Credit agricole aiglon of Nice - Paris SG

Thuram was unstoppable

Khephren Thuram was once more in an advanced position under Christophe Galtier and won over the Nice fans just a little more in the 1-0 victory over Paris Saint-Germain on Saturday.

90% pass completion rate. 6 runs into the final third, where he completed 87% of his passes. He made a record 13 passes to Amine Gouiri. These four stats from Opta showed the number 19’s desire to get forward. "Khephren is an important element in our game and in the way we want to play with the ball," commented Christophe Galtier, about Thuram, who started his 10th consecutive game in all competitions.

The 20-year-old put in a hard-fought performance before being replaced by Calvin Stengs to applause from the Allianz Riviera. A few minutes after coming off, the South Stand continued to chant the name of the U-21 international, who watched from the bench as Andy Delort scored the winning goal (88'). 

With 46% of the votes, Thuram beat Dante (13%) and Amine Gouiri (9%).
