Pavel Marin (born 14 June 1995) is an Estonian professional footballer who plays as an attacking midfielder for Estonian club Nõmme Kalju and the Estonia national team.
Marin first played for a local club Keila, before moving to SC Real in 2007. He made his senior league debut in 2011, playing for Esiliiga team Puuma.
In July 2013, Marin moved to Levadia's reserve team Levadia II. He signed his first professional contract with the club in December 2013. Marin made his debut for Levadia's first team on 25 February 2014, in an Estonian Supercup match against Flora, as the team lost 0–1. He made his debut in the Meistriliiga on 15 March 2014, and scored in an 8–0 away win over Tallinna Kalev. Marin won his first Meistriliiga title in the 2014 season.
On 3 August 2018, Marin joined Ykkönen club KPV on loan until the end of the season.
On December 10th 2020, as somewhat of a surprise for the fans, Marin joined Premium Liiga side Viljandi Tulevik, stating he had numerous other offers from Estonia and abroad but took the offer because he was seen as a key player in the team by the manager Sander Post.He scored his first goal for the club in the second round of Premium Liiga already in a 2:1 away win against Paide Linnameeskond and quickly became an irreplaceable player and top scorer for the team. In October 2020 he received a call-up to the Estonian national team as a first active player from the again-independent Tulevik. He then went on to make the club's history in other aspects as well: he was in a starting eleven in the match against Lithuania in a friendly game and scored Estonia's only goal in a 1:3 loss. In the end Marin played in all three matches in that particular national team break.
Marin made his senior international debut for Estonia on 29 May 2016, in a 0–2 loss to Lithuania at the 2016 Baltic Cup. He scored his first international goal on 22 November 2016, in a 1–0 away win over Antigua and Barbuda in a friendly.
