PSG’s superstars are ready to be unleashed as Lionel Messi gears up for his very first Champions League encounter for a team not named FC Barcelona.
The Argentine superstar has won UEFA’s showpiece tournament four times in his career yet the trophy remains an elusive dream for PSG. They will hope he can provide the key to success in 2021/22.
Messi is expected to start alongside Neymar and Kylian Mbappe for the first time as a trio this week, a tantalising prospect for fans across the globe and a daunting one for Club Brugge, the first team to potentially face their wrath.
PSG have started the season in expectedly terrific form with five wins out of five and 16 goals to their name. Messi has played just 24 minutes for his new team so far but enjoyed a fruitful international break with Argentina.
Club Brugge head into this one as rank outsiders despite leading the Belgian Pro League after seven games. However, while they have carved their way into top spot, Brugge were dealt a stunning defeat at the end of August as they were crushed 6-1 by Gent, who would be second-bottom if not for that result.

Our prediction: Club Brugge v PSG
Don’t expect wonders from PSG so soon into their new era, even though they will no doubt end up tearing teams to shreds by the end of 2021/22.
Messi may take a little time to slot into entirely fresh surroundings, while Mbappe must settle into the new world whereby he isn’t the brightest light in Paris.
That being said, PSG have too much talent in their XI to lose out here. The performance may not be perfect, it may not be a perfect symphony, but expect Pochettino to extract the right tune from his men on the night.
