Both Martinez and Thuram found the back of the net in their recent 3-0 triumph over Torino, boosting Martinez’s overall goal tally to 12 in all competitions. Since the exits of Edin Dzeko and Lukaku, Martinez has become the primary focal point of Inter’s attack. He currently holds a five-goal lead over his nearest competitor, Victor Osimhen, in the Serie A top scorers’ chart.
Thuram showered praise on Martinez, hailing him as one of the finest strikers in the world and highlighting that playing alongside him facilitates everything. Thuram, who rejoined Italy from Borussia Moenchengladbach, has also made a significant impact at Inter. Despite only finding the back of the net four times, he has contributed five assists, three of which were for Martinez.
Inter, with four points in Group D, is on par with leaders Real Sociedad, with Martinez and Thuram playing pivotal roles in Inter’s first two matches. Martinez secured a draw in the opener against Sociedad, whereas Thuram clinched victory with a decisive goal against Benfica.
With a one-point advantage over Salzburg and Sociedad facing the bottom-placed Benfica, Inter has a splendid opportunity to establish a comfortable lead in the group and enhance their prospects of advancing to the knockout stages.
