Aiglon of the match

Bard on song again

For the second time this season, Melvin Bard has been voted Crédit Agricole Man of the Match following his performance against Lorient. He polled 24% to finish ahead of Dutch duo Calvin Stengs (20%) and Pablo Rosario (16%).

Melvin Bard enjoyed 106 touches at the Moustoir — the most of any player on the pitch — and was solid in his challenges, winning 71.4% of them. He also recovered possession eight times to be named the Aiglon of the Match again after also claiming the honour following the Nantes game.

The 20-year-old finished ahead of Calvin Stengs, who came off the bench on 24 minutes to replace injured compatriot Justin Kluivert. He had three passes before a shot, and sent Amine Gouiri through one-on-one with Paul Nardi in the first half. 

Pablo Rosario is Mr. Consistency. The Netherlands international won 75% of his duels (100% of his aerial duels), and completed 86% of his passes in the opponents' half. He also had a goalscoring chance in the first half, sending his bicycle kick wide of the target.
