Team News

Club Bruges
PSG
  • Eder Balanta was forced off after half an hour at the weekend and joins Jose Izquierdo on the sidelines.
  • Wesley is still building up his fitness after sustaining a serious knee injury earlier this year and is unlikely to feature.
  • Kamal Sowah is expected to keep his spot on the right after a decent outing last time out.
  • Idrissa Gueye and Angel Di Maria are suspended after their red cards in PSG's semi-final exit defeat to Manchester City last season.
  • Sergio Ramos, Marco Verratti and Layvin Kurzawa are all ruled out for the away side.
  • Lionel Messi, Leandro Paredes and Neymar are all available having missed the 4-0 win over Clermont Foot and the trio should all start.
  • Fans may at long last bear witness to a front three of Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.

Prediction

  • After a 6-1 humbling at Gent prior to the international break, Club Bruges returned to domestic duties with a 3-0 win over Oostende to boost morale. However, the injury to Eder Balanta is a significant blow to the Belgian side.
  • PSG were ruthless against Clermont Foot, winning 4-0 to maintain their 100% start to the Ligue 1 season. The club hierarchy have Champions League aspirations and the French will seek to lay down a marker in Belgium.
  • The Parisian side are a level above Club Bruges and they should ease to victory on Wednesday night.

  • neymar just does not give his best when he plays for psg. its strange, he is someone else in the national team.

  • this was not as bad for a team who is playing for the first time in such with lots of changes,

  • this club bruges, play very rough. neymar needs to get game fit, gets annoyed very quickly. he gets off balance very quick. special player neymar.

  • pieces

  • on my Goodness, Man City, is gona tear this team into peaces

  • neymar and messi playing together, is a tough one. Neymar needs to do more running, messi need learn to do one two with lots of players.

  • Oh my goodness, these guys set at the back, and for a new team, its gona be tough to play teams like theses.

  • Can't beat Bruges with players such as these. Mauricio Pochettino, you suck!

  • Fixed match Because psg needs money so they sell the match today, can you imagine how much money today people around the world losted?

  • @drapdullah mmmm... this is intresting

  • Maybe buying ronaldo is what psg need

  • @Jaybird23 to loose against Young Boys or what LOL?

  • @Pastore10 lol...

  • PSG has no midfield, basically. Both technically and physically quite weak, And the attacking front is too passive. If you look at Real, Liverpool and City, you'll notice that the front three are able to do defending work. Anyway, this Bruges would have made it difficult for any team. Quite impressive how much confidence they had.

  • @Yassine_1 They miss Verratti really badly.

  • Bruges was so good. Damn. So aggressive and sharp. I bet 1500 euro on PSG. Don't ask. I cashed out a few minutes into the second half, when I saw the Bruges midfield just manhandle the French. Hell no, I thought. That decision saved me 1100 euro.

  • Great showing from Bruges, can defo be a black horse in the group

  • @Kendev Dark horse*

  • Such a poor match from Neymar.

  • Congratulations, Bruges! Tired in the last ten minutes, but brilliant before. Point deserved.

  • I don't understand why some people rate Poch. PSG absolutely atrocious. Good chances of ending up in Europa League with this team. What a joke

  • @alx30 Calm down. First UCL game of the season. Those players almost never played together. Patience and we'll see.

  • @Thypot Spot on. Come down. these people need a chance to play together..

  • 1:1 after FH? Relax P$G fans! P$G will buy Haaland, Lewanowski and Ronaldo, and in the next season Pochettino should finally be ready to really fight for win Coupe de la Ligue or maybe even Coupe de France - who knows?! - this is really great coach! He should finally win anything in his coach life, right? :'D

  • @afx Go back to bed, kid.

  • @Moriniq omg 1:1 even after full time? you see - you should rathergo to bed miss.

  • 3-5-2 is always the worst choice

  • even with messi, psg is irrelevant

  • @NuchalLine Your comment is irrelevant.

  • @Moriniq talk when you actually win the Champions League after spending another 2 billion

  • 0-4 PSG

  • Who's thinking about large bet on PSG/Barca?

  • Barca over 2.5 goals.

  • @Finucci This isn't Barcelona.

  • @Moriniq Yes sorry its my mistake, PSG goals over 2.5 with Messi. :)

  • Looking forward to seeing a 100% fit Messi playing.

  • @Rensen Not tonight

  • Confirmed by L’Equipe that PSG will play a mighty 4-3-3 with Neymar, Mbappe and Messi in this match. PSG will demolish Brugge.

  • @Moriniq but the only game Messi and Neymar played so far this season, PSG scored their least number of goals. it seems like they are better without them.

  • @uefalona what kind of weed are you puffing on? It's one game moron

  • @uefalona I don't think we watched the same match.

  • @uefalona Neymar is fat and Messi played only 25 minutes.

  • @GioMonaldo agreed on Neymar, always seems to come back out of shape after the Summer. I think it symbolises the difference between him and those at the very top of the game in terms of professionalism.

  • 0-10.

  • Will Neymar and Messi play ?
