Dijon Respond To Rabiot Jibe: We Gave PSG Confidence Before Madrid Clash, This Is How They Thank Us!’
Dijon saw the funny side of Adrien Rabiot’s comments after the Paris Saint-Germain midfielder blamed his team’s loss to Real Madrid by highlighting their eight-goal thrashing of the French club.
Ligue 1 giants PSG took to the Santiago Bernabeu with great hope but left the Spanish with diappointment losing 3-1 in the opening leg of their last-16 tie against the Champions League holders on Wednesday.
Rabiot, put the Ligue one giant ahead in the 33rd minute before Cristiano Ronaldo’s double inspired a comeback, was particularly scathing of the collapse, telling beIN SPORTS: “It’s great to put eight goals past Dijon, but it is in these matches that you have to make it count.”
PSG superstar Neymar scored a double brace in the relentless demolition of Dijon in Ligue 1 last month.

And Dijon however, responded to Rabiot via Twitter post-match, writing: “We did everything to give PSG confidence before Real Madrid… And this is how they thank us!”
PSG welcome Madrid to Parc des Princes on March 6 as they look to reach the quarter-finals.
