This is the first time that Lionel Messi has played on Belgian soil.

Lhe Club Brugge begins its European season this Wednesday evening in Group A of the Champions League. A fanfare start for the people of Bruges who welcome Paris Saint-Germain and its stars.

For the first time since the arrival of Lionel Messi, Mauricio Pochettino will be able to associate the six-fold Ballon d’Or with Neymar and Kylian Mbappé.

Brugge has been poured into a very strong group, with also Manchester City and Leipzig, who face each other at the same time. Last year, the Bruges residents managed to finish third in a group with Borussia Dortmund, Lazio and Zenit Saint Petersburg, being transferred to the Europa League. Third place – which this year gives access to a play-off against a club ranked second in its group in the Europa League to then reach the round of 16 of this competition – will again be the goal of the Blauw-Zwart.

The composition of PSG: Navas, Hakimi, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Diallo, Herrera, Paredes, Wijnaldum, Neymar, Mbappé, Messi

La compo du FC Bruges: Mignolet, Mata, Hendry, Nsoki, Sobol, Balanta, Rits, Vanaken, Sowah, Lang, De Ketelaerre
