Bordeaux’s Maja and Saint-Etienne’s Bouanga make Ligue 1 Team of the Week

Bordeaux forward Josh Maja and Saint-Etienne star Denis Bouanga have been named in the Ligue 1 Team of the Week.

The 20-year-old Nigerian forward Maja grabbed his first career hat-trick to help the Girondins secure a 6-0 demolition of Nimes on Tuesday.

His performance saw him join Super Eagles legends Peter Odemwingie, John Utaka, and Victor Agali on the exclusive list of Nigerians who have scored thrice in a match in the French top-flight.

Bouanga, meanwhile, produced a man-of-the-match display in their 4-1 victory against Nice at Stade Geoffroy Guichard on Wednesday.
