It wasn't a vintage week for attackers in Ligue 1, as no player scored more than one goal over the course of the round. The most effective forward was Angelo Fulgini (8.6), who scored once but whose main attribute was his dribbling, as he completed more (9) than anyone else in the league. Completing the forward line is Maxwell Cornet (8.1) after his goal and assist for Lyon, and Gaetan Laborde (8.1).

The midfield is made up by the top passers and tacklers - Sanson (8.4), Chavalerin (8.5) and Savanier (8.2)

Hassane Kamara (8) and Hamari Traore (8.2) feature at full-back, with the latter making more ball recoveries (15) than any other player.

In the centre of defence, Dante (7.5) partners Damien da Silva (7.5), with Benoit Costil (7.6) in goal after making six saves for Bordeaux.
