Udinese defender Jaka Bijol shared with anticipation his feelings ahead of the match-up with Roma’s Romelu Lukaku.

The two teams will meet this Sunday at the Stadio Olimpico for the first match after the international break.

Bijol will be tasked with guarding Roma striker Romelu Lukaku who has already 6 goals in 10 Serie A appearances for the Giallorossi.

“As a centreback it will be a great battle with Lukaku,” Bijol told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“You must never lose him, you must keep up with him, play with your body, you must be ready because physically he is very strong and I know very well what he is capable of doing,” added the young defender.
