PADDY ROBERTS is adamant Celtic have the attacking strength to shock Paris Saint-Germain tomorrow night.
Leigh Griffiths is set to overcome his calf knock, Moussa Dembele is pushing for a place on the bench and new recruit Odsonne Edouard got off to a flier with a goal on his debut in the 4-1 win over Hamilton Accies last week.
Roberts can also point to the quality provided by Scotty Sinclair and James Forrest as the Hoops embark on another great European adventure.
The fans’ favourite insisted: “On our day, we can kill teams off. The first game is at Celtic Park which is important for us.
“If we can get the fans behind us, then we can hurt them with our counter-attacks and our speed.
“We have some real firepower with the new lad coming in and Griff. It is good. We shouldn’t be underestimated.
“I want to perform at the highest level. I know I’ve got to do that. But I have that mentality. I have just got to show that on the pitch.
“Last year we competed against the best and this year we have a similar type of group.
“We go into it the same way as we did last year. But we are more experienced now.
“We know what the Champions League is like. We will go into it more confident and, hopefully, get something out of the games.”
