The most exciting battle tonight will be between Inter striker Romelu Lukaku and Torino striker Andrea Belotti, according to a report from today’s paper edition of the Milano based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport.
The report details how the two forwards have never met on the pitch before, but tonight’s game will provide an ample opportunity for the strikers to show their strengths in an important game for both teams. Multiple times they’ve been close to each other on the transfer market but never met each other just yet.
Furthermore, tonight’s game has an air of Euro 2020 around it as well, the report highlights. Both Italy and Belgium were the only two teams to win all ten out of their qualifying games for next summer’s competition, with Lukaku scoring seven for Belgium and Belotti scoring four for the Azzurri.
Torino are hoping to continue their strong form in tonight’s game, the report continues, with strong showings against both Juventus and Brescia, whereas the Nerazzurri are looking to keep up the pressure on the Bianconeri at the top of the table, although Inter haven’t beaten the Granata in their last five meetings.
