UEFA Champions League Paris Saint-Germain VS Club Brugge

Paris Saint-Germain VS Club Brugge

by: Barney Cruz

Only six players from the four most recent UEFA Champions League Campaigns from 2017 to 2018 directly contributed to 30+ goals in the tournament. Kylian Mbappé, Lionel Messi, and Neymar all play for Paris Saint-Germain, half of the entire team. PSG and Club Brugge, two past opponents in the UEFA Champions League group stage, will face each other for the second year in a row from 2019 to 2020. France was victorious in both of those games, winning by a total score of 6-0.


In the UEFA Champions League, Paris Saint-Germain has contested six games against Belgian opponents, winning five of them and drawing one. They have scored 21 goals, yet only conceded one goal over these six matches. The heaviest defeat in their history in European play came against Paris Saint-Germain when they lost 5-0 at home during the 2019-2020 UEFA Champions League.


The Columbian winger Jose Izquierdo is still injured, and hence is certain to miss Club Brugge’s next match. In addition, Philippe Clement, the manager, will have the entire complement of players at his fingertips. Meanwhile, French left-back Layvin Kurzawa and Spanish center-back Sergio Ramos are unavailable to Mauricio Pochettino of Paris Saint-Germain. French center-back Presnel Kimpembe, Italian midfielder Marco Verratti, and right-back Colin Dagba are all in question regarding their availability. Idrissa Gueye and Angel Di Maria are both suspended and are unable to play for Senegal and Argentina, respectively. Sergio Rico, Rafinha, and Juan Bernat have not been selected for the squad.


Paris Saint-Germain, famously referred to as PSG, is looking as powerful as they could be following a five-game winning streak. In their two faceoffs against Club Brugge in the previous UEFA Champions League, they won both games, 5-0 and 1-0. This September 16, facing off against Club Brugge in the upcoming UEFA Champions League, Messi, Neymar, and Mbappé will have their first debut playing with each other.


While Club Brugge’s 22-year old exciting attacking talent, Noa Lang, a left-winger who displayed his talents this season, and Stanley Noski, a center-back who developed his skills at Paris Saint-Germain before is still not enough against the trio of Messi, Mbappe, and Neymar. The thought of facing this trio should strike fear into the hearts of any team, let alone a team like Club Brugge who shipped six goals to Gent two weeks ago.


Paris Saint-Germain is seeking to demolish Club Brugge once again and should win Match Result and Goals Handicap -2.5, where the odds are currently high at 1.23 and 2.65 respectively at 747.live. They are looking to sweep Club Brugge 0-3 with odds of 7.80 here.


Club Brugge will once again take on Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League group stage, this time in Bruges, Belgium, at Jan Breydel Stadium on September 16, 2021, at 3:00, am (GMT+8).
