The 12th game week of Ligue 1 started with PSG creating a new European record of most consecutive wins to start a domestic season and ended with Marseille’s 3-0 loss to Montpellier away.
Here is a look at the best players from the 12th GW of Ligue 1 for the 18/19 season
Bernardoni (Nimes); Ripart (Nimes), Briancon (Nimes), Abdelhamid (Reims), Maouassa (Nimes); Tait (Angers), Savanier (Nimes), Rongier (Nantes), Bouanga (Nimes); Mbappe (PSG), Laborde (Montpellier)
The team is dominated by Nimes, who beat Dijon 4-0 away. Goalkeeper Bernardoni, defenders Ripart, Briancon and Maouassa and midfielders Savanier and Bouanga, making it a total of six Nimes players, are in the Team of the Week. Reims’ Abdehamid is the only non Nimes player in defence, with his side having stunned Monaco to extend Thierry Henry’s winless run in charge of ASM to four games and prompted the legendary Arsenal great to launch a scathing attack on his own players.
Tait from Angers is the only person in the XI from a team not to have won this week. His side lost 4-3 to Saint Etienne. There is space for Gaetan Laborde, whose double helps MHSC beat OM 3-0, PSG’s Mbappe and Valentin Rongier, whose Nantes side demolished EAG 5-0.
