PSG Thrash Club Brugge In Champions League

Kylian Mbappe ran riot off the bench against Percy Tau's Club Brugge on Tuesday night, breaking a UEFA Champions League set by Lionel Messi along the way.

The Belgians were 10/1 outsiders for a win at Real Madrid but stunned the rest of Europe by racing into a 2-0 lead against Zinedine Zidane's side by half-time.

The France forward was introduced from the bench seven minutes into the second half and helped put the game out of Brugge's reach with a devastating display that also included an assist.

"I have to fight to keep my place". It was very long without them, but the others took the opportunity. Suspended skipper Ruud Vormer will be a big loss but Colombian Eder Balanta returns from a hamstring injury.

Pep Guardiola has said his Manchester City team make too many mistakes to be considered Champions League contenders. But sometimes you have injuries, you have problems, you have a smell from the team and you have to do it.

The Paris Saint-Germain superstar entered the game at the Jan Breydelstadion in the 52nd minute when he came on to replace Eric Choupo-Moting. "But it's still too much for Kylian to play 90 minutes, we have to decide if he starts or ends the game".

Mbappé returned to action against Nice last Friday, scoring as a substitute in the 4-1 win following three weeks out with a thigh strain.

If they fail to make the starting line-up it will give Brugge hope, even though the likes of Mauro Icardi and Angel Di Maria have stepped up to the plate in their absence.

With home advantage and PSG without their top men, I like the look of Club Brugge in the double chance market, which also pays out on a draw, at 79/50 with Marathonbet.

Witnesses cited by public broadcaster NRK said police shot at the tires of the ambulance and the driver fired back. The man left the scene on foot and pointed a weapon at police officers before stealing the ambulance .

Overall, Mbappe has now scored 17 goals in 27 Champions League appearances.

Mauro Icardi put PSG into a seventh minute lead but it was only after World Cup victor Mbappe, working his way back after a hamstring injury, came on early in the second half that they clicked into gear.

On both occasions it was the pace of the 20-year-old in carving his way past the Brugge defence and his deft finishing that underlined his prowess.

As unlikely as it may seem for a team that have already played Real Madrid and faced an intimidating atmosphere away at Galatasaray, this may prove to be PSG's most hard match in Group A so far.
