UEFA Champions League 2018-19 Round of 16: 5 Player battles that the fans would relish
#2 Paul Pogba v Marco Verratti
It is 2018 and even if Pogba and Verratti aren't at their magical best, both of them are the talisman of their own teams. Pogba being the ideal modern generation box-to-box midfielder, and Verratti being the perfect playmaker for his Parisian team-mates.
Not just about these two midfield icons, it would also be a battle of the philosophies the clubs carry currently, with a non-firing United taking on an attack-minded PSG. On current form, this looks a non-contest, but with Mourinho, in the dugout, anything is possible (especially after their win in Turin).
It would be interesting to see who prevails over another - the Frenchman or the Italian.
