After a fairly tepid opening 15 minutes in Germany, both sides later went close to breaking the deadlock. Kevin De Bruyne and Jack Grealish have missed the target for Manchester City, either side of a top save from Zack Steffen to deny Leipzig’s Andre Silva.

GOAL – 24′ – Dominik Szoboszlai has punished City for not taking those chances.

Steffen saved City from going further behind, this time denying Emil Forsberg. The American has saved again from Silva and is keeping City at half-time.

City have laced attacking cohesion in this game – it hasn’t been a good night for Jack Grealish as a ‘false nine’ and Kevin De Bruyne is off the pace after a recent layoff.

GOAL – 2′ – Kylian Mbappe needed only 70 seconds to put PSG 1-0 up.

GOAL – 7′ – Mbappe doubled his tally and PSG’s lead. It could be a long night for Brugge.

GOAL – 38′ – Lionel Messi has extended the lead further. That’s only his fourth for the club.

Club Brugge have been much improved since half-time and have even tested Gianluigi Donnarumma in the PSG goal. It was a warning sign.

GOAL – 68′ – Mats Rits got a goal back for Brugge.
