Following postponement due to the "gilets jaunes" unrest across France, Paris Saint-Germain's Ligue 1 games against Montpellier and Dijon have new dates.
Paris Saint-Germain's Ligue 1 contests against Montpellier and Dijon have been rearranged for February and March, respectively, after they were postponed due to the "gilets jaunes" demonstrations.
France's civil unrest began in November as people protested against president Emmanuel Macron's eco-tax on fuel, but it has since developed into an anti-government movement.
Protests and demonstrations have caused havoc and rioting across the country, particularly in the capital Paris, with a host of sporting events being impacted due to the strain on the police and security services.
