As part of one of the matches of the 6th round of the Champions League group stage, PSG and Brugge will fight face-to-face in a face-to-face meeting. On whose side will the victory be in this meeting. Our sports portal gives a forecast for this match.
The Parisian team started in the group stage of the LCH extremely unsuccessfully. In the match with Bruges, Parisians were considered clear favorites of the game, but they did not justify this status, having painted a world 1:1 with an opponent. However, in the next two games, the "blue-garnet" showed their class. They didn't give Manchester City a chance, after which they defeated Leipzig in Paris. These two meetings were key in the fight for a place in the playoffs, given the fact that Leipzig and Brugge lost points alternately in games with Manchester City. The return game with the Bulls was not easy, and ended in a productive draw. And in the last match, PSG completely lost to Manchester City, playing away. This result left the "blue-garnet" in second place, but guaranteed the playoffs in the next European Cup spring.
Before the start of the Champions League group stage, the Brugge players were considered a clear outsider of their group, but already in the first round, Clement's team showed that he was able to question this status. On their own field, the "black and blue" took points from PSG, having painted a world war with the French (1:1), and at times even surpassed the opponent in moments and movement. The victory over Leipzig away in the second round made Brugge a contender for a ticket to the playoffs, but in the matches with Manchester City everything fell into place. The townspeople defeated the opponent with the results 4:1 and 5:1, which effectively deprived them of the chance to exit the group. Well, then Leipzig took up the case, which smeared the opponent in Belgium – 5:0. Now, having lost the chance to reach the LCH playoffs, Brugge may be left without the Europa League playoffs altogether.
