"Your opposite number" nghĩa là gì?

Ố ồ, đây là vẻ đẹp gì ta? Photo by Karan Singh from Pexels

'One's opposite number' = con số đối ngược của ai -> người giữ vị trí, vai trò, chức năng tương tự trong một nhóm, công ty hay tổ chức khác; bản sao, đối thủ của ai ở một nơi/vị trí khác.

Ví dụ
Every now and again a clandestine grape found its way into your mouth (don't tell Antoine). Every now and again you'd look up and catch a rueful grin from your opposite number. It made it all seem worth while.

"It is heaven and hell (thiên đàng và địa ngục) at once. The heaven is the pure, physical, one-on-one battle with your opposite number. The hell is the difficulty breathing. And the smell." -- George Chuter, ex-England hooker.

This weekend Sara Barattin will become Italy Women’s all-time record appearance maker – and opposite number Leanne Riley knows that England will have to be on their toes to cope with (đương đầu, đối phó) the experienced scrum-half (hậu vệ ném bóng vào nhóm tấn công).

What are your thoughts about your opposite number at Wydad Casablanca, Said Naciri? And his behaviour (hành vi, cư xử) at Rades? Well, I have only met him on the field of play. I guess he was trying to defend the interests of his club. What I can say is there are big clubs in Africa and Wydad is certainly amongst them, as are Raja Casablanca, Ahly, TP Mazembe, Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates in South Africa. They shall always have our respect (tôn trọng)...
