PSG Hits Five Against Celtic
Paris St Germain‘s attacking trio of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani were all on the scoresheet as they tore Celtic apart to lead the French club to a 5-0 rout in their Champions League Group B opener on Tuesday.
The world’s most expensive player coolly finished and then had a hand in PSG’s second, which was finished emphatically by Kylian Mbappe.
Edinson Cavani converted a penalty for the visitors’ third before the break.
Mikael Lustig‘s own goal was followed by Cavani’s second of the night, a superb diving header.
“I’m very happy. It was a fantastic match and I’m happy for the team. It was an important win,” Neymar told reporters.
Asked about Mbappe, he said: “It’s always a pleasure to play with great players, even though he’s young. For me, he’s a great player and he has the potential to improve even more.”
Elsewhere in Group B, hosts Bayern Munich won 3-0 against Anderlecht, who had a man sent off.
