The numbers that prove it’s an earned victory

The same character that had been necessary to return with a success in the 99th Côte d’Azur  before the international break. A high-level performance in the second period which was reflected in the statistics of this shock of the 11th day of Ligue 1. Here’s a look back on the key stats from this victory against the Parisians, who are league leaders (3-2), courtesy of our partner STATS.



AS Monaco are undefeated in their last 9 matches at home in Ligue 1 (6 wins, 3 draws), their best run since December 2017-August 2018 (13). Only Lyon are doing as well in the top flight at present.


Kevin Volland has scored 4 goals in his last 3 Ligue 1 matches with AS Monaco. Only Wissam Ben Yedder (6) has found the net more often than him for  the Red and Whites in the top flight this season.


This is the number of “expected goals” for the Red and Whites. It’s a very high figure and well above the Parisians’ for this match (1.88), which is also much higher than the average per match for AS Monaco since the start of the season (1.98).


Sofiane Diop recovered eleven balls against Paris Saint-Germain (the same as Rafinha), the highest total among Monegasque players. Among all the players in the match, only Colin Dagba had more recoveries. Note that Caio Henrique recovered seven balls in just 49 minutes of play.



Cesc Fàbregas had both a goal and an assist for the 1st time in a match in the top 5 European leagues since February 25, 2017, with Chelsea against Swansea (1 goal, 1 assist). It was the very first time he has done this after coming on in his career in the European top 5.


In addition to scoring, the Spanish midfielder made three passes leading to a shot, in just 49 minutes of play. This is the highest total of the match, tied with Youssouf Fofana.


Niko Kovac’s players covered 110.6 kilometers in this match, eight kilometers more than the distance covered by the 16 Parisians (102.2).


This is only the 2nd time under the QSI era that Paris have lost after leading by 2 goals in a Ligue 1 match, following a loss on January 10, 2015 in Bastia (2-4).
