Having splashed out a world-record fee for Neymar and agreed a £166million payment to make Kylian Mbappe's loan move permanent next year, PSG have their sights set on the biggest prizes.

A Celtic fan ran onto the Park Head pitch this evening to throw a kick at Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe, though fortunately he missed.

"They are both great players with high technical ability", Silva said.

He explained to Talksport: "A lot of people ask me, 'Why do you support a Scottish team when you were born in London?' Well, my dad was born in Edinburgh - he was a Hibernian supporter".

The Atletico defender also said he felt that Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo had been fortunate to win the Ballon d'Or past year, in a vote that saw Messi finish second and Atletico's Antoine Griezmann third.

It promises to be a night of exciting football at Celtic Park, but Bhoys fans will be hoping their side do not suffer a repeat of the thrashing Barcelona gave them previous year.

The French side created shock waves across Europe with their transfer business over the summer.

PSG have created 78 chances in Ligue 1 this season.

PSG's pressure soon paid off but Neymar's opener wasn't without controversy.

With an aim of winning the Champions League, tonight's match against Celtic is very important for Unai Emery and his team.

"We always have to be competitive and we weren't for that first period but the second half was much better and the supporters acknowledged that".

A moment of madness from Celtic allowed the French side to add to their advantage before the break as Jozo Simunovic needlessly pulled back Cavani in the box. The Uruguayan picked up himself before neatly slotting home from the spot.

Yet Celtic's hope of at least holding PSG scoreless in the second half disappeared when Lustig had the misfortune of deflecting Draxler's driven ball from the right into his own goal.

"The reality is, with these types of attacks, which we've seen with Manchester as well, they're going for the softest target".

Ceferin was quoted as telling ECA members: "If I want to be as popular as (predecessor) Michel (Platini who conceived FFP) I know I have to exclude the PSG from European competition".
