Florian Thauvin won the last election of the Olympian of the match in League 1 this season (1-1 OM Troyes, 38th day 2015-16). He beat Steven Fletcher and Lassana Diarra.
1 | Florian Thauvin – 39,55%

For several weeks, Florian Thauvin had been in the top 3 of your Olympians game. He is the man of the moment at OM and he once again demonstrated this in Troyes on the last day of the championship.
Very stirring on his right wing, well supported by Brice Djadjédjé, the OM striker was a real poison for the ESTAC defense by multiplying runs, dribbling, and centers (14, more than any other player on the field). He wasn't far from scoring a goal on a strong center by Alessandrini in the Dreyer goal, but his recovery has unfortunately crushed the bar.
The only downside, his tendency to sometimes carry the ball too much, involving many lost balls (31), but his generosity and selflessness, especially to relieve his teammates defensively more than compensates.

2 | Steven Fletcher – 29,68%

His superb goal into the top corner, a shot from the left corner as the first-line closed up after a very good service by Bouna Sarr, put OM back in the game. Son penalty obtenu à dix minutes du terme de la rencontre a donné l’espoir d’une victoire dans l’Aube. Unfortunately, Dreyer's parade forced Olympians forced to settle for a draw. Steven Fletcher was the key man in this Troyes-OM gmaes, in both joy and frustration.
Beyond his penalty, Fletch had other unlucky actions, costing the Troyes image last night.
In the role of number 9, higher on the field than when he plays with Michy Batshuayi, the Scottish striker hit less balls than usual, but showed that he "felt" the game, whatever his position.

3 | Lassana Diarra – 9%

Since his return to competition facing Angers two weeks ago, Lassana Diarra has gained strength and should be 100% ready for the final of the French Cup next Saturday at the Stade de France against PSG. Already attributed against Reims on the 37thday, Lass was once again in Troyes this Saturday, but alongside Mauricio Isla, back from injury on this occasion.
If he had been replaced in the 67th minute, by Abdelaziz Barrada, the international tricolor put more impact and commitment into his game than during his previous outings. For over an hour, he has continued to pester opposing midfielders, including recovering some good high balls on the field.
Also valuable in guiding the game, with nice accuracy on long passes, Diarra found his legs at the right time.
