Confirmed Paris SG v Celtic lineups: Ntcham starts, Sinclair only on the bench

Celtic take on Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League this evening...

Celtic are back in Champions League action as they travel to France to take on Paris Saint-Germain, two months since losing 5-0 to the French giants at Celtic Park.

The Bhoys beat Ross County 1-0 over the weekend, but now return to European action having lost 2-1 to Bayern Munich in their last Champions League outing.

Brendan Rodgers' men are still hoping to land third spot in their group and a subsequent Europa League spot, with Celtic fielding a strong side tonight.

Craig Gordon starts in goal, with Mikael Lustig, Dedryck Boyata, Jozo Simunovic and Kieran Tierney starting across the back four.

Scott Brown and Olivier Ntcham will sit behind Tom Rogic in midfield, with James Forrest and Callum McGregor supporting lone striker Moussa Dembele.

Scott Sinclair is only on the bench, alongside Dorus de Vries, Nir Button, Kouassi Eboue, Stuart Armstrong, Patrick Roberts and Leigh Griffiths.

Meanwhile, PSG head into the game having beaten Anderlecht 5-0 in their last Champions League outing, with Unai Emery's side looking like a major contender for the Champions League title.

Alphonse Areola starts in goal, with a strong back four of Dani Alves, Marquinhos, Thiago Silva and Layvin Kurzawa in front of the shot-stopper.

Adrien Rabiot and Marco Verratti will sit in midfield, with Julian Draxler, Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani all starting in the final third.

Angel Di Maria is only named as a substitute, with Kevin Trapp, Presnel Kimpembe, Thomas Meunier, Yuri Berchiche, Javier Pastore and Giovani Lo Celso also on the bench.
