With sixteen different goalscorers, the highest total in any of the five big European leagues alongside Arsenal and Bayern Munich, Leonardo Jardim's men boast some serious attacking prowess. Second in the table going into their 26th match of the campaign, as highlighted by l'Equipe in today's edition, the French champions have 64 goals to their name, three more than Liverpool and Juve (61 goals), and currently sit in the podium places in a ranking dominated by Man City (79 goals).
AS Monaco's current top scorer (who is injured), Falcao, has scored 20 goals this season in Ligue 1, while Steven Jovetic and Adama Diakhaby are taking up the goalscoring mantle:
- Stevan Jovetic has scored three goals on his last three starts in Ligue 1, against Lille on 22 September 2017, and a double at Angers last Saturday.
- Adama Diakhaby has been involved in four goals in his last six starts in Ligue 1 (two goals, two assists). He set up a goal in the reverse fixture on 13 August 2017.
A threat from all sides
Seven of Monaco's last eight league goals have been scored by different players (Fabinho (2), Keita Balde (2), Falcao, Rony Lopes (2), Butelle o.g., Jovetic (2) and Raggi). The Red & Whites boast a total of 16 different scorers - including eight defenders (Jemerson (2), Glik (3), Sidibé (2), Jorge, Raggi) - more than any other team in France.
Spectacle guaranteed with the Red & Whites, who have bagged at least four goals on seven occasions in Ligue 1 this season - only Manchester City and PSG (eight times each) have done better in the Big Five European leagues.
