Who was your Olympien of the game against Montpellier? More than 5000 of you voted. Here are the results.
1/ Georges-Kévin Nkoudou - 37.56%

All he needed was a stroke of genius to tip the game. If OM is bringing the three points to Marseilles, it's due to Georges-Kévin Nkoudou. After a one-two with Alessandrini, GK was able to overcome Pionnier with a powerful left kick at the 68th minute. Reassigned to no. 9 after Antoine Rabillard left, Nkoudou showed his effectiveness and realism in scoring the only Olympien shot on target. The new tricolored Hope showed that he didn't need a lot of the ball to challenge the opposition.
With 37.52% of the vote, Georges-Kévin Nkoudou is your Olympien of the game.

2/ Steve Mandanda - 15.65%

Steve Mandanda had to miss the game against Lille due to a hamstring injury. Marseilles' captain made his return to the Olympien goal in the game against Montpellier. Though he wasn't challenged that much, except for the kick from Jonas Martin that he stopped, Mandanda looked calm for every one of his saves and was once again impeccable.
The Olympiens' captain is on the second step of the podium with 15.66% of the vote.

3/ Alaixys Romao - 13.52%

At ease when the ball went out of bounds, Alaixys Romao was essential in the recovery time. His partnership with Mauricio Isla worked very well and the two Olympiens got to the ball often.
Romao even broke through Montpellier's defense several times, and should have gotten a penalty coming back from the break but the referee said nothing.
With 13.65% of the votes, Alaixys Romao is on the third step of the podium.
