The biggest win of this midweek round of action belonged to Bordeaux, who destroyed Nimes 6-0. Josh Maja (10) and Otavio (10) are straight into our best line-up after their perfect 10 scores, with the former scoring a hat-trick and the Brazilian scoring two crackers. Team-mates Youssouf Sabaly (7.8) and Vukasin Jovanovic (8.3) make the cut too after the successful clean sheet.

Saint-Etienne were impressive too as they moved up to fifth after defeating Nice 4-1. Denis Bouanga (9.2) and Romain Hamouma (9.4) were outstanding in that game, scoring three goals and recording two assists between them. Wesley Fofana (7.8) also features after his towering header.

Joining Otavio in midfield are Cristian Battocchio (10), who scored a remarkable hat-trick for Brest as they demolished Strasbourg 5-0, and Valentin Rongier (8.7), who won 13 duels, 7/9 tackles, and 10 ball recoveries for Marseille in the victory over Angers.

Thiago Silva (8.4) slots in at the centre of defence, with Edouard Mendy (7.7) in goal after their respective clean sheets.
