All eyes will be on Lionel Messi and PSG as they take on Club Brugge in the UEFA Champions League


02:43 (IST)16 SEP 2021

Right, so Club Brugge have given us a performance for the ages, and PSG still have work to do with their star-studded squad. Liverpool and Real Madrid have won tonight, with the two Milan clubs narrowly missing out on victories. This has been an eventful week of European football, and it's only just getting started.

There's plenty more to come here at Sportskeeda so until then, this is Aditya Hosangadi signing off. Cheers, and have a good night!

02:37 (IST)16 SEP 2021

Meanwhile, Pep Guardiola's Manchester City have run riot against RB Leipzig, ending their nine-goal thriller with a 6-3 victory. They've topped their group at the moment, and PSG have more difficult tests to navigate in the Champions League this month.

02:28 (IST)16 SEP 2021

Lionel Messi will have to wait a few more days for his first goal in PSG colours, and several of the team's players will be disappointed with their performances tonight. The French giants huffed and puffed to no avail, and Club Brugge seemed likelier to score for large parts of the match.

02:27 (IST)16 SEP 2021

Make no mistake, this has been a herculean effort by Club Brugge. They were up against one of the best attacks in world football, and did more than just hold their ground. Flanders is a place of grit and tenacity, and as is the case with the history of the region, Bruges gave the Parisians their fair share of nightmares.

02:21 (IST)16 SEP 2021

FULL TIME: Club Brugge 1-1 PSG

02:20 (IST)16 SEP 2021

90 + 2' Change for Club Brugge, Faitout Maouassa on for Kamal Sowah.

02:18 (IST)16 SEP 2021

Easily cleared by Club Brugge, and now there's two minutes of stoppage-time.

02:17 (IST)16 SEP 2021

90' Corner for PSG! Neymar bursts through the channel, determined as ever, but Mata recovers to concede the corner.

02:15 (IST)16 SEP 2021

87' Meanwhile, Club Brugge win a corner at the other end. The delivery is poor though, and they have to play it all the way back to Mignolet.

02:14 (IST)16 SEP 2021

86' Intricate play from PSG again, but Icardi finds himself offside. Messi is in the thick of it at the moment, and he could be crucial for PSG here.

02:13 (IST)16 SEP 2021

85' Poor from Julian Draxler this time, Messi lays the ball off on the left but it's a nothing cross from the German. Club Brugge aren't been made to toil just as yet.

02:11 (IST)16 SEP 2021

84' Excellent play by Messi and Herrera, but Icardi can't keep himself onside. Time running out now for PSG.

02:10 (IST)16 SEP 2021

83' Neymar with a poor challenge on Nsoki, and it's quite shocking that that's not a booking. Blatant foul.

02:10 (IST)16 SEP 2021

82' Keylor Navas with a nervous moment! He's forced into a mistake by Club Brugge's press, and PSG have to strive to get the ball back.

02:09 (IST)16 SEP 2021

81' ICARDI! Nearly converts his flick, and it's only inches wide. Nuno Mendes has already made a massive difference.

02:07 (IST)16 SEP 2021

79' Mendes with a wonderful run on the left, brilliant burst of pace. Finds Messi with his cut-back, but he skies his effort. PSG need a moment of magic from him.

02:05 (IST)16 SEP 2021

77' Neymar nearly finds Icardi with another impressive attempt, but Club Brugge just about manage to intercept his pass.

02:04 (IST)16 SEP 2021

76' Yellow Card for Eder Balanta.
Blatant pull of Neymar's shirt, and that's a straightforward booking. PSG with a free-kick.

02:02 (IST)16 SEP 2021

75' Nuno Mendes replaces Abdou Diallo for PSG.

02:02 (IST)16 SEP 2021

74' Lang attempts the spectacular!! Attempts a bicycle kick from close range and makes contact, but doesn't get the direction right.

02:00 (IST)16 SEP 2021

72' Yellow Card for Lionel Messi!
Late challenge on Mats Rits, and he's slightly unlucky to go into the referee's books there.

01:58 (IST)16 SEP 2021

70' Messi draws a save from Mignolet! Tight angle for the Argentine, but Messi and Neymar have done much more in these last ten minutes.

01:56 (IST)16 SEP 2021

68' Eye-of-the-needle stuff from Messi to Neymar, but Jack Hendry does well to put the Brazilian off. PSG have amped it up a notch after the hour-mark.

