Paris Saint Germain with its world’s most feared formidable trio of Messi, Mbappé, and Neymar in Football has surprised fans by making draws in Club Brugge KV from Belgium in the opener of UEFA Champions League opener.
With a lot of expectations from the PSG fans and football supporters all over the world, the two teams ended making draws on 1-1.
Moreover, PSG’s center-back Sergio Ramos's debut has again been delayed as the Spaniard has not fully recovered from a thigh injury.
Messi hit the crossbar during his 150th appearance in the competition but could not score for his new club after PSG coach Mauricio Pochettino sent out his three superstars altogether for the first time.
Messi had previously made only one substitute appearance for PSG in a 2-0 win against Reims FC last month.
PSG imposed a fast tempo and monopolized possession from the start as the Club Brugge KV struggled to string passes together in the early stages. But the Belgian champions gradually got into the match and enjoyed several good spells of pressure while PSG lacked cohesion and gave the ball away too often in midfield.
