The German striker was absent from the collective session this morning and suffers from a “sore throat”. Likely to replace Robert Lewandowski, injured and already forfeited for the two games against PSG, Serge Gnabry is highly uncertain for tomorrow’s meeting and could then leave the field open to Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting to start the match.

“He is an important player for us”
The technician from Bayern Munich recalled all the good he thought of the Cameroonian: “Choupo is an important player for us. As a substitute he did not have an easy period but he showed all his quality against Leipzig. He is very important for the team because he is a great guy. He unites the team and that is also why we are happy to have him with us. “
The 32-year-old striker could be reunited with PSG on Wednesday just a few months after leaving. With 5 goals scored in 25 games with the German leader since his arrival, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting does not weigh as much as Robert Lewandowski, already scorer of 42 goals this season with Bayern. Nevertheless, the striker remains an offensive threat and a player appreciated by the staff and the locker room.
