Football Bet of the Day: Magic Marcus can strike

Inter forward Marcus Thuram
Marcus Thuram has been outstanding for Inter this season

We're kicking off the weekend in Italy, and Kevin Hatchard's picked out a goalscorer bet for us.

The Danish Cup final started promisingly for our BTTS bet, as Silkeborg took a first-half lead, but alas AGF couldn't grab an equaliser in a 1-0 defeat. Congratulations to Silkeborg, commiserations to us.

We'll head to Italy, because runaway champions Inter are in action at Frosinone, and I fancy out of the Nerazzurri's star forwards to find the net.

Since Inter secured the Scudetto by beating city rivals Milan at San Siro, it's been party time for Simone Inzaghi's men, and they looked somewhat distracted in their recent defeat to relegation battlers Sassuolo.

Hosts Frosinone are just above the dropzone, and although they've gone on a well-timed run of six games without defeat, I still think Inter can create plenty of chances at the Stadio Benito Stirpe. Frosinone have leaked 63 goals in 35 games, and they lost 2-0 at Inter in the reverse fixture.

I like the look of backing Marcus Thuram to score here at 2.68/5. The French international has been a revelation in his first season at Inter, scoring 12 league goals and making seven more. He still wants to impress France boss Didier Deschamps ahead of the Euros, and he has found the net in two of his last three matches.

What's been impressive about Thuram this term is how clinical he's been, scoring his 12 league goals from just 26 shots on target. His conversion from wide player to central striker has been hugely successful in the last couple of seasons, and he has been a star man for Inter this term.