01:55 (IST)16 SEP 2021

67' Nearly there again are Club Brugge!! De Keteleare with another piece of brilliance to give the ball to Lang, and the former Ajax man chips in with a dangerous ball. PSG scramble to clear their lines, and are quite lucky to win a goal-kick.

01:51 (IST)16 SEP 2021

63' PSG give the ball away again, and Club Brugge are at their throats. This is poor from the French - you can't have Messi and Neymar in your team and fail to give them any time on the ball.

01:49 (IST)16 SEP 2021

62' Yellow Card for Noah Lang.
This game has a visible edge to it now, and Lang seems overly eager to win the ball up the pitch.

01:48 (IST)16 SEP 2021

60' Free-kick for Club Brugge, after some excellent hold-up play from De Keteleare. The Belgians don't do much with it, but their passion tonight has been admirable.

01:46 (IST)16 SEP 2021

59' PSG clear their lines easily this time, and subsequently win a goal-kick. just over half an hour left in this game.

01:46 (IST)16 SEP 2021

58' Lang wins another corner! Intricate play by Club Brugge, and Lang's shot is blocked by Danilo.

01:45 (IST)16 SEP 2021

57' Not his best work, that, it's straight into Mignolet's hands. Marquinhos is down though, and this could be another source of concern for PSG.

01:44 (IST)16 SEP 2021

57' Messi's turning on the style again through the middle this time, and he's won a free-kick. A bit too much distance from goal though, and this should be more of a set-piece.

01:44 (IST)16 SEP 2021

56' Lionel Messi does brilliantly to beat his man (read: men) on the right wing and cuts in, but Draxler's eventual shot is blocked.

01:41 (IST)16 SEP 2021

53' Icardi, so close! Messi finds Neymar, and Neymar digs out an excellent pass for Icardi. His first touch lets him down, however, and the chance goes begging.

01:38 (IST)16 SEP 2021

51' Mauro Icardi comes on for Kylian Mbappe, who's picked up a worrying knock.

01:38 (IST)16 SEP 2021

50' Kylian Mbappe is struggling again, and he's signalled to the bench and he needs some time off. We aren't going to see any more of the trio tonight.

01:37 (IST)16 SEP 2021

49' Vanaken!! The midfielder gets into an excellent position to shoot, and it takes a crucial block to keep PSG safe. Abdou Diallo in the right place at the right time.

01:35 (IST)16 SEP 2021

48' Club Brugge have started this half well, and manage to win a corner off Keylor Navas. Dangerous times for PSG.

01:33 (IST)16 SEP 2021

46' Changes for PSG, Julian Draxler in for Georginio Wijnaldum and Danilo in for Leandro Paredes.

01:33 (IST)16 SEP 2021

PSG attacking from left to right.

01:32 (IST)16 SEP 2021

Right, so we're back in Bruges for the second half. Something needs to change for PSG - can they restore their lead tonight?

01:26 (IST)16 SEP 2021

Messi and Mbappe have linked up well, but there seems to be a lack of coherence in PSG's play at the moment. Lionel Messi did step up with a stunning moment of magic, but Neymar has been uncharacteristically quiet tonight. Plenty of time left in this game, and Club Brugge face a daunting challenge on the other side of this interval.

01:19 (IST)16 SEP 2021

PSG got the first goal of the game with Ander Herrera scoring an excellent volley but Club Brugge were ready with their response, and what a response it was. Vanaken stepped up with an excellent finish, and PSG seemed decidedly uncomfortable after the equalizer.

01:18 (IST)16 SEP 2021

Who could've seen that coming? PSG were second-best for large parts of that half, and Club Brugge have worn their hearts on their sleeves. Sowah, Vanaken, and De Keteleare have been brilliant tonight and they'll need to put in a similar effort in the second half.

01:17 (IST)16 SEP 2021

HALF-TIME: Club Brugge 1-1 PSG

01:17 (IST)16 SEP 2021

45 + 1' Neymar is bullied off the ball by Vanaken, and Flanders is absolutely thrilled with this half.

01:16 (IST)16 SEP 2021

Just one minute of added time..

01:15 (IST)16 SEP 2021

44' Straight into Navas' hands, but his attempted counter goes straight into the referee. PSG's ball.
