PSG held by Club Brugge in Champions League

Lionel Messi’s Paris-St Germain side finished with a 1-all draw against Club Brugge in the Champions League this morning.

The Argentina star’s start for the side proved a frustrating evening after the draw.

Messi struck the crossbar but struggled to make a serious impact on his full debut and it was instead Ander Herrera who netted the opener after great work down the left from Kylian Mbappe.

Hans Vanaken scored a deserved equaliser before the break to get the 29,000-seater Jan Breydel Stadium rocking.

Messi was carded for a second-half foul and Mbappe replaced after 51 minutes as PSG found it difficult to break down the energetic hosts, who may feel they could have won the game themselves.

PSG struggled to deal with the home side’s aggressive pressing throughout and needed goalkeeper Keylor Navas to tip Charles de Ketelaere’s well-struck effort over the crossbar to keep them level.

Messi began to find more space as the Belgian side tired late on but the 34-year-old was unable to unpick the Brugge defence, leaving boss Mauricio Pochettino to ponder how to get the best out of his all-star front three.

In other matches, Man City defeated RB Leipzig 6-3, Besiktas lost 1-2 to B Dortmund, Sheriff Tiraspol beat Shakhtar Donetsk 2-0, Liverpool beat AC Milan 3-2.
