2466 votes were cast to elect the Olympien of the game against Bastia. Here are the results.
1/ Michy Batshuayi - 32.64%

After replacing Abou Diaby at the 57th minute of the game, Michy Batshuayi was decisive: a wild card player the way he often has been during the past season. The Olympien forward pulled away to score his goal. Served by Cabella, the Belgian turned perfectly, the way he likes to do, and got past Leca. Batshuayi's evening the score gave the a Olympiens a little bit of hope. Unfortunately, the score remained there. With 32.64% of the votes cast, Michy Batshuayi is your Olympien of the game.

2/ Steve Mandanda - 13.31%

It's difficult to judge the performance of the Olympiens' captain, Steve Mandanda, who had almost nothing to do. He did well in the first period, but he let in two goals in the second half. The first was from his own team, the second was a penalty he conceded himself. Exempt from any criticism about his goals, Steve Mandanda still tried to rally quickly to help his forge ahead. The Olympiens' goalie is on the second step of the podium with 13.31%.

3/ Abou Diaby - 11.93%

A starting player for the first time this season, Abou Diaby would probably have preferred this encounter to go differently. The Olympien midfielder wasn't playing at 100% of his ability but he still showed a lot of promise for the future. Abou Diaby left at the 57th minute of play and was replaced by Michy Batshuayi. With 11.93% of the votes, Abou Diaby is on the 3rd step of the podium.
