This Friday in Matchday 12 in the French Ligue 1, Paris Saint-Germain traveled to face Dijon, and keep the good lead on top of the table. However, the Parisians played poorly and ended up defeated 2-1 at Dijon. Kylian Mbappe scored for the visitors, as Chouiar and Cadiz scored for Dijon.
Playing good football over the past weeks, Ligue 1 leaders PSG went to face relegation-zone-side Dijon counting on the good momentum, mainly from Mbappe and Mauro Icardi to grab yet another win in the French League.
As soon as 19 minutes and the deadlock was already broken. Angel Di Maria picked Mbappe out in a brilliant pass as the French striker smartly touched over Dijon’s keeper to make it 0-1 PSG.
However, Dijon reacted still in the first half and went on seeking the equalizer yet in the first half. On the added time Chouiar took advantage of Keylor Navas’s mistake and tapped in to leave everything equal before the break. 1-1.
Even playing at home, Dijon knew that a draw with the League leaders was a good result overall. However, they showed braveness and on 47 mins surprised PSG with an unlikely comeback. Following a beautiful solo-play by Cadiz, he got into the box and put it through the legs of Navas, and into the back of the net. What a goal. 2-1 Dijon.
Being 2-1 down, Thomas Tuchel had no choice other than advancing the team in order to grab an equalizer at least. Dijon relied on their goalkeeper to save the team, as he really did not disappoint. Edinson Cavani had the best chance for PSG, but his shot struck the post. Di Maria and Icardi also had opportunities, but their poor finishing made the scoring to remain unaltered until the end of the match.
