Round 33

Table/Results


GOALKEEPER

Guy N'DY ASSEMBE
Nancy
TOTW Apps: 3

N'Dy Assembe makes his third appearance of the season after a decent performance in the side's 0-0 draw with Ajaccio. The custodian grabbed another clean sheet to wrap up a good outing at Stade Francois Coty as he managed to pull off a number of saves to deny the hosts.

DEFENDERS

Christophe JALLET

 CRIS

 Aldo ANGOULA
Evian

Jallet also appears for a third time in the Team of the Week (TOTW) after an inspired showing in PSG's crushing 6-1 victory over Sochaux on Sunday. The stand-in captain made two assists, setting up Nene twice from menacing deliveries as les Lionceaux failed to contend with Jallet's threat on the right wing.

Cris impressed in Lyon's come-from-behind 3-2 victory over FC Lorient. The club captain instigated the comeback win with a well-taken goal, before nullifying les Merlus' attacking threat completely as Remi Garde's men stayed in the hunt for a Champions League place.

Evian's Angoula starred as the Savoy club upstaged high-flyers Toulouse 2-1 on Saturday and move further up the league table. Angoula scored one and proved a hard man to beat in defence with a number of timely interceptions.

NENE
PSG
TOTW Apps: 6

Menez was once again deployed as a makeshift centre-forward, but once more proved to be the difference as PSG thrashed Sochaux 6-1. The tricky winger scored one and had a hand in a few others as Carlo Ancelotti's side hit the relegation outfit with a half-dozen goals.

M'Vila
staked his claim for a move away from Ligue 1 with a commendable performance in Rennes' 1-0 win away to Brest that consolidated their European ambitions. The les Rouge et Noir star marshalled his midfield well, calmly connecting defence and attack.

A week of firsts for PSG's Motta, who makes his first appearance in TOTW as well as scoring his maiden goal for les Parisiens on Sunday with a great diving header. The former Inter midfielder failed to give Sochaux any chance in the middle of the park, and was ultimately one of the best players on the park.

Nene brings the number of PSG players in TOTW to four, after his double killed off any resistance from the visitors, with two quick goals - his 15th and 16th league goal of the season. The Brazilian's second displayed his class and technical ability with a fine dribble past the goalkeeper.


Eden HAZARD
Lille
TOTW Apps: 7
Hazard makes a seventh appearance of the season in the Best XI after once again starring in Lille's 2-0 win over Dijon, a match that saw more red cards than goals. The Belgian wonderkid set up Rio Mavuba's first before gratefully latching onto Nolan Roux's pass to double les Dogues advantage.

Pierre-Emerick AUBAMEYANG
Saint-Etienne
TOTW Apps: 3

Jussie of Bordeaux joins the team for the first time after hitting Marseille with two first-half goals as les Girondins completed a 2-1 victory. Jussie scored within seconds of kick-off, before adding another to stretch OM's winless run in the league.

Rounding off the TOTW for Round 33 is Saint Etienne's Aubameyang, who grabbed two goals in les Verts crushing 4-1 win away to Caen on Saturday. Aubameyang now has 13 league goals for the season as Christophe Galtier's men continue the surge for a European berth.
