Normalized yield of inclusive $\Jpsi$ as a function of the normalized charged-particle pseudorapidity density, measured at midrapidity, in \pPb collisions at \eightnnNS~compared with EPOS~3~ calculations. Left (right) panel presents the measurement at forward (backward) rapidity The vertical bars represent the statistical uncertainties, the boxes the systematic ones. The dashed line indicates the one-to-one correlation, to guide the eye. The shaded areas represent the statistical uncertainties on the EPOS~3 calculations.
