Kylian Mbappe was again named in the Team of the Week, this time as the solitary Paris SG representative, after his goal helped Thomas Tuchel’s side beat Saint-Etienne away in a tricky clash in Game Week 25. Mbappe had scored in the midweek Champions League game against Manchester United, and netted a stunner at Stade Geoffrey Guichard to give his team a 1-0 win.
Angers had three representatives in last week’s TOTW, and they continued their nice run of a form with a 3-0 win over Nice, which has earned goalkeeper Ludovic Butelle and midfielder Baptiste Santamaria nominations in GW 25’s Team of the Round.
The interesting bit about this week’s players- with the exception of Reims forward Boulaye Dia, they’ve all appeared in the Team of the Week earlier this season. The only played to be nominated both this week and the last one is Monaco’s Gelson Martins, whose goal against Nantes lifted ASM out of the drop zone.
Ligue 1 TOTW Round 25: Butelle (Angers); Alakouch (Nimes), Kounde (Bordeaux), Abdelhamid (Reims), Marcal (Lyon; Savanier (Nimes), Santamaria (Nimes), Thauvin (Marseille), Martins (Marseille); Mbappe (PSG), Dia (Reims)
