PSG wins Dijon by 4x0 and increases leadership in Ligue 1
Paris Saint-Germain defeated Dijon by 4-0 outside their home, on this Tuesday (12), for the 28th Ligue 1 round. With the result, PSG now has 74 points and increased their advantage over Lille, in second place, by 17.
Marquinhos, Mbappé, Di María and Choupo-Moting scored the goals of the match. Before the duel, coach Thomas Tuchel had already talked about the importance of a postive result to reestabilish the team’s trust after the elimination before Manchester, on the Champions League’s round of 16.
If on one hand PSG will be able to sleep safe and sound while thinking about the French Championship, Dijon continues with only one point missing to fall on the relegation zone.
Paris’ next game will be next Sunday (17), at 13h (Brazilian time – 17h local time), at the Parc des Princes, against the Olympique de Marseille.
