Pavard has been very good this season at both right-back (the position he is expected to man against the Citizens) and center-back. No matter where he plays, however, Pavard will be look to continue to contribute on both ends of the pitch.
Of late, the Frenchman has become a legitimate goal-scoring threat for Bayern Munich.
“My role is defensive. But if I can score goals, it’s good for the team. I focus mainly on defending, but if the ball falls in front of me, of course I’ll try to shoot. It’s important that we act as a team,” said Pavard (as captured by @iMiaSanMia).
Bayern Munich might not need quite as much of Pavard crashing into the box, though. The return of striker Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting should provide the attack with a jolt.
“Choupo has had a very good season, he’s physically very strong. I think he’ll be back tomorrow. But it’s up to the coach if he plays tomorrow. Our problem is that we have many chances but don’t take them. I think he’ll be a help,” Pavard said.
