Eric Choupo-Moting had a decent season at Stoke last year, being one of their better players as the club were condemned to relegation to the Championship. Despite this, his move to PSG last summer was a thoroughly surprising one. Seeing him mix it with the likes of Neymar, Kylian Mbappé and Edinson Cavani just feels wrong.
When studied closer, the transfer made more sense than it would seem. PSG needed another body up front, but were severely limited on who they could bring in due to financial fair play regulations. Choupo-Moting was available on a free, and had worked with manager Thomas Tuchel at Mainz.
His playing time has been limited as you might expect, but he got on the pitch tonight. He was given a rare opportunity to start against Strasbourg, and actually opened the scoring early on.
However, he would go on to have one of the worst misses we have ever seen. The dink over the goalkeeper from Christopher Nkunku was actually on the way into the net, meaning he didn't have to do anything. He went for the glory himself, and made an absolute balls of it.
We don't even know where to start with this one. Normally this miss wouldn't matter, with PSG tending to blow their Ligue 1 opponents away. However, this was actually a close match with Strasbourg leading late on.
We get the feeling their lead at the top of the table is safe enough regardless.
