Yes, we have 2 of the best 10 RBs in the world with Semedo and Roberto. No joke.
There's two things I like about Semedo's game.
1) His passing is very on-point in pressure situations. Like, if he's pressed near the sideline, he puts the ball in the middle several times. You need some balls to do that, because we're talking 30m. passes from wide inside. If that pass is not controlled and precise, it's a big problem.
2) He's very solid defensively, except the cases where he is caught up field (usually due to a ****-up in build up by Busi or Rakitic). Against Man United you could see that United players knew his strenght in 1 vs 1, because they didn't try too much, and were happy to put in crosses from far wide without challenging Semedo. He has pace, and is strong. Hard opponent to beat in individual duels, without some great technical skills.
