Brendan Rodgers says that he is well aware of the magnitude of Celtic’s task as they host Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League this evening but insists that his side are looking to shock the world by pulling of a major upset.
PSG arrive in Glasgow with the likes of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani all looking to get on the scoresheet, like they did in their last outing against Metz and Rodgers says that while he is well aware of the qualities of the opposition, his side are not going to be overawed by them.
As reported by the Evening Standard, he said:
We are clear that the world will look at the game and everyone will expect us to lose but, for our players, our own cause is different. These are the games where you get the chance to write your story that can be heard worldwide. We fought so hard to get into the competition, so we can go on and make progress. Home games can be very important for us. We are facing a huge opponent, but we are excited by it. We won’t be overawed by it.
Celtic have had some amazing results at home in the Champions League against some of the biggest and best sides in the world and if they can manage to get a win this evening, another chapter will be written in the folklore of the club’s rich European history.
