South African star Percy Tau made his group stage debut, creating an assist for Nigerian forward Emmanuel Bonaventure Dennis.
Dennis picked up his brace to amazingly give Brugge a 2-0 lead in the first half. However, the La Liga club fought back to draw the game 2-2 on the night.
We focus on the heroics of Club Brugges' forward Percy Tau. He pulled the heartstrings of South African fans in such a way that even Real Madrid fans were supporting Club Brugge during this game, at least for one night.
Bafana Bafana supporters united and were proud with the performance of Tau and his team. You can follow all the best reactions from social media here.

Percy Tau Assist and Brugge lead in Madrid. What a time to be alive 🎉 #UCL— Julia Stuart (@JuliaStuart_SA) October 1, 2019
We have seen Percy Tau beat the offside trap like that in the Premier League and in the CAF Champions League. He does it in the biggest stage of them all, the UEFA Champions League, to provide an assist. Hail The Lion of Judah!!— A Dog That Bites (@SkepeMatsebane) October 1, 2019
Percy Tau became too good for Brighton without ever representing them. They should've fought harder for his work permit.— Tyson Creme 🇫🇷 (@TysonCreme) October 1, 2019

Percy Tau still has to score and make another assist this will end in 4-0 #RMCLU— Astrx (@AstroXIX) October 1, 2019
One of the big winners in this Real Madrid vs Club Brugge game is VAR. How many times have we seen @RealMadrid get the rub of the green in the UCL? Well, what a difference a correct decision makes! It has spurred @ClubBrugge to do further damage in the Champions League #rmaclu— Ignat Football (@IgnatFootball) October 1, 2019

PERCY TAU: loaned out by BH&A, now playing in the Champions league, which he wouldn’t have done had he been eligible in England— Wendel Bloem (@WendelBloem1) October 1, 2019
