Match Preview

PSG will visit the Jan Breydelstadion headquarters of Club Brugge in the opening match of Group A UEFA Champions League 2021/22, Thursday (16/09/2021) at 12:30 midnight Indian time.

In this group A, PSG and Brugge are joined together with Manchester City and RB Leipzig.

PSG are in very good shape ahead of this match. Last weekend,  Les Parisiens were able to win a landslide victory over Clermont 4-0 through goals from Ander Herrera (2), Kylian Mbappe, and Idrissa Gueye in the French League 1 event. The victory was PSG's 5th win in a row (W5 D0 L0).

In this match itself, PSG has been able to lower Lionel Messi since the early minutes of the match. As is known, in the previous match Messi could not appear because he was not fit after defending the Argentine national team in the 2022 World Cup qualifying match.

Meanwhile, Brugge has also prepared well ahead of this match. Brugge last weekend successfully won 3-0 over KV Oostende through  Noa Lang's brace and Hans Vanaken's goal in the Belgian 1st Division. The victory made Brugge only swallow 1 defeat in the last 11 matches (W8 D2 L1).

PSG and Brugge themselves have met twice before, namely in the 2019/20 UEFA Champions League group stage match. PSG won both matches with a score of 5-0 and 1-0 respectively.

If you judge in terms of quality, PSG will of course be much more favored over Brugge in this match.

However, PSG still cannot be complacent considering that Brugge is quite strong when playing in front of their own supporters.
