Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting

Bayern is currently the in-form team across all top leagues in Europe. They are currently unbeaten in 13 games across all competitions, which included 12 wins. Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting has been one of the big reasons for Bayern’s resurgence in the last six weeks.

The Cameroon striker has become a focal point for Die Roten in the final third. Along with scoring 11 goals across all competitions, Choupo-Moting’s linkup play has benefited other forwards in the final third. He has managed to shrug off defenders and bring other forwards into play whenever Die Roten uses him as a target man.

Cameroon is in a difficult group with Brazil, Serbia, and Switzerland. They are not the current favourite to win the group, but Choupo-Moting’s red-hot form can definitely propel them into the next round. He has managed to score five goals in the five league games for Die Roten, so Cameroon will be hoping to witness similar form in front of the goal. (Stats courtesy: Whoscored)

Choupo-Moting will ensure Cameroon’s qualification for the next round if he manages to find the back of the net thrice during the group stage. He has been the glue for Bayern’s attack over the past few weeks, so it wouldn’t be surprising to see him lighting up the World Cup in Qatar.
