Here is the Ligue 1 Team of the Round for Game Week 29. There are plenty of new faces in this GW29 TOTW- only four of the eleven named have made it to a TOTW before. The best player in the XI was Argentina’s Angel di Maria, whose fantastic performance against Marseille saw him make it as PSG’s only representative.
Round 29 lasted across four match days. It began with Nice’s 1-1 draw against Toulouse on Thursday and ended with PSG’s 3-1 triumph at home over Marseille. Only one game was goalless (Angers v Amiens), and that fixture saw two Amiens players in the form of Gurtner and Gouano earn TOTW nominations. Monaco’s fine win away at Champions League chasing Lille got nominations for the troika of Ballo-Toure, Jemerson and Adrien Silva.
The team and the coach of the week both came from St Etienne, whose fine 5-0 win over Caen saw them leapfrog Reims in the league standings.
Ligue 1 Team of the Week Round 29: Gurtner (Amiens), Dubois (Lyon), Gouano (Amiens), Jemerson (ASM), Ballo-Toure (ASM), Savanier (Nimes), Silva (ASM), Oudin (Reims), Hamouma (ASSE), Bedic (ASSE), Di Maria (PSG)
