Riccardo Trevisani, a journalist at Mediaset, offered a critical analysis of Romelu Lukaku’s performance in the Juve-Roma match on “Pressing”. According to Trevisani, Lukaku was completely undone by the work of Bremer.
Trevisani contested Lukaku’s performance in big games, recalling the Champions League and Europa League finals with Inter. He said, “Lukaku is a player who is never seen in important matches. Remember the Champions League final, the Europa League final with Inter… And today he has been pocketed by Bremer.”
Trevisani also drew attention to the disparity between the performances of Juve’s and Roma’s attack, implying that Dusan Vlahovic, Juve’s striker, significantly outplayed Lukaku. “The difference in Juventus-Roma was made by the two forwards: Vlahovic on the other side did very well. Different from Lukaku, better when it counts like today.” Trevisani declared.
His commentary seems to question Lukaku’s ability to step up in key moments despite his impressive skills and renowned reputation. With these words, it is clear that sports journalism continues to scrutinize every aspect of performance as big games come and go in the football world.
