LIGUE 1 - Marquinhos on PSG title race: "no added pressure"
PSG acquired Messi as a free agent from Barcelona to create a dangerous offensive three with Kylian Mbappe of France and Neymar of Brazil, but they have yet to demonstrate what they are capable of as a unit.
Since Messi signed his two-year deal in the summer, when former Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos and Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum also came, captain Marquinhos stated there was "no extra pressure" to win the Champions League.
"We live with the pressure every season, especially when you play for PSG. This is part and parcel of it," the Brazilian said.
"With the squad we have, people are going to talk about that even more. We are delighted to have such players with us but there's no extra pressure, there's only positives to take."
