Asuma is not edo tensei

Both are bloodlusted

I want to say Asuma but I'm going with Neji.

How will asuma get passed Neji's Byakugan and Defenses?

I'm saying neji of this one,he's faster than asuma,and has 360 degrees of vision.You can't really sneak up on him and he'll know where you are at all times.Plus his gentle fist can shut down asuma's chakra and body,if he gets in close enough to use it.And rotation can't easily be penetrated.

Well, he seems to have very good defences himself. I could say he has more taijutsu skills than neji, considering he was fighting very well with hidan.. That fire technique he used can be effective. Well, neji has his spinning counter, but if I remember correct, when chiriku used the guardian technique, he sent both Hidan and Kakuzu flying, right? It could be very useful, considering kakuzu stopped chouji's blow head on..

I doubt neji's faster than asuma.. asuma is one guy from naruto who needed more screen time though.

Not really.. I saw him battling all right ;)

well, after seeing asuma's fight with hidan, I'd say he has speed advantage..

Asuma in my opinion.

I didn't really see anything that would strike me as him being fast,but ok.

@son_of_tomorrow: Not advantage really, but still it doesn't seem like asuma's lacking in the speed department..

Bump

I wish all the lesser known Naruto characters would get more canon screen time, it was nice seeing Asuma show what he can actually do as a Jonin, I'd like for a Kurenai showing, or for once have Iruka do something, he hasn't been relevant since part one. 
 
Anyway, Neji gets my vote.

Neji unless Asuma fights from a distance

Asuma. Being Neji's teacher gives him a huge advantage. He knows Neji's weaknesses.
