Lionel Messi is set to make his debut in the UEFA Champions League with Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) after being included in the squad to face Club Brugge on Wednesday.

The Argentina superstar made a shock move to PSG on a free transfer in August after FC Barcelona could not meet La Liga’s financial requirements to offer him a new contract.

Messi has played only 24 minutes of football for PSG, coming on as a substitute in the 4-0 rout of Reims before the international break.

He is also a four-time winner of the UEFA Champions League, lifting the trophy three years in succession between 2016 and 2018.
