Neymar and Edinson Cavani celebrating

Paris Saint-Germain were in the mood as they comeback from behind to hammer a shellshocked Celtic 7-1 in the Champions League on Wednesday.


Moussa Dembele had put the visitors ahead inside a minute at the Parc des Princes, but Neymar‘s brace soon turned the game around and both Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe added goals of their own before the interval.


Marco Verratti made it five with quarter of an hour left, before Cavani got his second and a sensational Dani Alves hit wrapped up the French giants’ win.


The victory was PSG’s biggest win in the Champions League, and a chastening night for the visitors, who lost 5-0 to the French side at home earlier in the group.


However the Scottish champions still have the advantage in the fight to finish third in Group B and qualify for the Europa League after bottom-placed Anderlecht lost their fifth game in a row, this time 2-1 to Bayern Munich.


PSG have scored 24 goals in their five matches – a Champions League group stage record, with one game still to play.
