After the defeat of PSG this Saturday against Lille (1-0) in the shock of the 31st day of Ligue 1, Marquinhos believes that his team can no longer find excuses and must quickly recover to succeed in their quarter-final first leg of the Champions League.
“It’s disappointing. Every time we lose, we say the same thing …” Asked at the microphone of Canal +, Marquinhos did not hide his bitterness after the defeat of PSG this Saturday against Lille (1-0) , as part of the 31st day of Ligue 1. A result synonymous with first place for the Mastiffs. And a big disappointment for the Parisians, pushed back to three points from the top of the standings and out of ideas four days before their Champions League quarter-final first leg against Bayern Munich (on RMC Sport).

It was not in our habits. that we take it back in hand, “said Marquinhos.
Domineering but apathetic offensively, Paris was surprised by a much more disciplined and united Lille formation. Jonathan David took advantage of the opponent’s lack of control to score the only goal of the game (20th).
“We are coming to an important moment in the season, we have to get into better conditions as quickly as possible. This is our negative point this season, we have ups and downs, above all we need more consistency, which is ‘We have had the last few seasons. We must not throw everything in the air, important things are happening, we can still do great things. We have to focus on the positive and what we can improve for the next game , one of the most important of the season for us. You have to be 100% “, hammered Marquinhos.
At the Parc des Princes, certain elements were particularly disappointing such as Thilo Kehrer, symbol of Parisian defensive shortcomings, and Neymar, excluded at the end of the match after a quarrel with Tiago Djalo.
