Why haven’t PSG been able to win?

It has been hard for PSG to get past the knock-out rounds and finals. Why? The simple answer for that is that they don’t have the experience of playing under pressure. PSG is one of the most successful teams in Ligue 1 and has a habit of winning many games without facing too much pressure.

Can PSG have a better chance at winning this year?

With Messi’s entrance to PSG, many wonder if he can help PSG make it to the further stages and possibly win the trophy. My opinion is yes, they may go further in the stages especially because Messi has helped PSG in his performance, but if he had more experience with PSG it would help because knowing how to adapt to other players’ techniques and style is necessary to make good plays. Messi states, “My goal and dream is to raise another Champion’s(League Trophy) and I believe that I am in the right place to have the best ch-
