Having featured in the last 30 minutes of his team’s midweek demolition of Real Madrid in the Champions League from the bench, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting was back in action on Sunday’s encounter against Olympique Lyonnais.
The architect of 3 goals already This French League 1 campaign got the nod from coach Thomas Tuchel and enjoyed only his second 90 minutes in 4 French League 1 games he has played this season
Probably the most underrated forward in the French League, Eric Maxim’s presence along side Neymar and Di Maria for the French capital club provided lot’s of stress for Lyon and their system of 3 at the back.
Choupo-Moting’s work ethic was top-notch and though Neymar deservedly took most of the glory for landing Lyon the ‘coup de grace’ at the 87 minute, Eric Maxim was one of those who left the field with his head held high.
The striker is in competition with some of the biggest names in World football and such performances are only going to help him win the heart of his manager.
The victory puts PSG in the driver’s sit in the French League 1 as they go in search of their 9th league 1 title.
