Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting returns to PSG

Indeed, Robert Lewandowski is injured and the Cameroonian is an option to animate the front of the attack.

One or two have written to me: ‘Hey, we’re going to meet again!’ or ‘Be ready! ”. Just for fun, I wrote back, ‘Be ready too!’ It’s a special story and I’m really looking forward to it.”
Bayern Munich striker to start?
The Bayern Munich striker took the opportunity to deliver his feelings on the upcoming match. “Obviously, you have to be more than vigilant against Kylian Mbappe and Neymar, but also against the other players, not only against those two. Of course, they are more under the spotlight, they are the superstars of the team, but there are so many good players next to them that we will have to watch,” estimated Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting. They are a team full of stars, but it is exactly the same for us. PSG is usually confident and wants to beat all their opponents, but it’s exactly the same for Bayern. It’s not only individual qualities that count. It’s not just individual qualities that count but also what we are able to do together as a team, and that’s Bayern‘s strength.”
