For the second week in a row, Ligue 1 offered up some good games, and a lot of goals too! Both Paris Saint-Germain and Lyon continued their good starts to the season, as well as Nice, who have 2 wins out of 2. But who makes it into our Team of the Week? Will the big boys dominate, or will the rest of Ligue 1 grab the headlines?
Kevin Trapp- PSG- 8.4
Rafael- Lyon- 8.3
Nicolas N’Koulou- Lyon- 8.4
Floretin Pogba- ASSE- 8.1
Lima- Nantes- 8.2
Yannis Salibur- Guingamp- 8.3
Oscar Trejo- Toulouse- 9.2
Billy Ketkeophomphone- Angers- 9.0
Angel Di Maria- PSG- 10.0
Martin Braithwaite- Toulouse- 8.9
Alassane Plea- Nice- 8.0
Continuing the theme from last week, and Lyon and PSG have two players each in this week’s Team of the Week, but Toulouse also have two stars here, thanks to their fantastic 4-1 victory over Bordeaux. Martin Braithwaite bagged a double in the win, with Oscar Trejo controlling the midfield.
Angel Di Maria picks up this weeks’ Player of the Week, with his outstanding display on Sunday evening at home against Metz, showing why he is one of the best attacking midfielders in Europe.
Rafael and Nicolas N’Koulou are the Lyon representatives this week, showing how defensively sound Les Gones were this weekend. The strong start made by Bruno Genesio’s men suggest that they can push Paris Saint-Germain further this season, and may challenge them for the Ligue 1 title.
