Not to be outdone, Kylian Mbappe also got involved in the goalscoring inside the first-half, as Celtic found themselves 4-1 down at the interval.

PSG head coach Unai Emery has a couple of issues ahead of this one in terms of team selection.

"We kept playing our football and once we had equalised we just went on with it". It would be difficult to predict anything other than a convincing win for the home side but Celtic are capable of producing going forward.

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers chose to praise the quality of PSG's players after the game rather than admonish his own, but did concede that his side had made it a little too easy for the hosts on a number of occasions. Defending for long stretches, they'll need the player most capable of holding up play, and that's Dembele. Although it looked like he had no clear view of Dembele's effort, he and Alves should have done better.

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

"He was extraordinary. There were a few matches where he stopped playing for different reasons but when he is in form physically and his mentality is right, he can play".

And certainly, the quality the home side showed late in the game was outrageous. He also assisted Mbappe's first-half goal.

The match was so heavily weighted in the favour of the home side, centre-back Thiago Silva was flagged offside as he tried to latch into an outrageous lobbed pass from Neymar over the top of the visiting defence.

DF Layvin Kurzawa, 6 - Quiet on the night but that was not necessarily his fault. When he is not on the pitch, he can enjoy his time with his friends.

"The first games were really good for us and our team has shown that we are really committed to win in this competition, we want to go far".

Moussa Dembele opened the scoring for the visitors in the 56th second of the game as his fierce shot from the edge of the box flew past Alphonse Areola to send the visitors into a frenzy.

Bayern won 2-1 at Anderlecht on Wednesday, while PSG remain on course to finish with maximum points in the section having already set a new group-stage goals record with 24. "But they just dismantled them, it was unbelievable".

MF Javier Pastore, 6 - Replaced Draxler with 23 minutes to go and contributed towards PSG's late flurry of goals.

In attack, Griffiths may feel he's played himself into contention with the winner against County, but Celtic won't see much of the ball in Paris.
