AT?? At the end of the first part of the season, the Figaro sports department offers you its typical Ligue 1 team.

This summer, his future was uncertain. Olympique Lyonnais, and in particular its new coach Peter Bosz, hoped to recruit Andrà © Onana, suspended for doping and who was then entering his last year of contract with Lâ ???? Ajax Amsterdam. It is clear that the threat of seeing his status erode has absolutely not upset him. A few months later, it is indeed Anthony Lopes who is favored by our editorial staff to appear in our typical Ligue 1 team at mid-season.

After several disappointing exercises, the Rhone goalkeeper returned to his best level. If he was not always irreproachable – he was excluded in the derby against AS Saint-Etienne – he showed himself to be Finishing many times with among others some exceptional parades. The Portuguese has 66 saves to his name, more than any other French elite goalkeeper. Without him, Olympique Lyonnais would undoubtedly have a few points less. Two other names were mentioned. They are Walter Benitez, very good with OGC Nice since the start of the season, and Pau Lopez, who won brilliantly in the net. of the Olympique de Marseille at the expense of Steve Mandanda.

Our central hinge is made up of Marquinhos and William Saliba, two players who garnered most of the votes. The Brazilian, capable of bringing an extra soul to Paris Saint-Germain through his character, remained also intractable in duels and in playing the game. than years gone by. Challenged on several occasions, the Rouge et Bleu would not have such a comfortable lead in the standings over their rivals if their captain had not been so brilliant in this first part of the season. By virtue of his athletic qualities, his science of placement, as well as his ability to participate happily in the construction of the game, the French, arrived on the Canebière this summer in ready from Arsenal, it didn’t take long to become an essential part of the Marseille squad. He is one of the main cogs of the very beautiful defensive base of Olympique Marseille; Team which has conceded the fewest goals so far but which has one game less. Dante, very good with the Eaglets since his return, was also cited.

On the right side of the defense, no surprise since our editorial team has chosen to align Jonathan Clauss. The Racing Club de Lens right piston continued its momentum from last season. Untenable on his wing, he has proven to be a constant threat to the opponents of the Blood and Gold as evidenced by his excellent statistics: 2 goals and 7 decisive assists. He is well ahead of Fabien Centonze and Hamari Traorà ©, effective respectively with FC Metz and Stade Rennais. AT?? left, the battle was tighter. Finally, it is Caio Henrique who joins our typical team. In a team with results below expectations, the Portuguese managed to pull his pin out of the game by delivering 4 offerings for his teammates. The Monegasque was in competition with the Niçois Melvin Bard, the Lensois Przemyslaw Frankowski and the Rennais Adrien Truffert.

In the middle of the field, it’s simple, Seko Fofana was unanimous. It must be said that the Ivorian midfielder of Racing Club de Lens has achieved a sensational first part of the season. His activity in the midfield, his physical impact, his ability to break lines by passing or dribbling or even his propensity to project himself into the opposing final third – with 5 goals on the clock – make it the boss of the Sang et Or and one of the best players in Ligue 1. In the midfield, he is associated with another exceptional player: Tà © ji Savanier. Orphan of the remarkable attacking duo that formed Andy Delort and Gaà «tan Laborde, the Montpellier playmaker has taken on a new dimension in recent months. He carried his team, which occupies a surprising 5th position in the standings. His statistics speak for him: 4 achievements and 5 decisive assists in 15 games played, almost as many as last season (27 matches, 5 goals, 5 offerings). Idrissa Gueye (Paris Saint-Germain), Flavien Tait (Stade Rennais) and Aurà © lien Tchouameni (AS Monaco) each received one vote.

A little higher, there is a nice neck and neck that has been played between Lucas Paqueta and Dimitri Payet. A fight narrowly won by the Marseillais. Real master to play of the Phoceans, the RÃ © unionnais shines under the orders of Jorge Sampaoli, in a position of playmaker, or false number nine, and is shown decisive on multiple occasions (6 goals and 6 decisive assists). The Lyonnais, so sparkling at the start of the championship, undoubtedly suffered from the poor results of his team and his recent downturn.

In front, a trio is largely detached. With 9 goals scored and 8 decisive assists given – he is so far the best assists in the championship – Kylian Mbappé has worn Paris Saint-Germain in recent months. Despite the arrival of the now seven-time Golden Ball Lionel Messi in the capital, the French international is still the most decisive player in the workforce of Mauricio Pochettino. Without its ability to score, or to make it scored, there is no doubt that the Rouge et Bleu would not have won so many matches. The world champion occupies the left flank of our attack. On the other side, we find Gaà «tan Laborde. Author of a great start to the season with Montpellier, the 27-year-old striker (9 goals, 6 last assists) continued ® to score goals with Stade Rennais. If the Breton club is also well classified, it is in large part thanks to its magnificent performances.

Finally, at the forefront, it is Jonathan David who has been favored by our editorial staff. Top scorer in the championship, the Canadian has already found the net 11 times. However, his excellent performances have not, for the moment, allowed LOSC to confirm their title acquired last season. Ludovic Ajorque, brilliant with RC Strasbourg Alsace (9 goals, 5 offerings) was also mentioned.
