Result: Paris Saint-Germain 4-0 Dijon
Date: 29 February 2020
Venue: Parc di Princes
Paris Saint-Germain ran riot without Neymar on Saturday evening after thumping Dijon 4-0 to maintain their dominance in Ligue 1.
The Ligue 1 leaders were without the suspended Neymar and Marco Verratti as Idrissa Gueye and Pablo Sarabia were drafted into to the line-up.
PSG got off to the perfect start as Sarabia repaid Thomas Tuchel's faith after opening the scoring after just three minutes with a close-range finish.
Tuchel was then forced to make a first-half change as the influential Angel di Maria sustained a hamstring injury and was replaced by Julian Draxler on 19 minutes.
Draxler nearly made an immediate impact but he was denied by Rúnar Alex Rúnarsson in the 27th minute before the Dijon shot-stopper produced another save to deny the PSG attacker
The visitors, meanwhile, never showed any real attacking intent in the opening stanza while the likes of Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe squandered some big chances at the other end.
It was more dominance from the home side in the second half although they had to wait until the 60th minute for an opening as Cavani failed to hit the target from six-yards out.
The second goal eventually arrived with 16 minutes left in the contest as Draxler turned provider to pick out Mbappe, who rounded Runarsson to slot into an empty net.
Two minutes later, Mauro Icardi got his name on the score-sheet five minutes after his arrival with a neat finish from close range after being picked out by Mbappe.
Mbappe rounded off the scoring in second-half stoppage time to complete his brace with another finish into an empty after racing onto a loose ball.
