Video: Watch Celtic U19s Knock the Ball Around Like Brazil vs PSG

Ahead of tonight’s Champions League clash between Celtic and PSG at Parkhead, the under-19s from both sides faced off in the UEFA Youth League.

And while the Parisian youngsters secured a dramatic 3-2 victory over the Hoops, it was a goal scored by Celtic’s highly-rated Jack Aitchison that was the true highlight.

The sublime build up to Aitchison’s strike saw 20 passes executed by the home side, with a cheeky nutmeg thrown in too.

Yes, they may have been playing in green and white, but you’d be forgiven for thinking there was an element of Brazilian magic about this goal:

 

 

It seems almost impossible that Brendan Rodgers’ side will be able to recreate a move like this one against tonight’s opponents.

Especially with PSG having scored 19 goals in their last five league games – conceding just three in the process.

However, with a buoyant Celtic Park behind them, on a noisy night in the Champions League.. stranger things have happened.
