Laurent Blanc's side can make it 27 games without defeat against the 16th-placed side on Wednesday as they look to move four points clear of Lille at the top of Ligue 1

Paris Saint-Germain have the chance to equal their club-record unbeaten run in Ligue 1 when they travel to Evian on Wednesday.

The French champions have not lost in their last 26 league games since a 1-0 reverse away to Reims on March 2, with their previous best of 27 being set in 1994 on their way to their second Ligue 1 title.

Having won the title under Carlo Ancelotti last term, PSG have pushed on under Laurent Blanc and are top of Ligue 1, although Lille closed to within a point on Tuesday with a last-gasp 1-0 win over Olympique de Marseille and a staggering 11th consecutive clean sheet.

The consistency of Lille and the attacking prowess of Monaco - who beat Nice 3-0 on Tuesday despite the absence of Radamel Falcao - means les Parisiens face a fight to defend their title, but their crushing 4-0 win over Olympique Lyonnais on Sunday showed they remain the side to beat this season.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored twice from the penalty spot, adding to efforts from Edinson Cavani and Thiago Silva.

In their way of the milestone sit an Evian team without a win in three games and sitting 16th in the table.

Pascal Dupraz's side went down to a 2-0 defeat at Bastia on Sunday, leaving their coach lamenting some sub-standard defending.

The suspended Fabrice Ehret is unavailable for Dupraz, while the game may come too soon for striker Kevin Berigaud (thigh).

PSG may also have to reshuffle for the clash with Thiago Motta having been withdrawn at half-time in the Lyon win, putting his involvement in doubt.
