PSG will start their Champions League campaign in the city of Glasgow where they take on Scottish Giants, Celtic.

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has claimed that Paris Saint-Germain must challenge for the Champions League this season given the quality of their squad.

However, the Hoops boast an impressive history in the prolific competition at Celtic Park and are now top of the Scottish Premiership standings.

He has since proved a scoring sensation for the French youth teams and had a spell on loan at Toulouse last season.

The explosive forward travelled to London for a trial with Chelsea aged just 11 but eventually made a decision to sign for Monaco.

PSG have won their first five Ligue 1 matches after forking out fortunes during this summer's transfer window.

Mbappe, 18, looks certain to start for the Paris big-spenders tomorrow night in a formidable forward line also featuring Neymar and Cavani.

It is obvious there is still a cold war brewing between Neymar and the leadership at Barcelona as he took to social media to blast the president of his former club.

The general consensus of opinion was that the 25-year-old Brazilian striker believed he'd have to step out of the shadow of Lionel Messi to pursue his dreams of winning the coveted Ballon d'Or award.

Neymar was jeered off Parkhead last season while playing for Barcelona after spars with Scott Brown and Mikael Lustig. I did not think he would come to be honest.

"I would like to emphasise that the security measures, which includes the presence of armed officers, are not in response to any particular threat as there is no intelligence to suggest that - similar measures have been introduced across a number of stadiums and are being used at Ibrox and Hampden". I was struggling to understand what had happened to me. "I am not interested about anything from the past".
