Inter star Marcus Thuram underwent a round of medical tests this morning following his injury in the Champions League win over Atletico Madrid.

The 26-year-old Frenchman was forced off the pitch at the half-time break of the Nerazzurri’s European encounter with Atletico on Tuesday evening, being replaced by Marko Arnautovic. He was seen looking frustrated on the bench and it was clear that he’d felt an issue with his adductor.

Thuram has been one of the stars of the show at Inter this season, scoring 12 goals and providing 11 assists in 34 matches across all competitions, making him one of the most important players in Simone Inzaghi’s squad.

As announced today, Thuram underwent medical tests at the Humanitas Clinical Institute in Rozzano this morning, which confirmed an elongation of the adductor of the right thigh. Whilst this is an injury that’ll sideline the striker for around two weeks, he has avoided suffering a major problem.

The Frenchman will not be part of the Nerazzurri squad for their coming Serie A clashes with Lecce and Atalanta, but could hope to return to the pitch for the matches against Genoa on March 4 or Bologna on March 10.

Thuram and Inter’s goal is for him to be fully fit for the second leg against Atletico on March 13, a key match in the team’s European campaign this term.
