Five goals this season

Arrived in Paris anonymously, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting made PSG history by qualifying his club for the semi-finals of the Champions League, scoring a decisive goal against Atalanta Bergamo.

But the striker born in Hamburg to a German mother and a Cameroonian basketball father surprised everyone by joining Bayern at the end of the season.

The usual replacement, present in all the bloopers after a memorable failure against Strasbourg, has only scored five goals with his new team this season.

But like at PSG, Eric Choupo-Moting has become the darling of the Bavarian locker room.

"A versatile player and always happy"

"He is a player who is unanimous with his good humor," confirms former Bayern Munich player Gernot Rohr at the microphone of Europe 1. "He is a versatile player. He is always happy, even if he is a replacement. "

And this time, Choupo-Moting will undoubtedly be holder, and will therefore have the heavy task of making Robert Lewandowski forget, but also of serving as a sort of spy for his teammates and his trainer, Hansi Flick.

"We discuss certain ideas, we check with him certain analyzes on Paris Saint-Germain", explains the technician.

And Wednesday evening, Choupo-Moting will hope to play a bad trick on his former teammates.
