With two goals in April against Dijon and Saint-Etienne, Dimitri Payet has demonstrated match after match his rise in power since his return to OM last January.
In the game, Dim' does not resist to the effort, it defends, attacks, provokes, dribbles, centers, strikes, passes, ... The number 11 Olympien poises a challenge for the opposing defense team. He is focused and frees spaces for his teammates. A real specialised leader who also asummes his responsibilities with his team Dimitri Payet did all he could to get back to OM. Today he is happy and it shows.

3 | Yohann Pelé - 4.42%

As the Olympiens remained undefeated in April, they owe it largely to Yohann Pelé. With three new clean sheets, bringing his total to 17 since the start of the season, the Albatross reigns supreme on his goal line. His season has been exceptional
