A battle between Balotelli and Plea

Aiglon of the Month

September 25, 2017

A battle between Balotelli and Plea

The two make up the spearpoint of the Red and Black attack. They both have very different roles and each have very specific characteristics. Used to playing one for the other, Mario Balotelli and Alassane Plea find themselves in the battle for the title of Crédit Agricole Aiglon of the Month for September.

With the election of player of the month only taking into account the various “Man of the Match” winners during the league matches, the two attacking forces logically find themselves shoulder to shoulder. A sign of their collective rediscovery, at a time when the days begin to shorten.

Reinvigorated by the international break at the start of the month, Super Mario has made the difference in each of the Aiglons encounters. Scorer of a brace against Monaco (4-0), author of a magnificent strike at Rennes (1-0), precise from the penalty spot and agressive against Angers (2-2), the Italian giant delighted, as he united aesthetics and effectiveness. These two ingredients have also helped the Gym to get its European campaign underway in the right manner, given that the number 9 scored and assisted during the victory at Zulte-Waregem (5-1). Capping off a quality month.

During this victory, his attack partner also finished the game with a brace. A brace which prepared the way for Lucien Favre’s side. Before that, Plea. powerful, generous, omnipresent, scored a sumptuous goal in the derby against Monaco. And after that, he served the ball on a plate for Mario against Rennes, during a match in which his effort and omnipresence convinced you to vote for him as Man of the Match.
