From outside, it looked easy. Paris Saint-Germain were 3-0 up at Celtic Park before halftime, finished the game on a resounding 5-0, but Neymar showed his respect to the Scottish club after the game, saying
it’s always very difficult to come here. Great stadium, passionate fans, you need to be at your best to win here, and to do so with such a big score is something special.
The Brazilian star scored PSG’s first goal, before assisting in Kylian Mbappe’s second, just after the half-hour mark. Edinson Cavani made it 3-0 before going to the dressing room at halftime. The Uruguayan found the back of the net again later, from the penalty spot, after Mikael Lustig’s own goal.
It’s always a pleasure to play with great players, even though he’s young. For me, he’s a great player and he has the potential to improve even more
Neymar told UEFA.com, before repeating that earning such a big victory at Celtic Park is never easy.
Congratulations to all my team-mates. Scoring five goals here certainly isn’t easy
were the Brazilian’s words. PSG have started the season in flying colours, winning all five games so far in the Ligue 1, the Super Cup in France before that, and now ‘scaring’ Europe with a 5-0 in Glasgow.
