Torino defender and captain Alessandro Buongiorno was asked to preview the upcoming clash with Roma on Monday evening.

Despite not being available of Monday due to a shoulder injury, in an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport, Buongiorno called Lukaku the toughest striker in Serie A.

“For me, the most difficult attacker to face is Lukaku. He is very tough,” said the Italian centreback.

“He has great physicality and uses it against you. You have to be very careful not to give him a chance. With him it is necessary to play with anticipation. Another very strong player, even though I’ve never marked him so far, is Osimhen. He has power power, and a competitive edge.”
