Celtic took a first-minute lead against PSG at the Parc de Princes in their Champions League Group B match on Wednesday night, but that was as good as it got for the Scottish champions as they were ruthlessly swept aside.
The Parisian side hit back almost immediately, with two goals from Neymar and Edinson Cavani, plus one each for Kylian Mbappe, Marco Verratti and Dani Alves as PSG ran out 7-1 winners to record their biggest ever win in the competition.

Moussa Dembele had opened the scoring with Celtic’s first attack, before Neymar hit back with a quick-fire double as PSG embarrassed Brendan Rogers’ side.
The French side won the first encounter between the sides 5-0 and now have five wins from five with a goal difference of +23.
.@btsportfootball Celtic outclassed as many expected..7-1 PSG classy?? Rodgers tactics are fine but the defensive personnel and goalkeeper aren’t at this elite level… Your thoughts??

Despite the hammering, Celtic are still in with a chance of qualifying for the Europa League as the Hoops remain third in Champions League Group, B three points above bottom-placed Anderlecht, who lost 2-1 to Bayern Munich with just one game remaining.
And the Celtic fans didn’t let the loss get them down.
