Paradise Cauldron Will Set Platform For Good Result Against PSG - Brendan Rodgers

But Rodgers confirmed Dembele, who netted 32 goals during his breakthrough season in the Scottish Premier League last time around, won't be ready for their opening tie against the star-studded French side.

Here's everything you need to know ahead of the game. The Hoops made a decent fist of it with three draws and there is little doubt that they have improved, winning the domestic treble last season. The Parisians are clear favourites with Bet365, rated at 1/4 with Bet365.

Kylian Mbappe says he has admiration for PSG teammate Neymar and wants to help the Brazilian unleash his best on the pitch.

He said, "It's great to think you're going to play against the talent they've got". "Just from this game".

"He (Griffiths) was in real good form". Most of Bayern's key players played their parts in the World Cup qualifiers last week, which wasn't the case with most of Hoffenheim's players. Still, the two were out in the Metz game as well, but PSG managed to make a big win.

"All teams deserve to be there".

And he believes it is important not to allow the stature of PSG to affect his approach to the tie. The boys are here from September through until May, for a full academic and football year.

PSG have strengthened since their Barca loss, adding Neymar in a world-record move from the La Liga giants and Kylian Mbappe, initially on loan from Monaco.

Two who will miss the trip to Celtic Park, however, are Angel Di Maria and Javier Pastore, both suffering from thigh injuries. It created a mesmerising situation in which Metz simply couldn't track any of them.

"Dani Alves is really experienced, a top class player over the last decade, with Barcelona and Juventus". The atmosphere between us is magnificent.

"With that confidence, we want to get the job done".

"I'm very excited to play against PSG because before I was a supporter of Paris, and to play against them is close to a dream for me".

"That is what you must expect at a big side". If the Uruguayan is successful marshalled out of the game, Neymar will pop up, such is his role in his new team.
