Eric Choupo-Moting in Stoke had a successful season last year, becoming one of their greatest players at the club's conviction for entering the competition. Despite this, the move to PSG this summer was a surprise. Whether he is mixing it with such as Neymar, Kylian Mbappé and Edinson Cavani just feels wrong.
When it was examined closer, the move made more sense than you think. PSG would need another party ahead, but it was very restricted as to what they could bring in because of fair financial game rules. Choupo-Moting was available free of charge and he had worked with manager Thomas Tuchel at Mainz.
His playing time has been limited as he expected, but he got off in the park tonight. He was given a unique opportunity to start against Strasbourg, and indeed opened the early scoring.
But, it would go on to be one of the worst we have ever seen. Mink were coming from Chris Nkunku on the way into the net, meaning he had nothing to do. He went for his own glory, and made clear balls of it.

We don't even know where we will start with this one. This loss was not usually a useful and would keep PSG opposing their opponents on 1 Ligue. But, this was really a guide to Strasbourg.
We find out that their lead at the top of the board is safe enough.
