Despite the defeat against PSG in the final of the 2015-16 French Cup (2-4), many of you voted for the Olympian of the match at the Stade de France. Florian Thauvin was very far ahead, in front of Mandanda and Diarra, who were shoulder to shoulder.
1 | Florian Thauvin – 75,06%

He rang the Olympian revolt by bringing both teams 1-1, after taking perfect action. Against PSG at the Stade de France, Florian Thauvin played one of his best matches at OM. Very active in all areas of the field the Olympian striker was the number 1 danger for the Parisian defense. His goal was to give hope to an entire people and his mad race to the turn of the Marseille fans remains one of the strongest images of the evening.
Often criticized, Thauvin never cheated with the OM jersey on his back. His sacrifice has always been flawless and his final match at the French Cup is a perfect illustration.
If his good will was not enough, Flo still deserves to occupy the top spot of the "Olympian of the match," which he has monopolized regularly in recent weeks.

2 | Lassana Diarra – 8,57%

He is one of the few players to have held a candle to the PSG players. Lassana Diarra did everything he could to not let his team sink. His impact and gameplay considerably upset the development of actions of the capital club, especially in the first period when Rabiot, Matuidi, and Stambouli were rarely there.
Often looking for unbalanced forward pass, he has been tied with Florian Thauvin.
If in the last 45 minutes Lass has seemed more borrowed, he has not been helped by his partners, who are much less mobile and more dispersed.

3 | Steve Mandanda – 8,43%

At the end of the meeting, Steve Mandanda regretted not having been decisive against the Parisian armada, but no one will blame him. None of the four goals conceded by OM at the Stade de France are due to him and the rest of the time he was never really endangered by the men of Laurent Blanc.
A frustrating game for a goalkeeper, especially ifas he announced to the microphone of OMtv, this match was his last under the colors of Olympique Marseille, "El Fenomeno" he deserved a different exit after nine seasons at the highest level with OM.
Whatever the case, at the time to greet him, the OM captain received a standing ovation at the height of his talent and loyalty.
