Paris Saint-Germain downed Celtic 7-1 on Wednesday evening, all but wrapping up top spot in Group B. PSG are three points clear of Bayern, who need a four-goal victory to topple the Frenchmen from their perch on the last matchday.

Paris' attacking trident once again made the difference at Parc des Princes. Barely one minute had been played when Celtic took the lead, Moussa Dembélé opening the scoring, but Neymar soon levelled before putting the Parisians in front midway through the first half. Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappé closed out the meeting before half-time, Marco Verratti, Cavani and Dani Alves adding gloss to an already impressive scoreline in the second half.
