THIS PAIR WILL BLOW YOU AWAY; Draxler warns Hoops: Neymar and Mbappe as deadly as grenades; Draxler's warning.

Byline: Gordon Parks

PSG hitman Julian Draxler has warned Celtic they are about to face "two grenades" in Neymar and Kylian Mbappe in Tuesday night's Champions League showdown.

The German believes the arrival of two of the best players in the world at the French club for a combined cost of PS364million will wreak a path of destruction across Europe.

Friday night's 5-1 hammering of Metz saw the pair both find the target and Draxler said: "We certainly got two grenades this summer.

"We have signed Neymar, one of the best players in the world, and with Mbappe we have one of the greatest talents in the world."

Both hitmen warmed up for the Group B opener in Glasgow in ominous fashion and Draxler, who was a mere PS35m recruit for PSG from Wolfsburg, insists the pair are just a part of an attacking 'superteam' ready to bring shock and awe to the competition.

He said: "I am proud to be part of this offensive superteam at PSG and I will do my best to get games and help the club deliver a great offensive spectacle.

"I am confident enough to face the competition and get involved in such a team.

"When we get to know the guys on the pitch better I think we will experience some spectacular things and we hope to go very far in the Champions League."
