Aiglon of the match Toulouse 2-1 Nice

Guessand is the winner

Generous in his efforts as well as being Gym's main attacking threat against Toulouse (2-1) on Sunday, Evann Guessand was voted Aiglon of the Match.

For the third time in 2024, you have chosen Evann Guessand as Aiglon of the Match. Nominated after the matches against Metz (MD19, 1-0) and Monaco (MD21, 2-3), the striker who came through the ranks at the club once again walked away with the award after a successful performance in Toulouse, winning 37% of the votes. Despite the defeat, Le Gym's No29 once again showed the full range of his skills, from aggressive pressing to impact and technical ability. Starting for the 10th time in the last 11 league games, the man with five goals in all competitions this season was involved in the only goal of Nice's afternoon at the Stadium.

Featuring on the right side of the red-and-black 3-4-3, Guessand outpaced the Toulouse defence before sending in a subtle cross that Terem Moffi converted after a scramble in the area (0-1, 8'). Unstoppable when on the move, the attacking midfielder once again used his power, this time at full stretch, to break through the opposition defensive lines before stumbling against Guillaume Restes, the Violets goalkeeper (37').

Equally impressive physically (winning 8 duels) when he had to finish the game in the number 9 position after Moffi's departure, January's Aiglon of the month was able to put pressure on Toulouse's defence while remaining technically sound. With an 80% pass success rate, the striker showed himself to be at ease from set pieces, as illustrated by his link up with Jérémie Boga shortly after the hour mark, which was not enough to beat Restes (63').


Marcin Bulka, winner against Clermont (MD23, 0-0) last week, finished in second place with 36% of the vote. The last line of defence was impregnable for long periods, but made several outstanding saves, such as the one from Aron Dønnum's cross-shot (42') and Yann Gboho's fierce effort (50'). The Polish international then pulled off another magical save to keep out Stijn Spierings' fierce header just before the hour mark (59').

Finally, Melvin Bard rounded off the trio, with 7% of the votes.
