Inter went above and beyond to cash in on a dominant performance against Roma and avenge last season’s defeat in this fixture. Marcus Thuram’s late winner inspired Simone Inzaghi’s side to a well-deserved 1-0 victory at Giuseppe Meazza, catapulting them back to the top of the Serie A table. 

Despite enjoying most of the ball possession and creating numerous promising goalscoring opportunities, Inter left it late to sink Jose Mourinho’s ‘bus.’ A moment of inspiration from Federico Dimarco and Thuram’s poacher’s skills got Nerazzurri over the line when it looked like Roma could waltz away undefeated.

Thuram has grown increasingly vital to Inzaghi’s set-up. He has already tallied four goals in Serie A, not to mention added five assists, proving himself a perfect replacement for Romelu Lukaku, who ended up on the losing side tonight. His match-winning showing earned him a round of applause from the manager.

What makes the difference is how Thuram works in training every day. He focuses on the details, on the field and off, so he must continue like this,” the Inter boss told DAZN, as quoted by Tuttomercatoweb. “He is also helped by already knowing the language very well.

Inzaghi also thanked Inter fans for creating a great atmosphere. 

The atmosphere at San Siro has always been exceptional. Clearly, we felt it more today, but when it’s against Roma, Milan, Cagliari or anyone else, the atmosphere at San Siro is always magical.
