Five AS Monaco players had scored twice since the start of this Ligue 1 season. Now there are just two, Joao Moutinho and Valère Germain, the third being Radamel Falcao.
Dimitar Berbatov had not netted since Ligue 1 matchday 4 against LOSC, but found his goalscoring touch once again to convert a penalty, which he had earned himself. With three goals this season, he is now the club's leading goalscorer, alongside Yannick Ferreira Carrasco.
With an assist in the previous home game against Caen, the Red Devil had also equalled his total from last season. He's now done the same with his goal record. With three goals to his name, he has matched his return from 2013-2014. And in fine style too, as his majestic strike against Lens is sure to feature in the Top Goals of Ligue 1 matchday 16.
