Paris Saint-Germain vs Celtic - 5 talking points

"He is playing in front of 60,000 every other week, playing in a team where they have dominance and have the ball and, of course, he left to become a winner, winning trophies and getting that feeling of winning". Edinson Cavani, the top scorer in Europe this season, made the most of Celtic's poor defending to make it 3-1 with a simple tap-in after Neymar headed down the ball in his path. It was Cavani's 150th goal for PSG.

Moments after Ntcham had drilled a powerful strike just wide for Celtic, PSG took the lead, as some clever interplay between Neymar and Verratti released the Brazilian inside the area and, in an almost carbon copy of his opener, he stroked into Gordon's far corner.

"We're up against it if we qualify as champions of Scotland because there's always going to be at least a couple of teams in the group who are vying to win competition", he said.

Neymar, Cavani and Mbappe had all scored in Celtic's 5-0 home defeat against PSG - their record European home loss.

The Scottish champions lost 7-0 in the Nou Camp last season, which Rodgers referred to in his postmatch news conference.

That's right, it's the exact same team as the 1-0 win over Ross County.

"So we have to be aggressive, dynamic and get the three points".

The match starts at 20:45 on 22 November 2017.

"We can keep the ball a bit better, and secondly you've got to defend better, but you also have to admire the sheer quality of Paris Saint-Germain", admitted their manager Brendan Rodgers. His goalscoring form last campaign from midfield was brilliant and he is also great at providing for his teammates.

And certainly, the quality the home side showed late in the game was outrageous.

DF Thiago Silva, 7 - PSG's captain was commanding alongside Marquinhos and, although the pair did not have too much do, they dealt with what was asked of them with minimal fuss. Waiting another four days may have negatively affected his side's rhythm, and against PSG they'll need any advantage they can get.

UNAI EMERY has backed PSG party boy Neymar to show off his dancing feet against Celtic.

I'm not sure if Celtic are good enough as a unit and individually defensively against such high calibre opponents and with an arguably more important home match against Anderlecht still to come, I think PSG will be comfortable winners here. He levelled in the ninth minute with a low finish into the far corner following an Adrien Rabiot pass, and he scored again midway through the first half after a one-two with Verratti.
