Club Brugge vs Man City

Manchester City are back in Champions League action shortly, facing off with Belgian outfit Club Brugge at 5:45 pm UK time.

The Sky Blues head into the game having fallen to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of PSG in their last European outing.

Man City actually played pretty well against Lionel Messi and co., but as they came away with a loss, they now really need to ensure they pick up a win on Tuesday as Club Brugge are currently sat 2nd in Group A after winning one and drawing one of their opening two Champions League games.
