A perfect Smalling outperforms his former teammate Lukaku (Stats)

AS Roma Fans

The Englishman led Roma’s defensive operations with authority. Smalling played a marvelous match facing Lukaku.

Two players with pure class and physical strength. Two former Manchester United stars who are playing an important role in the world of football.

Chris Smalling and Romelu Lukaku faced each other yesterday at the Stadio San Siro and their epic battle amazed the crowd.

The defender of the Giallorossi clearly outperformed Conte’s striker. His constant pressure has not given depth to the Belgian star. Smalling led Roma’s defense with authority while Lukaku failed to give his contributions to Inter.

Two great players who challenged each other on the pitch yesterday. Two brothers who respectfully hugged each other at the end of Inter-Roma.
