Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe both scored twice as Paris Saint-Germain ended the Champions League group stages in emphatic fashion.

While Brugge had managed to keep PSG at bay in the opening matchday, they could do little to stop Mbappe from opening the scoring inside two minutes.

Visiting goalkeeper Simon Mignolet clumsily punched Nuno Mendes’s cross into the path of Mbappe who fired home after two minutes and the striker was at it again five minutes later when he volleyed past the Belgian from Angel Di Maria’s pass.

Mbappe is the youngest player to reach 30 goals in the Champions League, less than two weeks before his 23rd birthday.

Messi added the third seven minutes before halftime with a trademark curled attempt from outside the area and although Mats Rits pulled one back in the 68th, PSG were always in control.

Messi wrapped up a comfortable victory with a 76th-minute spot kick after being brought down by substitute Ignace Van der Brempt.

Would have expected him to take that.

Mbappe off

GOAL PSG 3-1 Club Brugge | Mats Rits ‘68

19:12 , Jonathan Gorrie

68:00 - Rits claws one back after Lang breaks the entire PSG defence.

Afforded far too much space.

CHANCE FOR PSG

19:07 , Jonathan Gorrie

64:00 - Di Maria attempts a toe-poke after a mazy run.

Very close to an audacious goal.

PSG taking the sting out of the game

19:02 , Jonathan Gorrie

58:00 - PSG are looking to break the game up now.

They’ve come through some early Brugge pressure unscathed and, surely, will see this out.

CHANCE FOR CLUB BRUGGE

18:56 , Jonathan Gorrie

53:00 - Donnarumma saves well from Lang.

All Brugge since play resumed.

CHANCE FOR CLUB BRUGGE

18:53 , Jonathan Gorrie

50:00 - Ritz can’t direct his header goalwards but, as much as PSG might be sitting off, Club Brugge have already caused more problems in this first five minutes of the second-half than they did at all before the interval.

Early problem for PSG

18:51 , Jonathan Gorrie

48:00 - Nuno Mendes coming off injured for Kehrer.

Half-time: PSG 3-0 Club Brugge

18:34 , Jonathan Gorrie

Clinical from PSG so far.

Long 45 ahead for Club Brugge.

18:31 , Jonathan Gorrie

PSG have been brilliant

18:29 , Jonathan Gorrie

41:00 - Stunning stuff from PSG so far.

They could end up racking up the goals tonight. Di Maria, Messi and Mbappe have been slick and classy all night.

Who needs Neymar?!

GOAL: PSG 3-0 Club Brugge | Lionel Messi ‘37

18:25 , Jonathan Gorrie

37:00 - Messi curls one into the top corner from around 25-yards out.

Vintage stuff.

CHANCE FOR CLUB BRUGGE

36:00 - Excellent save from Donnarumma to deny Rits.

CHANCE FOR PSG

18:21 , Jonathan Gorrie

34:00 - Messi somehow gets his shot off despite being surrounded by defenders in the box.

Good save from Mignolet.

Messi’s first glimpse

18:17 , Jonathan Gorrie

30:00 - Messi, in terms of shooting, has been fairly quiet tonight.

His first was blocked by N’Soki but the way in which he glided into the box was typically brilliant.

CHANCE FOR PSG

18:15 , Jonathan Gorrie

28:00 - PSG are causing problems time and time again.

Wijnaldum was put clean through by Di Maria and the Dutchman really should have made it three, although he lost control of the ball at the final moment.

As things stand:

18:13 , Jonathan Gorrie

Brugge now NEED to win after that goal in Germany.

That should open up some gaps for PSG.

Leipzig ahead at home to City!

CHANCE FOR CLUB BRUGGE

18:10 , Jonathan Gorrie

24:00 - Donnarumma called into action by Sandra but the Italian saves a shot from inside the box with his feet.

The game settles

18:07 , Jonathan Gorrie

20:00 - It’s barely been a contest so far.

PSG can just pop the ball around with ease now and rely on their ridiculous array of attackers to pick holes in the Club Brugge defence.

Exhibition football.

A record-breaking night for Mbappe

18:03 , Jonathan Gorrie

CHANCE FOR PSG

18:02 , Jonathan Gorrie

16:00 - PSG are in the mood.

Gueye has just tried a scissor kick, which tells you all you need to know about the game so far!

Is history repeating itself?

17:58 , Jonathan Gorrie

PSG look like a team reborn

17:58 , Jonathan Gorrie

12:00 - Granted, the level of the opposition must be taken into account but this PSG team are full of intensity and drive tonight.

Play like this all of the time and you’d have to back them as tournament winners.

GOAL: PSG 2-0 Club Brugge | Kylian Mbappe

17:54 , Jonathan Gorrie

07:00 - Mbappe hits a lovely finish after a brilliant pass from Di Maria.

PSG look sharp

17:52 , Jonathan Gorrie

06:00 - PSG are in full control here.

Still, you feel the problem with them is rarely taking leads in games. It’s keeping up the intensity throughout.

GOAL: PSG 1-0 Club Brugge | Kylian Mbappe ‘2

17:49 , Jonathan Gorrie

02:00 - Mbappe volleys inside the box after a Nuno Mendes cross.

A long night for the visitors ahead.

Kick-off!

17:46 , Jonathan Gorrie

0:00 - We’re off and running in the French capital.

PSG so far

17:39 , Jonathan Gorrie

It’d be fair to say PSG have underwhelmed this season.

Quite how a front three consisting of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi can match up with the intense demands of modern elite football remains to be seen.

Indeed, Mauricio Pochettino has not looked totally happy with his lot in the French capital to say the least.

Daunting omens for Club Brugge

Prediction

16:26 , Jonathan Gorrie

Brugge caused PSG problems in the reverse fixture, which ended in a 1-1 draw, but whether they will be able to replicate that showing on the road in Paris remains to be seen.

PSG to win 3-1.

Early team news

16:16 , Jonathan Gorrie

PSG remain without Neymar after the Brazilian suffered a serious ankle injury last week, while Lionel Messi could be rested, with nothing on the line.

Ruben Providence is a doubt for the visitors because of an ankle problem of his own but otherwise the Belgians are expected to name a full-strength side as they chase third place.
