Having secured a club record win the last time these sides met, Al Hain-Cole expects the prolific Parisiens to rack up the goals once again

Paris Saint-Germain will expect their rampant form to continue when Troyes visit the Parc des Princes for Wednesday's Ligue 1 clash.

Having won 18 and lost none of their 20 fixtures in all competitions this season, Les Parisiens are overwhelming 1/25 (1.04) favourites with Betfair Sportsbook to secure yet another victory in this one.

Despite winning two of their last three league matches, Jean-Louis Garcia's team are a staggering 80/1 (81.00) long shots to pull off a first victory against this opposition in 16 years.

The last time the visitors earned even a point at this stadium was back in December 2000, although you can get odds of 18/1 (19.00) on them claiming a share of the spoils on this occasion.

So high are the standards set by his team this season that Unai Emery seemed not entirely satisfied with the 2-1 victory away to Monaco at the weekend, a result that sees them nine points clear after just 14 fixtures.

Despite the victory against the reigning champions, the Spaniard insisted his side should have run out far more comfortable winners where it not for some less than clinical finishing in front of goal.

Indeed, the two-goal return marked a significant drop for a team that is averaging over three goals a game in the league - and over four per match at home in all competitions.

Having recorded a club 9-0 victory in the previous encounter between these sides, the hosts should feel rightly confident of at least matching that average when their newly-promoted opponents come to town.

In fact, odds of 6/5 (2.20) seem more than generous on over 4.5 goals being scored in this one, a bet that would have paid out in four of PSG's last five fixtures and each of the last two meetings with Troyes.
