Anything one France centre-back can do, the other can too! After Raphael Varane top-scored with 12 points in Round 5, Samuel Umtiti did the same in Round 6 – both thanks to a clean sheet and a header from a set-piece.
Varane settled for another six points to jump second on the players’ leaderboard, behind Harry Kane, while Benjamin Pavard and Lucas Hernandez seized the same tally and Hugo Lloris got seven points.
The latter’s return was matched by England’s Kieran Trippier, who scored a brilliant free-kick in Moscow, where Croatia’s Ivan Perisic provided a goal and an assist to claim nine points.
