Former PSG, Coman and Choupo-Moting are delighted to face the Parisian club in the quarterfinals even if the poster looks like a final before the hour.
We take (almost) the same ones and start over. Eight months after the 2020 Champions League final, Bayern Munich and PSG will face each other again on the European stage. This time from the quarter-finals but this double confrontation has everything of a final before the hour between two of the favorites for the title.
In August 2020, the capital club saw its dreams of a first C1 title fly away on a whim from Kingsley Coman. A shame when we know that the French international was trained at Camp des Loges before packing for Juventus Turin to sign his first professional contract. Executioner of his training club, Coman relishes this new reunion.
“It’s a good draw for all football fans, he told the Bayern Munich website. It’s the last Champions League final so it will necessarily be a very big game and a big team in face, said Coman. Their attack is their main strength but they have a very good team. Both teams can win this competition. “
The goal of Coman in the final, Eric Choupo-Moting lived it on the bench of PSG. Eight months later, the Cameroonian striker has since passed into the ranks of Munich, after not having accepted the offer of extension submitted by the Parisian club. Also playing the role of luxury replacement in Bavaria, “Choupo” is delighted to reunite with his former partners, with whom he has kept a good relationship.
“It’s really a special game for me. It will be very, very difficult. The whole world saw in the last final that PSG were a strong team, Choupo-Moting confided in an interview for the German club chain. They will be very motivated, but so will we. “
“I can’t wait to see them again. It’s a great story. Some guys on the team have already spoken to me and I have already received a few messages from Paris, the Stoke elder continued. They have a new coach and a few new players. So there have been some changes compared to last year. “
