Inter Milan striker Marcus Thuram will be hoping for another “turning point” match against Fiorentina tomorrow evening.
This is the view in today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, via FCInterNews. The newspaper note that the last meeting with La Real was a real breakout game for the Frenchman.
Thuram had already shown clear signs of what he’s capable of during his first two competitive matches for Inter.
In Serie A outings against Monza and Cagliari, the 26-year-old’s deft feet and blistering pace were on full display.
Thuram looked like a player who could unlock defenses from almost anywhere on the pitch with a quick turn or burst of pace.
But what the former Borussia Monchengladbach man did not really have in those matches was end product.
Thuram was not getting into goalscoring positions. Nor was he finding his teammates with a dangerous final ball.
But that all changed against Fiorentina in Inter’s third match of the season.
Marcus Thuram Hoping For Another “Turning Point” Vs Fiorentina
Against Fiorentina at the San Siro, Thuram really introduced himself to the Inter fans.
It was the Frenchman who scored Inter’s first goal in a 4-0 rout.
Thuram latched onto the end of a Federico Dimarco, finding the back of the net with a bullet header.
No more was Thuram just a threat in terms of his footwork, dribbling, and pace. He also showed for the first time the ability to impact matches in a simpler, more lethal way.
Then, Thuram was also the player who assisted Lautaro Martinez for Inter’s second goal of the match.
From there, the 26-year-old never really looked back.
It has been a season that’s seen Thuram score ten goals and make seven assists.
Now, the Frenchman will be eyeing up a second meeting with Fiorentina, this time in Tuscany, as another opportunity to take a decisive step forward.
