Michael Stewart suggests how Celtic can win against PSG

17 Setiembre 2017

"I know I have a lot of responsibility because I have a lot of good players at my disposal and there are some good teams in the Champions League, and Celtic is one of them".

Brendan Rodgers's side will head into the match against French powerhouse PSG at home on Tuesday evening as underdogs. Real legend Raul, for so long the Champions League benchmark, is way behind in third with 71 goals.

The Parisians, boasting a stellar attacking trident of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani, produced a classy display to put the Hoops to the sword in the opening encounter. The atmosphere is incredible and they try to share the pressure together. What I was really pleased with was the fact we were in control with the ball and without the ball.

Celtic perform far better there too, only losing two of their last eight European games at the ground.

The Exchange likes Liverpool [22.0] more than Atletico, which may or may not have something to do with the uncertainty caused by Los Colchoneros moving to a new stadium next week.

"But I have seen it happen time and again in this competition and if PSG show weakness in that area, Celtic have the players who can make the most of it".

And the 19-year-old explained that it would be "crazy" for him on a personal level to play in the group stage of the Champions League as he was involved in non-league football earlier in the year.

The Catalan superclub aren't suffering too much on the pitch at the moment, judging from their 5-0 hammering of local rivals Espanyol on Saturday, but they were still very disappointed with their summer business. "It will be difficult but we are ready".

After being signed for just €3.9m from Mallorca in 2014, Asensio cost Real a fraction of the fees paid out for Mbappe and Dembele, but he is capable of having the same kind of impact on the Champions League.

As for the English contingent, well, we have five to choose from.

The Hoops have been drawn in a tough group. "He wants to be a great player and he is going to grow up into that role", Emery said.
