But how did they fare? Not too good. 

Okereke and Bonaventure had some chances to hurt Paris Saint-Germain in matchday four of the 2019/2020 Champions League but could not make good use of them. 

Okereke had the first chance of the game after Paris Saint-German were caught out trying to pass the ball out of defence. It was intercepted and passed to Nigerian striker who was free in the box but his left-foot curler on a turn went wide. 

Next Club Brugge chance came in the 27th minute when Bonaventure flashed a shot across goal that troubled PSG goalkeeper Keylor Navas

A minute later, Okereke pushed Kimpembe off the ball but his deflected effort was flew by the goal.

In the 50th minute, the two Nigerian forwards combined albeit accidentally. A Bonaventure effort from outside the box came off Okereke which forced Navas to a sharp save. Okereke followed up but his effort was blocked by the Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper.
