Marquinhos: ‘A great challenge’

The Paris Saint-Germain captain gave us his thoughts after the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 draw pitted the Parisians against Barcelona.

“It’s a big match to play in, a great challenge. They’re great opponents. We’re expecting a big battle, and we’ll have to be ready for it. We watched the draw, there weren’t many opponents left in the hat, we were ready for any opponent that came up. We’re all motivated, we all said that we have to prepare for it well. There’s a great history between the two clubs in the Champions League, both good and bad memories for us. Our team has changed a lot, we’re more mature, and the context will be different. Neymar hurt us back then, now he’s with us. He’s really looking forward to playing this game and to help us win it.”
