UCL Draw: Tau's Road To Group Stage Revealed

The draw for the 2019/20 Uefa Champions League play-offs took place in Nyon, Switzerland, today, and Percy Tau's new team Club Brugge found out who they will face in their mission to qualify for the competition's group stage.

Click through the mini-gallery above to see some images from Tau's brilliant debut for Brugge.

Tau, who scored on his Brugge debut on the weekend, joined the Belgian club on loan from Brighton & Hove Albion last week.

The Bafana Bafana star was immediately selected for the starting XI just days after joining his new side, and was on the scoresheet in his new club's 6-0 rout of Sint-Truiden.

On Tuesday, though, Tau and Brugge will face a trickier task as they go up against Ukrainian giants Dynamo Kyiv in the third qualifying round for this season's UCL group stage.
