Bayern Munich’s forward Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting will not be available for the team’s upcoming UEFA Champions League quarter-final clash against Manchester City due to injury. Choupo-Moting, who scored a vital goal in the second leg of Bayern’s round of 16 tie against Lazio, has been sidelined with a muscular problem. The Cameroonian striker has been a key player for Bayern this season, providing cover for the team’s star striker, Robert Lewandowski.
Bayern Munich, the defending champions of the UEFA Champions League, will be facing a tough test against Manchester City, who is considered one of the strongest teams in Europe at the moment. The absence of Choupo-Moting will be a blow to the Bavarians, who will have to rely on Lewandowski and other attacking options to breach Manchester City’s defense.
The match is set to take place on April 12, 2023, at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, England. Bayern Munich will be looking to take a positive result back to the Allianz Arena for the second leg of the tie. Manchester City, on the other hand, will be aiming to establish a lead in the first leg and secure their spot in the semi-finals of the competition. The clash between two of the biggest clubs in Europe is expected to be an enthralling affair, with both teams possessing a wealth of talent and experience.
