The "Gazzetta dello Sport" emphasizes the relationship between Lukaku and Smalling, which will be found against each other in Inter-Roma.
FRIENDS IN MANCHESTER – Lukaku and Smalling have a few things in common. Tall are tall, big as well, even friends. Together they played two seasons and 73 games, then found themselves side by side on a Manchester United bench in Singapore, watching their teammates play against Inter. A little bored, very nervous about news of a transfer they wanted strongly. And they wanted quickly, to revive their careers. Big Rom was "freed" first, Chris had to wait until late August. Four months later they will be close again, this time in the penalty area, with little time to get bored and less doubt about the future: the relaunch operation can already be defined a success. In Manchester they often went out together, in a friendship that blossomed early in training, between laughter, similar childhood memories (little money and many sacrifices of the mother) and some common passion. Today they still feel, messaggiano, keep in touch in this common Italian adventure.
CHALLENGE TOSTA – Tomorrow, against a Roma match with a few defensive certainties but grown week after week, is another important crash-test for Inter's pair Lukaku-Lautaro Martinez, in which the Belgian plays an important role for goals, movements, leadership. And Smalling may be one of Lukaku's toughest rivals . After all, since he has been there, Rome has not only put one like Manolas in the memories drawer, but has also found defensive balance and leadership. For example, in the 8 games of A that were played between October and November the Giallorossi have conceded six goals, resulting in that time frame the best defense of Serie A. Unthinkable returning with the mind to the imbalances of the beginning of September. And one of the secrets is indeed Smalling, which has given solidity and security to the department.
