Aiglon of the Match
Todibo takes home Aiglon of the Match against Auxerre (1-1)
You voted Jean-Clair Todibo as your Aiglon of the Match for Nice - Auxerre with a clear majority of the vote (52%). The 23-year old centre back showed his class against Les Bourguignons. Once again…
Each of his involvements was welcomed by a cheer from the Allianz Riviera. The good news: football is all about duels and duels are JC's business. Among others. Against AJA, the centre-back could do nothing about Gauthier Hein's opening goal, but he did everything else. He won the majority of his one-on-ones (8/11), successfully completed the majority of his passes (91%), defended while moving forward, reigned in the air and in behind thanks to his reading of the game and his speed. His effort to get back and deny Sinayoko, as the young Auxerre player was running through alone to score, was as spectacular as it was decisive (71').
Consistently performing well, Todibo is the player to have recovered the most balls on Friday (12, on a par with AJA's Mensah). He is deservedly the man who takes home the crown from your votes.
Jordan Lotomba takes second place in the vote (21%). The Swiss international is putting in quality performance after perfromance. On what was his 100th appearance in Red and Black, he had a ferocious battle with Dembélé andMensah, and even picked up a sumptuous assist for Gaëtan Laborde who completes your podium (10%). The forward's desire never dropped off, not after his first two strikes off-target nor the penalty that was stopped by Radu. He was eventually rewarded for his efforts when he headed home his 8th goal for Le Gym (his 10th of the season).
