Two strikers had a real fight last time they played against each other and the fans around the world can't wait for the next time which is soon.

Both

Lukaku

and

Ibrahimovic

had an enormous impact on their teams since their arrival in Italy. Romelu Lukaku became a key figure in Conte’s squad, leading the frontline and turning them to a dangerous side while Zlatan turned

AC Milan

into a serious title contender.

However, former Milan player Alessandro Costacurta says Lukaku is harder to mark than Ibrahimovic, comparing their playing styles. Both forwards are expected to play pivotal roles for their teams in Sunday’s crucial Milan derby at San Siro.

“‘When you have someone 1.9m tall with Lukaku’s speed in front of you, like against Lazio, I get the impression he is unstoppable,”

Costacurta remarked in an interview with Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia today.

“Ibrahimovic is better at bringing others into play but perhaps because of how Inter play now, Lukaku could be more irritating for defenders than Ibrahimovic."

Romelu Lukaku,

Inter

’s best goal scorer has scored 22 goals across 29 matches across all competitions for the Italian side.
