“(The Champions League theme tune) sends a shiver down the spine.

An Edinson Cavani double and goals from Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, supplemented by a Mikael Lustig own goal, ensured a convincing victory for the dominant visitors, who gave Celtic a footballing lesson.

Draxler is convinced £198m Neymar and £166m Mbappe can continue their hot streak against the Hoops. In matchweek 1 they visit Feyenoord and we’re not sure they’ll get the win. But it’s about confidence and belief and we’re obviously missing some decisive players who can help us at this level. I would like to stress that it was a team effort.

“I wish we had one more defender, I think we’re good up front, we’ve got a flood of midfield players”.

“We want to take it step by step. The motivation is here in order to try to go as far as possible”. Unai Emery, Paris Saint-Germain’s manager, has admitted on the eve of the Champions League getting under way that he feels a “responsibility” to deliver success after a summer transfer splurge. But he insisted he could never quit such a star-studded line-up.

“To score against Juve you have to be ideal, and that’s what Real managed to do in the final a year ago”.

Winger Scott Sinclair shared Gordon’s disappointment and agrees PSG are real contenders.

“I know it is a big objective for the club, but we are doing and feeling well, the players are doing well but I know it will be hard”, Emery told reporters ahead of their clash with Scottish champions Celtic.

Brendan Rodgers’ men have gone from strength to strength since the turn of the year, and are unbeaten in their last 54 domestic matches.

He said: “Everybody is trying to find a way to beat PSG, but it’s nearly impossible”. It does not change anything. He can maybe make the difference.
