They have collected two points from their first two Group A fixtures, playing to a goalless stalemate at home with Galatasaray in their opener before putting Los Blancos on the brink of a surprise home defeat in an enthralling 2-2 draw at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Brugge were leading 2-0 at half-time in that match, with Percy Tau providing the assist for the opener, but Los Blancos rallied back to salvage a point on their home turf.

PSG, meanwhile, have won both their two opening fixtures in this season's competition, thrashing Real 3-0 before collecting a 1-0 victory in Turkey.

Les Parisiens boss Thomas Tuchel and his men, who will be without the injured Neymar, have lost just twice across all competitions in the 2019/20 campaign so far, winning their other 11 games.

PSG faced Belgian opposition in the 2017/18 UCL group stage, beating Anderlecht 4-0 away from home and 5-0 at the Parc des Princes. The two victories made it eight games without defeat against Belgian clubs, with their last loss to one dating back to the 1982/83 campaign.

Here is how the teams will line up:

Club Brugge: Mignolet; Mata, Mechele, Deli, Sobol; De Ketelaere, Rits, Vanaken; Diatta, Bonaventure, Tau.

Paris Saint-Germain: Navas; Meunier, Thiago Silva, Kimpembe, Bernat; Verratti, Marquinhos, Ander Herrera; Choupo-Moting, Icardi, Di María.
