Champions League 'a big objective' for PSG, says Emery

Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) coach Unai Emery said his side have learned lessons from the past after they started their Champions League Group B campaign with a 5-0 thrashing of Celtic.

Gabriel Jesus, at 20, is likely to become a global superstar, with the Brazilian already earmarked as Neymar's long-term successor on the international stage. Real legend Raul, for so long the Champions League benchmark, is way behind in third with 71 goals. The man was quickly caught by 'stewards' of Celtic Park, who withdrew from field of play.

Not many will expect the Bhoys to even earn a point from the encounter against a team boasting world-class footballers such as Neymar, Edinson Cavani, Marco Verratti, Thiago Silva and Angel Di Maria.

"They'll try and make it hard for PSG to open them up, as they should, then hit on the break". What I was really pleased with was the fact we were in control with the ball and without the ball.

As the Champions League prepares to return, however, there are a group of young pretenders with the potential to become the new superstars.

"He wants to be a great player and he is going to grow up into that role", Emery said of the 18-year-old who scored his second goal in two games.

The Exchange likes Liverpool [22.0] more than Atletico, which may or may not have something to do with the uncertainty caused by Los Colchoneros moving to a new stadium next week. Of course we have added to the team but it is more about all the people working together. "The eyes of the world will be on this game and the players are very clear on how to handle these kinds of situations". It was bitterly disappointing and I'm sure the club will deal with that.

Out of the four appearances Benyu has made for Celtic, two have been in the qualifying rounds of the Champions League.

As for the English contingent, well, we have five to choose from.

Working under Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, Jesus has a manager and club desperate for Champions League glory and his attacking qualities make him a match for Mbappe, Dembele and Asensio. It's just a question of which will be highest in the pursuit of emulating their greatness.
