Paris Saint German 4-1 Celtic
GOAL! Kylian Mbappe (35 mins)

PSG are good enough to bury most sides but that’s now two goals Celtic have conceded from set-pieces. The ball in is not dealt with, Marquinhos flicks it on to Kylian Mbappe, he hammers in a shot and while Craig Gordon gets a hand to it it still goes in off the inside of the post.

This could get ugly for Celtic.

GOAL! Edinson Cavani 28 mins)

The floodgates are opening up now. PSG score an ugly goal to prove they can do it all, Neymar heading a free-kick across goal and presenting Edinson Cavani with an unmissable chance inside the six-yard box.

GOAL! Genius. That’s all you can really say. Nothing at all I think Celtic can do about this as Neymar pops a one-two with Marco Verratti, his first touch propels him beyond a Celtic defender and then he snakes home left-footed from just inside the area.

So accurate, so well struck.

GOAL! It was nice while it lasted! PSG 1-1 Celtic

Neymar had barely touched the ball but he has PSG level with a clinical strike. Celtic give the ball away under no pressure in midfield, criminal at this level, and Adrien Rabiot finds Neymar inside the area.

One touch to control, one to flash a left-footed shot across Craig Gordon and in from a tight angle.

Class.

GOAL !- PSG 0-1 Celtic
Moussa Dembele (2 mins)

This is not a drill!

Celtic lead, as they win a corner cheaply, it’s cut back to Moussa Dembeleand he cracks in a shot from 20 yards. Goalkeeper Alphonse Areola has got to deal with it though. Crisp-packet wrists, and he can only push it into the net!

Basel 0-0 Manchester United
Scoreless in Turin. Barcelona have failed to find the score sheet in three of their last four away Champions League games. Though supporters will no doubt take heart in the secret weapon stashed away for emergency.
Paul Pogba captains a Manchester United side that shows seven changes from the starting XI that beat Newcastle 4-1 at the weekend.

Marcos Rojo comes in for Victor Lindelof at centre-back while Marcus Rashford drops to the bench in favour of Jesse Lingard.

Luke Shaw and Zlatan Ibrahimovic are both primed on the bench.

Manchester United XI: Romero, Darmian Smalling, Rojo, Blind, Herrera, Fellaini, Lingard, Pogba, Martial, Lukaku

CSKA Moscow 2-0 Benfica (FULL TIME)
End of an era!

CSKA Moscow 2-0 Benfica

CSKA Moscow goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev has kept his first Champions League clean sheet (not including qualifiers) since 1st November 2006 against Arsenal – ending a run of 43 games without one!

Georgi Shchennikov scored in the 18 minutes and Jardel made an owned goal in the 58th minutes.

Juventus 0-0 Barcelona

Champions League: Juventus v Barcelona – Messi on bench
I can see the logic, sort of. Barca need a draw, away from home, and Ernesto Valverde has packed the midfield. But Gerard Deulofeu is playing…

Juventus: Buffon, Barzagli, Benatia, Rugani, Cuadrado, Pjaca, Khedira, Alex Sandro, Dybala, Douglas Costa, Higuain. Subs: Szczesny, De Sciglio, Marchisio, Matuidi, Mandzukic, Asamoah, Bentancur.

Barcelona: ter Stegen, Nelson Semedo, Pique, Umtiti, Digne, Rakitic, Sergio Busquets, Iniesta, Deulofeu, Luis Suarez, Paulinho. Subs: Cillessen, Denis Suarez, Messi, Alcacer, Jordi Alba, Aleix Vidal, Vermaelen.

Referee: Milorad Mazic (Serbia)

Sporting CP 0-0 Olympiacos

Atletico Madrid 0-0 Roma
Anderlecht 0-0 Bayern Munich
