PSG superstar signing, Lionel Messi, will make his hugely anticipated first appearance in the Champions League with the Parisian club after being included in the squad to face Club Brugge on Wednesday.

As quoted by Livescore, it remains to be seen if Messi will start against Brugge but he is in the travelling party for the trip to Belgium.

Messi is one of the most decorated players in Champions League history, having won the competition four times with Barca.

It he does play, it would represent a landmark 150th appearance for Messi in Europe’s premier competition, and first not playing for Los Cules.
