Crédit Agricole PCA Aiglon: Gouiri, a constant menace

With a goal and an assist against Marseille on Wednesday, Amine Gouiri is your Crédit Agricole PCA Aiglon of the Match. With 45% of the votes, he came home ahead of Malik Sellouki (29%) and Hicham Boudaoui (14%).

Amine Gouiri got his team back in the game, finishing off Hicham Boudaoui's cross two minutes into the second half, nipping in ahead of Alvaro Gonzalez to beat Steve Mandanda at the near post.

In added time, he came within a whisker of grabbing a point: his brilliant free-kick rebounding off a post. He had also had a one-on-one with Mandanda, and tallied an enterprising four shots in the game.

With his dribbling, he was a constant threat and provided the ball for Malik Sellouki to reduce the deficit (3-2, 87’). Making his first-team debut, Sellouki needed just 13 minutes and 10 touches to provide a goal. 

With three minutes to go, he escaped the attentions of Yuto Nagatomo to fire Gouiri's cross first-time past Mandanda at the near post.

Boudaoui came in third. The Algeria international was repositioned higher up the pitch after the break, and underlined that choice with the pass for Gouiri's goal.
