While Thomas Tuchel's side's failures in the competition, with three consecutive last-16 exits, are well documented, the current squad appears to have eradicated the superstar mentality of previous campaigns.

But they come up against Philippe Clement's side who nearly shocked the 13-time European champions on their own turf after a first-half brace from Nigeria striker Emmanuel Bonaventure.

Despite falling to a 2-2 draw eventually, the Belgian league leaders displayed fearlessness in their approach that will have PSG on alert this evening.

With a 17-game unbeaten streak across all competitions this season, Brugge will fancy their chances and the return to fitness of Percy Tau provides a huge boost for Clement - who is missing captain Ruud Vormer.

The Dutchman misses the game through suspension following his red card against Real last time out which.

Confirmed line-ups:

Brugge XI: Mignolet; Mata, Mechele, Odilon, Deli; Diatta, Rits, Vanaken, Sobol, Bonaventure, Tau.

Subs: Openda, Okereke, Sagna, Balanta, Cools, Kossounou, Horvath.

PSG XI: Navas; Meunier, Thiago Silva, Kimpembe, Bernat; Verratti, Marquinhos, Herrera; Choupo-Moting, Icardi, Di María.

Subs: Mbappe, Paredes, Cavani, Rico, Sarabia, Diallo, Dagba.
