Celtic begin their Champions League Group B campaign this evening with a glamour tie at home to Paris Saint-Germain.

Brendan Rodgers' side go into the match on the back of a 4-1 win at Hamilton on Friday night while PSG thrashed Metz 5-1 as they continued their perfect start to the Ligue 1 season.

Head coach Unai Emery has brought in Neymar, Dani Alves and Kylian Mbappe this summer but Celtic have caused more than their share of upsets on Champions League nights in the East End of Glasgow and are hoping to do the same against their star-studded opponents.

Rodgers, who has confirmed that Leigh Griffiths is fit to play, said: "We have developed a courage to play our game and to physically press and work teams. The attitude is everything in these games. If you stand off top-class players, they’ll punish you."
