Why United, Barcelona clash could be about Lukaku and Umtiti




There is no doubt that Belgium international Romelu Lukaku will be facing France international Samuel Umtiti when Man United and Barcelona clash in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League finals.

The Red Devils were able to secure a historic qualification against French Ligue 1 side PSG after coming down from a 2-0 down in the first leg of the round of 16 to scale through at Paris.

However, with a clash against Barcelona already in the set but, there are suggestions that it could be more of a fight between Romelu Lukaku and Samuel Umtiti as the two players clashed in the last summer World Cup.

Samuel Umtiti was able to stop the Belgium striker from scoring a goal and his side went ahead to secure a 1-0 win in the semi0finals before winning the tournament.

It is claimed that the pain is still fresh in the heart of the Belgium international and he might be coming out for revenge against Samuel Umtiti by also inflicting same pain with a win to qualify to the semi-finals.

There is no doubt about the current form of Romelu Lukaku because he has been able to get back to his best under manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after a very slow start of the season.
