Paris Saint-Germain talisman Edinson Cavani believes that Celtic will make it extremely difficult for them in the upcoming Champions League encounter.

The Hoops travel to the Parc des Princes on Wednesday evening having already been knocked out of the competition a fortnight ago.

Brendan Rodgers’ side will be seeking revenge after the Ligue 1 table toppers cruised to a 5-0 victory at Celtic Park in the reverse fixture in September.

Cavani bagged himself a brace that evening alongside Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and an own goal from Mikael Lustig.

Speaking ahead of the upcoming European tie, the Uruguayan is convinced that the SPL champions will provide a stern test for the French outfit.

“Each match is different in the Champions League,” he said as quoted in the Daily Record.

“And Celtic will play against us with a different face.

“I don’t expect an easy game. Of course, we are a better team but in any 90 minutes, the situation can change.

“It is not a bad team. And the key for us will be to score early so Celtic will need to react and that will make the match far more open for us.”

The forward has been in sensational form so far this season, contributing with 19 goals and two assists in all competitions.

Cavani is one of the main reasons why PSG are currently sitting at the top of the league table with a six point advantage over current champions Monaco.

Although the Hoops go into this tie as the overwhelming underdogs, they can look to their domestic form to provide them with confidence.

Celtic are currently unbeaten in 64 matches in all domestic competitions and with regards to current form, they have managed to keep two consecutive clean sheets in the league.
