Celtic pitch invader attempts to kick Mbappe... but misses

This Celtic is a great team.

"You try to be compact around the ball, but then that gives space to players". "PSG are put together to win this competition, there's no doubt about that", Rodgers said.

"We may be a bit shaky at the back, we've got a great goalkeeper but we need a little bit of luck tonight - let's be honest".

"Every team I've played in and all the forwards I've played with have been different and I'm aware that I'm playing alongside two or three fantastic players", Cavani added. "What we've learned from our first game of the Champions League previous year is that we're not going to be as passive", said Rodgers. It shouldn't be anything that we should see on a football field. "We didn't keep the ball for long enough", Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers said.

"And sometimes it takes some disappointments to make you understand and learn".

Winger Scott Sinclair shared Gordon's disappointment and agrees PSG are real contenders.

"Leigh's in really good form, he's a wonderful player and has developed over the past 12 months". That's the reality of it. Thiago Silva has remained equally cautious: "I don't know if we are favourites, but with the mercato, this lovely it was made, as you get closer to the goal". [PSG] are the potential champions of this tournament and where we are at, with all due respect, and where those guys are at, it is not just one or two levels, it is three or four levels away beyond.

The 18-year-old was thrown in the deep end having to mark the world's most expensive player as the Hoops were thrashed 5-0 at Celtic Park.

He said: "We're going there for the mythology, the chants, the atmosphere".

In last season's Champions League, Barcelona pulled off one of the most unbelievable comebacks against PSG when they overturned a 4-0 deficit to progress to the quarterfinals of the competition.

"It was very competitive, trust me".

PSG coach Unai Emery praised French superstar Mbappe for overcoming the shock of an attempted assault by a Celtic supporter after Cavani made it 3-0 from the penalty spot in the 40th minute.
