Neymar, Cavani score brace as PSG wallop Celtic 7-1 to set up new Champions League record

Already qualified Paris Saint Germain were in their element at the Parc des Princes in Paris as they ran riot over helpless Celtic winning by seven goals to one. Celtic opened the goal scoring in the first minute of the game when Moussa Dembele cooly slotted home after 56 seconds. But it did not take long before PSG responded as Neymar pounced on a brilliant pass from Raboit to slot home the equalizer in the ninth minute.

PSG never looked back from then as Neymar added the second before turning provider for Edison Cavani to score the third. French starlet Mbappe added the fourth for PSG before half time to give Unai Emery’s men a super comfortable lead at half time. PSG were in good form on Wednesday, November 22 against Celtic.

The second half was not as lively as the first as PSG took their foot off the pedal a bit but the Scottish Champions never posed any real threat to PSG going forward. PSG switched up the tempo in the last 15 minutes of the game as quick goals from Verratti, Edison Cavani and Dani Alves made it 7-1 as they completed the rout for the French side. The French club have scored the most goals in this year’s Champions League. They have also scored more goals in a single Champions League group stage than any other side ever with 24 goals after five games. The French Ligue 1 side will hope to continue with this good form in the knockout phase of the Champions League.
