Celtic v Paris Saint Germain - UEFA Champions League
Can the PSG juggernaut be stopped?

Celtic raced to an early lead at the Parc des Princes in their UEFA Champions League Group B clash against Paris Saint-Germain, before the French side completely annihilated the visitors to record a 7-1 win - their biggest in the history of the competition.

Unai Emery's side were absolutely ruthless against the Scottish outfit, having already recorded a 5-0 win in the reverse fixture.

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. However, what followed was complete domination by PSG as Neymar and company ran-riot against Brendan Rodgers' side, breaking a couple of records in the process.

Neymar and Edinson Cavani both bagged braces, while Kylian Mbappe, Marco Verratti, and Dani Alves all got their names on the scoresheet. The win helped PSG shatter the Champions League group stage scoring record - having scored 24 goals in 5 games this season.

Here are the 5 talking points from PSG's record-breaking win over Celtic:

#5 Neymar-Cavani-Mbappe: Best front 3 in world football?

Celtic v Paris Saint Germain - UEFA Champions League
The new holy trinity?

With MSN (Messi-Suarez-Neymar) disbanded - courtesy of the departure of Neymar - the onus was on BBC (Bale-Benzema-Cristiano) to establish themselves as the deadliest front three in world football.

However, the Real Madrid trio have struggled to get going this season, especially when it comes to league football, allowing others to make the most of this missed opportunity. And it seems PSG have not just pounced on the chance but have become the best front 3 in world football at the moment.

Neymar-Cavani-Mbappe have netted 41 goals across all competitions this season and have ensured that the Parc des Princes outfit are unbeaten so far.


PSG's holy trinity were on song as they contributed to 5 of the 7 goals scored last night. Such has been the dominance of the French outfit in Europe's elite competition this season, that they broke the goalscoring record of the group stage of the tournament, that too with a game to spare.

Just like MSN, great things are in-store for Neymar's new strike partnership.
