Sun 25 April 2021 | 9:38

With a 3-1 victory over Metz on Saturday, PSG returned to the top of Ligue 1 thanks to a brace by Kylian Mbappe and a goal from Mauro Icardi.

Acknowledging the expectations from the reigning French champions in their domestic fixtures, Verratti embraces that extra pressure heading into the final weeks of the season.

"We are somewhat obliged to win. We have a plan which is to win the most matches possible," Verratti told

RMC Sport

. "The others will play and will make their way. We will see who comes first."

The Italian midfielder added: "It's an incredible championship, one of the prettiest. There are still four teams that can win the title, that's why we can't make any mistakes. Today we played a serious game, we won and we deserved it. We are happy."

PSG are now two points clear of Lille, who’ll have an extra game to play, at top of the table.

PSG will turn their attention back to the Champions League this week as they’ll face Manchester City on Wednesday.
