PSG's impressive forward line secures 5-0 win at Celtic

Neymar led Paris Saint-Germain to an emphatic 5-0 win at Celtic in the Champions League on Tuesday as the French side's formidable attacking lineup tore the hosts' defense to shreds.

The Group B match at Celtic Park was one-sided and PSG led 3-0 at halftime with goals from Neymar, France forward Kylian Mbappe and Uruguay striker Edinson Cavani.

PSG's attacking trident has been nicknamed the "MCN" by French media, a reference to the former "MSN" Barcelona trio of Lionel Messi, Luiz Suarez and Neymar.

Cavani had a goal canceled for an offside position and PSG had a clear chance to move ahead soon after when the Uruguay forward forced 'keeper Craig Gordon into a good save with a half-volley from 20 meters.

Celtic's answer came from Leigh Griffiths' free kick which was finger-tipped over the bar by PSG goalkeeper Alphonse Areola, but it was a rare moment of attack for the hosts, who went down 2-0 when Mbappe slotted home from Neymar's assist.
