15′ GOAL! NO! OFFSIDE! Let off for Celtic, but what a goal it would have been. Some super slick stuff between Motta, Verratti and Rabiot and they finally work the ball out to Kurzawa who crosses for Cavani to tap in at the far post – but the flag is raised and it won’t count. Good call by the officials!
19′ GOAL! Celtic 0-1 PSG (Neymar) Neymar scores for PSG! It has been coming and the Brazilian makes the breakthrough afer a rare Celtic surge forwards breaks down. The crowd howl for a free kick but instead Rabiot plays in Neymar, who beats Ralston and smashes it past Gordon and into the roof of the net. Superb finish.
41′ GOAL! Celtic 0-3 PSG (Cavani, Pen) The striker makes no mistake from the spot, sidefooting the ball into the top corner as Gordon dives the other way. Great penalty. Celtic are in damage limitation mode now.
