PSG broke the Champions League record of most goals scored in the group stage as they swept away 7-1 in Paris. Their haul of 24 goals broke the haul of 21 goals set by Borussia Dortmund in 2016.
The Scottish side opened the scoring in the first minute through Moussa Dembele, but were not prepared for what came next as a brace each from Neymar and Cavani plus one each from Kylian Mbappe, Verratti, and Dani Alves, ensured Celtic conceded 7 goals in a Champions League match for the second time after Barcelona.
In Basel, Manchester City were left to pay for their missed chances in a dominant first half in which Marouane Fellaini and Marcos Rojo both hit the woodwork as they fell 1-0 to FC Basel.
Michael Lang’s 89th-minute goal was as a result of a defensive lapse from Manchester United in addition to a good football passing technique to give them a chance of a Round of 16 spot.
In Baku, two goals from Willian and one each from Edem Hazard and Cesc Fabregas ensured Chelsea’s qualification to the next stage after the trounced FC Qarabag 4-0.
