Club Brugge are quietly confident of causing Manchester City problems in their Champions League Group A clash on Tuesday, but their manager has warned the Blues will pose them a different threat than Paris Saint-Germain did.

Brugge shocked PSG in the opening round of fixtures by taking a point from Mauricio Pochettino's side at the Jan Breydel Stadium, before beating RB Leipzig away in their next game to move into second in the group.

City, third after victory over Leipzig and defeat against Paris, are looking to kick-start their group campaign away against Brugge this week, but the home manager Philippe Clement has warned them that they are capable of causing problems and taking their chances.

"In Leipzig, we proved that we can do a big result, because we were good with and without the ball," he said.

"We think we can do the same against Manchester City, if the whole team is playing at their level. I know we won't have 20 chances in this game, so we will have to be efficient."

For all Clement's cautious optimism, though, he also sent a warning to his own side that City will represent a tougher task than both of their previous Champions League opponents.

"We are realistic," he continued. "For me, Manchester City and Bayern Munich are the two best teams in the world. It is great for us that we can take on this challenge. And we will do so fully.

"What is nice is that more and more people believe that we can pick up something after we have already performed well at this level. But again, for me this is Manchester City one step higher than PSG and RB Leipzig. Anything is possible and everyone is incredibly excited to be there going for it, but we have to be realistic."

Clement also heaped praise on Pep Guardiola, saying he hopes to spend some time with the City boss after going head to head with his counterpart.

He said: "The way he always wants to attack, with a lot of movements, I'm a fan. Am I going to talk to him after the meeting? I don't know but I would like to meet him one day to chat with him and see how he works.

"If I can talk to him this Tuesday, it will be with a lot of respect. There is respect between the coaches in the Champions League, we should there think in Belgium."

Also previewing the clash was highly-rated Belgium international Charles De Ketelaere, who scored his first international goal in the October international break from a Kevin De Bruyne assist.

"Everything is possible, but then everyone will have to be at their best level, otherwise you won't get points," he said.

"If we believe in it, play our own game and try to counter their strengths, then everything can happen. Within the group there is a realization that we can pick up something on Tuesday, but only if everyone is at a level. As a team we can always do a little more at the big moments, we have proven that several times in the past two years.

"They will certainly not underestimate us. For me Kevin is an example, because he is one of the best players in the world. Everyone has their own style, but I do try to implement some elements from his game in myself. What exactly? His shot, his bipedality and the ease with which he puts the balls wherever he wants. That is very beautiful to watch."
