The majority votes for Gouiri in March

With 53% of the vote, Amine Gouiri is your Aiglon Crédit Agricole PCA for March. The gym's top scorer, crowned for the 5th time this season, finished ahead of Jean-Clair Todibo (25%), who had another fine month in rouge et noir, and Youcef Atal (11%), back playing out wide.

He was a scorer against Nîmes (2-1) and then against Marseille as well as providing an assist for Thuram in the derby. Once again, Amine Gouiri was crucial to Gym's good results in March, with 2 wins and 1 draw in the league. Beyond the statistics - now up to 12 goals and 6 assists in L1 - the 21-year-old forward has been a huge presence in the final third.

Technically beyond reproach, a master of the art of finding space and being in the right place at the right time, the Nice number 11 showed off his full range in the derby. Against OM, one statistic shows the appetite for the former Lyon player to delight his team-mates: Gouiri played six passes that led to a shot, a record for Gym this season.

Already crowned in August, October and November, Gouiri underlined his form in 2021. The scorer of 7 goals since the start of January, he's headed on that list only by Mbappé (8) while only Depay (11) has been involved in more league goals than him (10). Moreover, against OM he was a scorer and supplied an assist for the 3rd time this season. No player in Ligue 1 has done better than that.

Todibo second, Atal third

Behind the forward, Jean-Clair Todibo is second on the podium (25%). A starter 5 times in February, the defender followed that up with a fine March. A starter against Nîmes and Marseille, the number 25 was on the podium in the Aiglon vote in each game.

Without his habitual defensive partner, William Saliba, the centre-half notably shone alongside Flavius Daniliuc in the derby, repelling he Marseille attacks and helping his team collect a clean sheet.

Youcef Atal is third with 11% of the bote. Absent since his winning goal at Lens at the end of January (0-1), the Algerian full-back was back on the pitch at the start of March. A starter against Nîmes, in a more attacking position that he knows well, the African champion put all of his qualities to the service of his team. Lively and provocative, e put in an hour at a very high level before playing 23 good minutes to finish the derby.
