A place in the table, attacking prowess, away fans... AS Monaco's (very) good numbers on the road
With their victory against RC Lens on Sunday (2-3), the Rouge et Blanc have just recorded their sixth away win in 12 matches. Here's a look back at AS Monaco’s good numbers on the road.

AS Monaco confirms its ease away from home. Thanks to their latest win in Lens this Sunday at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis (2-3), the Rouge et Blanc have 22 points out of 36 possible, making them the second best away team in Ligue 1 behind Paris Saint-Germain (27). And here are some statistics that prove it. 📊

A positive record 📈

With its positive record of six victories, four draws and only two defeats in 12 matches, the Club therefore shows its desire to seek points away from home. From the start of the season, the team went on an undefeated run by beating Clermont (2-4) and drawing against Nantes (3-3) and Lorient (2-2). This was before an impressive win away to Reims (1-3), just before the October international break.

The link among these three of the first four matches? They conceded the opener but managed to pick up points at the end of the match. La Diagonale  is also the Ligue 1 team which has taken the most after conceding the first goal (14 points).

Good results against big teams 💪

This strength of character which is also visible against the sides in the top half of the table. AS Monaco is in fact the team in the league which has scored the most points against them (22). In addition to the home victories against Lens (3-0), Marseille (3-2) and Brest (2-0), there are also away victories against Rennes, Nice, and Lens (1-2 ; 2-3 ; 2-3 respectively) and a draw in Marseille (2-2) to include.

Best attack in Ligue 1 🔝

The Principality club can also boast of having the best away attack in the league with 26 goals. The teammates of Takumi Minamino, heroic against Le Sang et Or, are ahead of Paris (23) and Reims (17) in this area. It’s an impressive total possible thanks to the fact that many players in the squad have found the net since 10 of them have scored outside of the Stade Louis-II.

Among them, we find Wissam Ben Yedder who has scored seven times, Folarin Balogun with four goals, Takumi Minamino and his three, followed by Vanderson, Maghnes Akliouche, Aleksandr Golovin and Denis Zakaria (two each). As for Myron Boadu, Ismail Jakobs and Youssouf Fofana, they have also scored once away from home.

The away end, partout toujours 🏟️

But if all this is possible, the AS Monaco players owe it in part to the supporters present in the away end, who are always there! From Clermont, during the first day, to the match in Lens, no less than 7,650 Monegasque fans have been present in the stands during the team’s 12 away matches in the league. At the Stade Bollaert-Delelis, no less than 800 supporters came on a Sunday at 1 p.m. in 7 degree weather.

It’s good that there are many of them on each trip to encourage us. They give us support and we need that on the road to get good results.
Wilfried SingoOn the away end in Lens

With an average of 637 supporters per match and attendances in Reims, Lille and Paris which exceeded 1,000 fans, AS Monaco can therefore count on its most loyal supporters to encourage them throughout France. This joy has not been hidden for the players either, as Wilfried Singo expressed before the match against RC Lens. “They give us support and we need that on the road to obtain good results,” declared the AFCON winner.

Building on last season 🔙

This passion is widely acclaimed by the LFP and its “Grandstands Championship” where the Principality club is second in the loyalty of its away supporters (20) with only one point behind Lens (21).

Still undefeated away from home in the season’s second hald, AS Monaco must still play five matches away from home against Strasbourg, Metz, Brest, Lyon and Montpellier and thus confirm these statistics. It’s been a habit season after season since last season, the Rouge et Blanc were the third-best team in the league on the road. Bravo guys! 🇲🇨
