The French international striker had already distinguished himself Wednesday night in Toulouse, and he was at it again against Amiens, scoring a liberating first goal, then being involved in the third, scored by Keita Baldé. Wissam Ben Yedder is well on his way to breaking his personal record for league goals in a season in Ligue 1 (17), but also his personal best in a league, the 18 goals he scored with Sevilla last season in La Liga.
61′ ⚽️ BEN YEDDER sur corner d’une magnifique reprise !

23 shots on target, 11 goals
It happened once, but it’s not customary for him; the current top scorer in Ligue 1 missed the goal by a few millimeters early in the second period, before opening the scoring ten minutes later with a supersonic volley. This statistic really summarizes the effectiveness of “WBY”: in 14 Ligue 1 matches this season, Monaco’s No. 9 has shot 40 times, 23 on target, and 11 of which have turned into goals. Basically, Wissam Ben Yedder scores 1 goal with every fourth shot and when he those shots are on goal, the ratio is reduced to 1 goal every 2 shots!
