every narrow favorite win as well as a possible cup sensation.
Dijon – Statistics & current form
Dijon FCO was founded in 1936. However, the Moutardes only acquired professional status 68 years later in 2004. A year that went down in many ways in the annals of club history.
Not only did “Les Rouges” move up to Ligue 2 for the first time this year, they also caused a sensation in the Coupe de France. For the first and only time, Dijon FCO reached the semi-finals in France’s most important national cup competition.
Excluding the two promotions in Ligue 1 in 2011 and 2016, the 2004 Coupe de France semi-final is still the most significant success the Moutardes have ever achieved. The grief was all the greater that 16 years later they had drawn Paris Saint-Germain of all things with comparatively feasible lots like Belfort or Épinal in the lottery pots of the quarter-finals.
Nevertheless, a tip on the second semi-final entry of “Les Rouges” in the club’s history should not be written off prematurely at Dijon against PSG. After all, Stéphane Jobard’s squad did not flip the high-flyer in Ligue 1 until November 1, 2019 and was able to prevail against the Parisiens 2-1 in the Stade Gaston Gérard.
Mounir Choular and Jhonder Cádiz then turned a 0: 1 deficit by Kylian Mbappé and should be motivated again in the cup. Although the Moutardes, who only held 18th position in the final table last summer by relegation in Ligue 1, are currently only 17th in the current table. At least the latest home results are definitely encouraging for the upcoming David against Goliath duel.
Only two of the twelve home games in Ligue 1 lost “Les Rouges” in front of their own fans, where 20 of the 25 points were scored, which are accounted for by the East French after a total of 24 game days. In addition, the Jobard troupe has also shown its chocolate side at home in recent months.
Not a single of the last eleven competitive games in their own stadium was lost (six wins, five draws) and the Moutardes were even able to win three of the last four games at Stade Gaston Gérard – including a 5-0 victory over Nîmes Olympique and a 1: 0 about Champions League participant Lille, in which Hamza Mendyl had already flown with red in the 21st minute.
Last, but not least, the chances of a possible cup surprise are also generally good, because Stéphane Jobard is in the comfortable situation of having his entire squad together. Not a single player from “Les Rouges” is missing or injured in this Coupe de France quarter-finals.
Probable lineup of Dijon:
↳ Gomis – Mendyl – Lautoa – Manga – Alphonse – Ndong – Amalfitano Couiar – Benzia – Mavididi – Travares
Last games from Dijon:
⚽️ 02/08/2020 – FCO Dijon vs. FC Nantes 3: 3 (Ligue 1)
⚽️ 02/05/2020 – Olympique Nimes vs. FCO Dijon 2- (Ligue 1)
⚽️ 02/01/2020 – FCO Dijon vs. Stade Brest 3-0 (Ligue 1)
⚽️ 01/28/2020 – Limonest vs. FCO Dijon 1: 2 (Coupe de France)
⚽️ 01/25/2020 – Montpellier vs. FCO Dijon 2-1 (Ligue 1)
PSG – Statistics & current form
The latter is a condition that Thomas Tuchel would longingly wish for in his second year as coach of Paris Saint-Germain. After being hit by an unbelievable injury bad luck in the second half of the season in the 2018/19 season, the epidemic is once again rampant on the Seine.
On the defensive alone, four top performers are currently injured with Marquinhos, Abdou Diallo, Thiago Silva and Juan Bernat, while superstar Neymar is also unlikely to be a candidate for the match in the Coupe de France after his rib bruise.
After all, “Les Rouge et Bleu” have a fundamentally different goal. While the next national championship with a twelve-point lead over Olympique Marseille and 14 outstanding games is once again likely to be brought to an early stage, the Parisiens are clearly focused on the Champions League.
After all, Olympique Marseille is still the only French club to ever win the handle pot. And this is exactly what the capitals have been trying to change for almost a decade now, with sometimes dizzying investments. So far known with moderate success.
Just a year ago, despite 2-0 away win in the first leg at Manchester United, the Parisians said goodbye to the second round in an almost absurd way with a 1-3 home loss in the second leg in front of their own fans. In the 2016/17 season, even after a 4-0 first-leg win over FC Barcelona, this round was still the end of the game because the final leg at Camp Nou was 1: 6.
Having already won the group and then failing in the round of 16 is not an option, which is why the first leg at Borussia Dortmund, which is coming up next Tuesday, is already casting its shadow.
So at Dijon against PSG, the bookmakers’ odds may well be in the direction of “Les Rouge et Bleu”, but it would be a big surprise if Thomas Tuchel with this game at his former employer’s mind, undoubtedly a yardstick is not rotated to the maximum in the relatively insignificant Coupe de France and in Ligue 1 against outsiders Amiens SC.
It must be stated that even a poorer B-eleven of the Parisiens at national level in France would still play for the starting places for the international competitions and should be superior to a team like Dijon FCO in all respects. However, it should also be said that the Moutardes have nothing to lose here, which makes them all the more dangerous.
Probable lineup of PSG:
↳ Navas – Bakker – Mbe Soh – Kouassi – Dagba – Verratti – Gueye – Sarabia – Di María – Mbappé – Icardi
Last games from PSG:
⚽️ 02/09/2020 – PSG vs. Lyon 4-2 (Ligue 1)
⚽️ 02/04/2020 – FC Nantes vs. PSG 1: 2 (Ligue 1)
⚽️ 02/01/2020 – PSG vs. Montpellier 5-0 (Ligue 1)
⚽️ 01/29/2020 – Pau vs. PSG 0: 2 (Coupe de France)
⚽️ 01/26/2020 – OSC Lille vs. PSG 0-2 (Ligue 1)

Dijon vs PSG Betting Predictions and Odds by PicksSoccer.com
In the case of Dijon against PSG, the prediction must inevitably take into account the starting position of Thomas Tuchel’s team. It certainly had a bland taste a year ago that the high-flyer “only” won Ligue 1, but left the titles in the two cup competitions.
Of course, everyone involved would therefore like to bring the prestigious Coupe de France back to the Seine. However, the top priority remains the UEFA Champions League, which is just six days after the Moutardes’ visit to Borussia Dortmund.
With five injured top performers, four of whom are on the defensive, the Parisiens should not at all costs seek revenge for the league defeat against “Les Rouges”, but should be very interested in solving the ticket to the semi-finals with as little effort as possible.
