Inter Milan stirker Marcus Thuram feels that Inter Milan got a “tough” win against a Roma side who were far from easy to beat.

The Frenchman spoke to InterTV after the Nerazzurri’s 4-2 Serie A win at the Stadio Olimpico, via FCInterNews.

Inter made it seven wins from seven in 2024 against Roma.

The Nerazzurri kept the momentum from last weekend’s Derby d’Italia win over Juventus going and beat the Giallorossi for the second time this season.

It wasn’t an easy win by any means, though.

Inter did score the first goal of the match. But then Roma responded with two goals to take a 2-1 lead into halftime.

And that scoreline hardly flattered Daniele De Rossi’s men.

The Giallorossi had really found their groove in what had been a somewhat scrappy but always high-tempo match in very wet conditions during the first half.

This meant that all the onus was on Inter to establish their own game in the second half in order to turn things around if they were to get yet another victory in Serie A.

Inter Striker Marcus Thuram: “Roma Play Good Football”

Inter did manage to find much more of a rhythm during the second half, however.

The Nerazzurri started to string passes together at pace, and move the ball around a Giallorossi team who did not look to have the same answers that they have in the first half.

Inter scored the equalizer through Thuram early on in the second half.

Then, it was the 26-year-old’s whose presence all but forced Roma defender Angelilo to turn the ball into his own net just a few minutes later.

For the second weekend in a row, in a big match, Thuram had forced a decisive own goal.

Asked if he thinks that he’s the best version of himself now, Thuram replied “No. I’m just trying to help the team in each match in every way I can.”

“I’m not Inter’s dragon,” the Frenchman continued.

“It was a very tough match against an opponent who play good football,” Thuram added. “It was a good win and I’m happy.”
