Dijon find themselves rooted to the bottom of the Ligue 1 standings and will need a miracle to escape relegation this season. The home side suffered a 2-1 defeat to Lens last week and will need to be at its best this weekend.
Paris Saint-Germain are currently engaged in a battle with Lyon and Lille for the Ligue 1 title. The reigning champions slumped to a shocking 2-0 defeat against Monaco in their previous game and are in desperate need of a victory this weekend.
