Messi will look to add to his goals tally in the UEFA Champions League this season having scored three in five games.

PSG are aware that a win on matchday six of the UEFA Champions League too wouldn't help them topple Manchester City, who occupy the pole position in Group A. The Parisians take on Club Brugge at the Parc des Princes on Tuesday.

After the 2-1 defeat at Manchester City in the penultimate matchday in the group stage and already having secured a place in the last 16, the French outfit will look to extend their 12-game unbeaten run at home in all competitions.

A defeat for the Belgians will mean an exit from the Europa League as well, irrespective of what transpires between RB Leipzig and Manchester City as the Germans - though level on points with Club Brugge - have a better goal difference.

The last meeting between Club Brugge and PSG ended in a 1-1 draw, and it must be noted that the French side are without a win in their last two Ligue 1 encounters.

Here's how to watch PSG vs Club Brugge in the 2021-22 Champions League from India.
