Club Brugge Preview – Can Brugge upset their visitors with a famous home win ?

Club Brugge continue to dominate domestically and their performances in Europe over recent years also mean they are now automatic qualifiers for the group stages of this year’s Champions League. Philippe Clement’s men performed admirably in their group last season finishing third but were agonisingly close to reach the knockout stages. A 2-2 draw in Rome away to Lazio on the final match day – when down to 10 men – proved to be their undoing in a game they needed to win.

Brugge won both games against Zenit in that section whilst drawing home and away to Lazio. 3-0 defeats in both matches against Borussia Dortmund was ultimately the difference between them playing in the Europa League rather than this competition after Christmas.

PSG win and Both teams to score
(odds taken 2000 GMT, Monday 13 September)

With RB Leipzig and Manchester City also in this group it looks like being a real challenge for the Belgian champions to finish in the top two positions this season. But they will want to be competitive in each of their games, starting with the visit of the Parisians.

Brugge have had a decent start to their domestic season and sit top of the table after seven games. They have dropped points in three of them, however, so you feel they have still to find their best form. Noa Lang has started strongly once again, he scored 16 in the league last season and has already notched three this term. The Dutch youngster was on target in the 3-0 win at home to Zenit in last year’s Champions League, too.

PSG Preview – Will PSG show their class and take the three points home with them?

PSG are regularly amongst the favourites for this competition but have yet to find their main success in the Champions League. Their closest attempt remains 2019/20 when making it all the way to the final only to lose to Bayern Munich. It was a semi-final exit last season when meekly losing to Manchester City over two legs.

This time around they are considered to be the front runners. The arrival of Leo Messi is the obvious headliner but Gianluigi Donnarumma, Achraf Hakimi, Sergio Ramos and Gini Wijnaldum have also came in over the summer. All of them have experience of winning at the top level including multiple Champions League wins.

Messi may yet not have really got going so far in a PSG shirt but the team have been strong in the early part of the season with a 100% record in Ligue 1. Five straight wins and scoring 16 goals in the process. Kylian Mbappe has been the star man so far with four goals.

Anything less than winning this competition will have to be a disappointment considering the quality this squad possesses so that brings pressure even now.

Club Brugge vs PSG Betting Advice

This is the second time in three seasons that the teams have been drawn together in the group stages of the Champions League. PSG were far too good back then, winning 5-0 at this venue as well as a 1-0 routine win at home. Brugge will know they are up against it again, especially as they are facing an even strong opponent this time around.

The encouragement for the home team is PSG continue to give up chances. They’ve conceded in three of their five matches this season and four of their last five away games in the Champions League.


Key Facts – Club Brugge vs PSG Betting Tip

  • Club Brugge finished third in their group last year, narrowly missing out on qualification on the final match day
  • PSG were beaten finalists in 2019/20 but eliminated at the semi-final stage last season
  • The teams were in the same section two seasons ago – PSG won both matches including 5-0 in Belgium


Brugge carry a threat themselves. Their last 15 home matches have seen 35 goals scored. This is clearly a different level of opposition but I’m taking them to get a goal in this one and both teams scoring.
