Les Parisiens completely outclassed the Belgians 5-0 in the away encounter, and Al Hain-Cole expects them to help themselves to a few more goals back on home turf
Paris Saint-Germain have the chance to book their place in the Champions League knockout stages when they welcome struggling Anderlecht to the Parc des Princes on Tuesday.
Laurent Blanc’s men have collected nine points from nine in Group C so far and are overwhelming 2/15 (1.13) favourites with BetVictor to maintain that 100 per cent record this evening.
In contrast, Les Mauves et Blancs have lost all three of their opening games without scoring a single goal and are available at a hefty 25/1 (26.00) to pull off a surprise win in the French capital.
That price is by far the biggest available on any team to win in Tuesday's fixtures, indeed, only Austria Vienna are a bigger price to win against Atletico Madrid in any of the other fixtures in matchday four.
However, the visitors have drawn two of their last four away games in this competition, and you can get odds of 17/2 (9.50) on them taking home a famous point from this one against the in-form French side.
Les Parisiens ran out comprehensive 5-0 winners when these sides met in Brussels two weeks ago, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic running the hosts ragged with four goals of exceptional quality.
John van den Brom’s men must have been cautiously optimistic when injury ruled their tormentor in chief out of Saturday’s 4-0 Ligue 1 victory over Lorient, but their hopes were dashed when the mercurial Swede was passed fit for tonight’s squad, alongside the returning Thiago Silva.
With Blanc promising to put out his strongest possible team in order to wrap up their place in the knockout stages as soon as possible, it is difficult to see anything other than another heavy defeat for the Belgians, who have conceded 10 and scored none so far and look doomed to finish bottom of the group for the seventh consecutive Champions League campaign.
A bet on over 3.5 goals to be scored would have paid out in each of PSG’s last four games in all competitions and looks to be where the safe money lies at 11/10 (2.10) this evening considering the quality of their opponents, particularly as at least four goals have also been scored in eight of Anderlecht’s 14 league games this season.
