He had yet to score away this season, but Kevin Volland was quick to find the net against Dijon to break his duck. After scoring five times at Stade-Louis-II, the German striker allowed AS Monaco to bring three points home from this trip to the Stade Gaston-Gérard.
Sublimely picked out by Wissam Ben Yedder, after a double one two with Sofiane Diop then his captain, the Monegasque number 31 did not hesitate to open the scoring in the 15th minute of play. Always eager to involve his teammates, for Volland’s sixth goal of the season, it was his third on a pass from his captain.
