Legs eleven! Stade Brestois 29 midfielder Haris Belkebla holds the record for the distance covered in a Ligue 1 Conforama match in season 2019-20.

When we think of the term endurance in Ligue 1 Conforama, one name springs to mind: Baptiste Santamaria. The Angers SCO midfielder is the player who travelled the most kilometres last season, and who is in the lead in 2019-20.

However, he does not hold the record for the distance covered in a match, as one of his former team-mates at Tours FC, Haris Belkebla, is particularly impressive in this respect. Since the start of the season, the Algerian international from Stade Brestois 29 has held the three best performances in terms of distance covered in a single match.

13.6 km against LOSC

Away to LOSC on December 6 (R17), the midfielder covered 13.6 km - the season record. The no7's ability to crunch the kilometres in a single match was no secret: he had already shown it at home against OL (13.4 km, R7) as well as against Paris Saint-Germain (13.3 km, R13).

All this in his first season in Ligue 1 Conforama, at the age of 26.

The top three (km):

1 Haris Belkebla: 13.6 (LOSC vs SB29 - R17)

2 Haris Belkebla: 13.4 (SB29 vs OL - R7)

3 Marshall Munetsi: 13.3 (ASM vs SdR - R27)

- Adrien Thomasson: 13.3 (ASM vs RCSA - R21)

- Haris Belkebla: 13.3 (SB29 vs PSG -R13)

- Lucas Tousart: 13.3 (SB29 vs OL - R7)
