Samuel Umtiti vs. Edin Dzeko. There are few center-backs in the world who’ve been as consistently excellent as Umtiti. As for Dzeko, he’s bagged 18 goals in all competitions for Roma this season and has been colossal in some massive clashes in the Champions League. He struck three times in two games against Chelsea and the decisive strike versus Shakhtar Donetsk in the round of 16. The French defender will have to track the Bosnian forward’s movements because he’s very mobile for a big striker.
