Despite being the best team in Scotland last season and winning the league by 30 points, Celtic are yet to make a name for themselves in Europe.

Brendan Rodgers has still not tasted defeat in Scotland but to prove himself as a top class manager, he needs to lead his Celtic team into the latter stages of the Champions League.

Last season they faced one of the toughest attacks in Europe which featured Neymar, Messi and Suarez and they lost by 7-0.

This season the face Neymar again in a similarly dangerous attacking lineup featuring Cavani, and Mbappe.

Rodgers will hope his players can at least get a point from this game.

PSG are the king of goals this season and they head into this game on the back of a 5-1 win against Metz.

With the trio of Kylian Mbappe, Neymar and Edison Cavanni all netting, Unai Emery will hope that they perform again in Scotland.

They have won all 6 of their competitive games this season scoring 21 goals in the process.

Even though Celtic may get on the score sheet in this game, PSG look likely to outscore them at will.
