Paris to produce champions' performance

PSG have a point to prove after their shock League Cup defeat on Wednesday night. Having led 1-0 at home to Guingamp they relaxed and ended up losing 2-1 to an injury-time penalty.
The defeat was a bitter blow to the club from the capital, who have won the trophy in each of the past five seasons. Manager Thomas Tuchel admitted after the game the players had been too confident and lacked a killer instinct in front of goal.
Expect PSG to bounce back in style this weekend, however, as their professional pride will have been hurt. They have almost a full squad to pick from and the likes of Kylian Mbappeand Neymar are likely to be more effective in the final third on Saturday.
Amiens will struggle to put up meaningful resistance. Their W3-D1-L5 home record shows they're a limited force at Stade de la Licorne and includes defeats against other top sides Montpellier (1-2), Lille (2-3) and Marseille (1-3). The ongoing injury absence of last season's 13-goal top scorer Moussa Konate makes Amiens toothless in front of goal.
PSG have won 12 of their opening 17 Ligue 1 fixtures of the season by two or more goals, suggesting there's value in our handicap selection. For a full guide to Asian Handicap betting, click here.

New manager set to inspire hosts

Dijon vs Montpellier (18th v 4th)

The appointment of Antoine Kombouare as Dijon boss should be the crucial factor in this fixture on Sunday afternoon. He was appointed this week following the sacking of Olivier Dall'Oglio for poor results.
Kombouare is one of the most experienced managers on the Ligue 1 circuit. He's managed Strasbourg, Valenciennes, PSG, Lens and Guingamp during more than a decade in the job. He's also known as a disciplinarian and should ensure tremendous commitment levels from his players.
That's exactly what Dijon need after under-performing this season. They won their first three matches of the season before going on a dreadful 12-game winless streak that ran from September until December.
The players will be pumped-up this weekend and a large crowd's expected at Stade Gaston Gerard. Given the positive atmosphere surrounding the club since Kombouare took over the 3.50 on Dijon arguably looks a little too big.
Montpellier lost 2-0 at Nantes in a rearranged game on Tuesday night. On the back of that defeat manager Michel Der Zakarian - a close friend of Kombouare's - is likely to take an even more pragmatic approach than usual. The absence through suspension of striker Gaetan Laborde robs Montpellier of movement and quality in the final third.
Ex-Bordeaux front man Laborde is Montpellier's seven-goal joint-highest scorer and has struck up an excellent understanding with partner Andy Delort and playmaker Florent Mollet.
