Club Brugge may have played well in patches, but PSG’s defence had a relatively easy task in keeping them from scoring. Thomas Tuchel's back-four of Thomas Meunier, Thiago Silva, Presnel Kimpembe and Juan Bernat performed their duties splendidly as they helped PSG keep a third consecutive clean sheet in the Champions League.

The reigning Ligue 1 champions are yet to concede a goal in the European competition this season.

PSG encountered a scare mid-way through the second half when it looked like their defence was finally breached by Krepin Diatta. The Senegalese midfielder found the back of the net, but the goal was ultimately ruled out for handball.

That effort was the only time Club Brugge managed to get the better of their opponents' backline. The likes of Emmanuel Bonaventure and Percy Tau huffed and puffed but failed to make any significant impact in the final third.

Club Brugge, who drew 2-2 with Real Madrid in their previous Champions League outing, failed to find the back of the net for the second time in Europe this season - following their goalless draw with Galatasaray in Game-week 1.
