2. Nicolas Otamendi vs Diego Costa-

This will be the most intense physical battle in the game as both of them are known for their in-game physical strength.

We are well aware of Diego Costa’s abilities. Diego is a good header of the ball and can be a threat in the air against Otamendi. Costa’s game is a joy to watch (when he is on the ball) and he is never afraid to take the shots  from range. Otamendi will have to make sure that Costa should not be allowed the room to take his shots. Otamendi, in recent weeks, has been a beast in defending, gave a great performance against PSG. Costa, on the other hand, will be returning on to the field after missing several matches due to suspension and will be looking to put a mark on the game as soon as possible.
