Paris Saint-Germain host Club Brugge in UEFA Champions League Group A on Paramount+ Tuesday with nothing to play for after their 2-1 away loss at Manchester City last time out confirmed second spot for them going into the knockout phase. The Belgians can still secure UEFA Europa League soccer, but RB Leipzig lead the charge for that and the Germans host City in what will be the first match without Jesse Marsch at the helm. If nothing else, PSG can work on their spotty structure and chemistry in what amounts to a semi-competitive friendly for them against motivated visitors.
Here is how you can watch the match and what to know:
- Date: Tuesday, Dec. 7 | Time: 12:45 p.m. (noon) ET
- Location: Parc des Princes — Paris, France
- Live stream: Paramount+
- Odds: PSG -333; Draw +480; Brugge +850 (via Caesars Sportsbook)
Featured Game | PSG vs. Club Brugge
PSG: Sergio Ramos is out once more. Ander Herrera returned to training on Sunday while Presnel Kimpembe and Colin Dagba are doubtful. Julian Draxler and Neymar are out for the rest of the year.
Brugge: Ruben Providence is out with an ankle injury.
PSG: A 1-1 draw away at RC Lens laid bare Les Parisiens’ struggles under Mauricio Pochettino once more and the team seems no closer to resolving those issues which date back months at this point. With AS Monaco coming up in Ligue 1 this weekend, it could be a tricky period for the Argentine if his team continue to play in low gear.
Brugge: Third in the Belgian topflight with three wins from their last five, Philippe Clement’s men need a victory to stand any chance of lifting themselves off bottom in Champions League Group A. A strong start which saw them draw with PSG and then beat Leipzig has disappeared after three heavy losses to the tune of 14 goals conceded for just two scored. If RBL somehow beat City, then even a success at Parc des Princes might not be enough.
The hosts to once again do just about enough to scrape the win without excelling. Whatever the result, the French giants have major work to do ahead of the knockout phase. Pick: PSG 1-0 Brugge.
