Knee injury, Robert Lewandowski forfeited the shock against PSG. His replacement, a former Parisian, is ready to start on Wednesday.
Bayern – Paris Saint-Germain. A remake of the last C1 final and the Munich coronation in Lisbon. The opposition between two behemoths of the European scene. If Lewandowski’s injury with Poland will deprive us of an artist, it could bring happiness to a man, for whom this match will have a special flavor: Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting. Today in the Bavarian ranks, the Cameroonian striker experienced Lisbon disillusion alongside Kylian Mbappé and others last summer.
Not having extended the adventure with PSG despite being a hero during the Final 8 in Lisbon, Choupo-Moting is excited at the idea of reuniting with his former partners. The former Schalke 04, who was unanimous in the Parisian locker room, is one of the legitimate candidates to replace Robert Lewandowski at the forefront of the attack.
“It’s a shame he’s injured, for the whole club”
Of course, the striker is disappointed for his Polish partner, but he intends to give everything in training to have his chance to face his former team. “Lewy is the best striker in the world right now. It’s a shame he’s injured, for the whole club. We hope he comes back as soon as possible, because we need him.”
“We have a lot of options. I will give everything in training (…) It doesn’t matter if I end up playing or not. The main thing is that we succeed as a team”, thus entrusted the striker. But before the shock against Paris Saint-Germain, it is a clash against Leipzig, runner-up to the Bavarians in the Bundesliga, which looms.
“This game marks the start of the hot phase of the season for us. First against second, it will be a tall order.”, says Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting. Finally, the Bayern Munich player said he was proud to have been called up with the Cameroonian national team, even if he was not allowed to honor his selection.

“For my part, I can only say that I would have been happy to make it to the national team and behaved in an absolutely decent manner, just like FC Bayern. In my eyes it was probably a misunderstanding . For me, the problem is now over and I hope I will be nominated for the next matches. “
