Tonight at 9 pm: PSG - Club Brugge

Club Brugge awaits a difficult job with the away game against PSG tonight. Here's what you need to know.

Éder Balanta has been top notch in the past few weeks. The 26-year-old Colombian midfielder is experienced in the Champions League from his time at FC Basel. Bonus points for Balanta: he is very versatile. He started his career as a central defender, but played as a defensive midfielder in the previous years. He can play his 25th European match against PSG tonight.

Kylian Mbappé demonstrated his exceptional class during the last game at Jan Breydel. He completed a second-half hat-trick as a substitute and gave the decisive pass for Icardi's second goal. He's also a key player for the French national team. Mbappé comes from the renowed youth academy of AS Monaco and is now playing his third season with PSG.

Scotsman Bobby Madden has been appointed referee for the game tonight. He will be assisted by countrymen Graeme Stewart and David Roome. Nicholas Walsh is the fourth official. Stuart Attwell and Paul Tierney are the video assistant referees.

The blue and black awaits an extremely difficult task tonight against les Parisiens. A fortnight ago Club suffered a 0-5 defeat against PSG following an Icardi brace and a hat-trick by substitute Mbappé. Club Brugge tried to get something out of that game and, but failed to create clear-cut chances against the well-organized visitors. Tonight's game will without a doubt be very difficult. Club is still unbeaten in the Jupiler Pro League and travelled to France with confidence after the commanding 3-0 win against KV Kortrijk this weekend. For tonight's game, Philippe Clement can't rely on his captain Ruud Vormer as he is suspended.

Paris Saint-Germain entertain Club Brugge at the Parc des Princes tonight. The French champion tops Group A with nine points out of three games. Thomas Tuchel's side scored nine goals and have yet to concede their first goal. PSG lead the pack in Ligue 1 as well. Despite losing 2-1 against bottom of the league Dijon last weekend, PSG is still seven points ahead of Angers, where former Club Brugge goalkeeper Ludovic Butelle is between the sticks. Provided a victory against Club, PSG will qualify for the next round tonight. A draw suffies if Galatasaray doesn't beat Real Madrid. PSG is already sure of the first place in the group if it wins tonight while Real Madrid and Galatasaray share the spoils.
