Stan Collymore believes that Celtic will be unable to grind out a miraculous result against Paris Saint-Germain at Parkhead on Tuesday night.
The Hoops begin their Champions League group stage campaign by hosting the ultra-rich French side which boasts the most expensive attack force in the world after splashing the cash on Neymar and Kylian Mbappe in the summer.
Despite that, former England international Collymore has predicted that Brendan Rodgers’ men will manage to limit PSG to winning just 2-1 – which would no doubt be a respectable scoreline for the Glaswegians.
Collymore posted his predictions on his personal Twitter account on Monday night.
Manchester United 2 Basel 0
Celtic 1 PSG 2
Chelsea 3 Qarabag 0

Celtic have been dealt with a very tough group for the second year in-a-row after last season they were pitted against the likes of Barcelona and Manchester City.
This term has seen the Scottish champions drawn alongside PSG, Bayern Munich and Anderlecht in Group B, with the latter two facing each other at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday.
Both Celtic and their upcoming opponents have been in good form ahead of the Champions League group stage opener.
The Bhoys went top of the Scottish Premiership table on Friday night with a 4-1 win at Hamilton in which PSG loanee Odsonne Edouard scored on his debut while the Parisiens mauled Metz 5-1 on the same day.
