In a season that’s seen him face the likes of Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain, Percy Tau was back among the big boys on Thursday night, but how did the Bafana Bafana star do?
Check out Tau v Anthony Martial & Co. in the gallery above!
Tau, who is currently on loan with Club Brugge from Brighton & Hove Albion in England, has endured a tough 2020 so far having fallen down the pecking order in Belgium, however he was handed a starting berth by Philippe Clement against English Premier League giants, Manchester United, in the UEFA Europa League.
The Bafana man made his debut in UEFA competitions last year when he played for Club in their Champions League group stage campaign, however they were ultimately knocked out as Real and PSG progressed into the knockout stages.
Now, with the Belgians eager to show their mettle in the UEL, they managed to pull off a 1-1 draw against Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s men at Jan Breydel Stadium before the return leg at Old Trafford in a weeks’ time.
