PSG faces Dijon away from home by Ligue 1

With a comfortable situation in the French Championship, the leader Paris Saint-Germain faces Dijon away from home on Tuesday (11), at 15h (Brasília time / 18h French time). The game will be played at the Gaston-Gérard stadium. The owners of the house are one point from the relegation zone.

Neymar Jr follows off the team. He was in Doha, Qatar, where he continued treatment for the fifth-metatarsal injury on his right foot. Doctors of the French club followed the works.

At a news conference held before Tuesday's match, coach Thomas Tuchel said some players will be spared. "Edinson Cavani trained individually yesterday and tomorrow's game is too risky; he won't play. Stanley Nsoki is back training with us, but the Dijon game comes too soon. Julian Draxler is injured and side-lined for a few weeks. Leandro Paredes is not qualified and Dani Alves is suspended", he argued.

Although PSG are the isolated leader of the French Championship with 71 points, 14 more than vice-ranked Lille, Tuchel stressed that the time is to play as champion. "The first few days after the loss, the players don't want to play, but they don't have any choice - we have to finish the season. You have to know how to accept defeat and keep going; that's sport. We have the chance to bounceback, like champions, and that's our challange, for me and the coaching staff, the push the players each and every day. To play tomorrow is the best medicine", he emphasized.
