Tau In Line For Mbappe, Silva, Di Maria Battle

Percy Tau is fit and back in contention as his side welcome Kylian Mbappe and Co. into town for tonight’s big game in the UEFA Champions League… 

Take a look at Tau's star-studded showing v Madrid in the gallery above!

The 25-year-old Bafana Bafana attacker was forced to sit out South Africa’s 2-1 win over Mali earlier in the month due to injury, and on his return was only deemed fit enough for a second half appearance in the 1-0 win over Royal Excel Mouscron.

Now though, with Paris Saint-Germain having made the trip to Belgium for the third round of group stage fixtures, Tau has been named in the matchday squad and will be hoping to secure his second start in this year’s UCL tournament following his performance against Real Madrid as he grabbed an assist in the 2-2 draw. 

The former Mamelodi Sundowns star is enjoying a solid start to life in Brugge with three goals and five assists in 13 games in all competitions, and he has at least one goal contribution in all four of the tournaments that he’s played in (Pro League, UCL qualifiers, UCL and Beker van Belgie).

PSG have named a strong squad with the likes of Mbappe, Thiago Silva, Angle di Maria, Edison Cavani and Marco Verratti all in line to start at Jan Breydel Stadium, while Neymar is still out with an injury. 

Do you think Tau can grab his first UCL goal this evening in Brugge?
