UEFA Champions League
Asian Handicap
Pick: AH -1,50 PSG
Odds: 1.81
Stake: 1

Match date: 15/09/2021

In the 1st round of Group A of the Champions League, Belgian Club Brugge welcomes Paris Saint Germain from 9 pm CET. It is a duel of outsiders and, according to many, the main candidate for the title of European champion this season. The trio Messi - Mbappe - Neymar is expected to play in the attack of PSG for the first time this season.

Belgian club has won just two of their last 12 matches in Europe’s elite competition. Last season in the group stage, they won two, drew two and lost two of their six matches. Club Brugge is leading the Belgian championship with 14 points from seven games, but may be worried about the recent 1:6 defeat against Gent.

Sure, the hosts are waiting for a tough job against the Parisians tonight, and coach Phillipe Clement will fill the midfield in a 3-5-2 system to try to keep the visitors' attacks at their start.

We might see Sowah, Rits, Vanaken, Balanta and Sobol in the midfield, but Balanta might still be replaced by Wormer, since he suffered a mild injury against Oostende on Friday. It would definitely be a wise decision to go with two defensive midfielders, with great running ability.

By bringing Lionel Messi, PSG has made it clear that it wants to win the Champions League trophy this season, the only one it has been missing since being the ruler of French football, and coach Mauricio Pochettino's team has a 100% point efect in the French Championship (15 in 5 rounds).

Messi didn't play most of those games, but the strongest team from Paris is starting tonight, even though they are missing three players. With Verratti injured and Gueye and Di Maria suspended, PSG coach will draft in two of Ander Herrera, Danilo Pereira and Leandro Paredes in 4-3-3 formation.

- We think that all the players can be compatible, that we can create a really good group to work with. A group in which respect is the keyword. We have a group in which most of the players deserve to be starters, but unfortunately only 11 can start. And those who don't play will have to support the team and work in order to play the next game and show that they also have the level to compete - said PSG coach Pochettino.

In October 2019, Paris SG visited Brugge and won 5:0. Maybe tonight will not be such a convincing victory, but at least two goals difference for the guests should be because when Messi, Neymar and Mbappe play together and when their motive is on maximum, no one team can stop it...
