They are not only at the top of the French league, and top scorers in the Big 5 leagues. In their data, our Rouge et Blanc also stand out for their physical abilities at the very promising start of the 2023-2024 season. This was examined on the Ligue 1 Uber Eats website, and the performances of Adi Hütter‘s team have been nothing less than impressive.
Among the best “marathoners” 🏃♂
Based on data collected by Stats Perform, we learn that AS Monaco are in the lead (or almost) in many categories. For example, the team averages 121.5 kilometers covered per match over the first four matches of the season (3 wins, 1 draw). Only Lens, whom we had beaten just before the international break at the Stade Louis-II (3-0), have done better in the top flight (121.8).
Caio “Lewis” Henrique, king of the sprint! 🥇
It’s a sign of the generosity shown by the teammates of Caio Henrique in their efforts. The Brazilian wingback, who has just celebrated his first cap with the Seleção, has also impressed in this stats data. The assist leader in Ligue 1 and Europe has four assists already, and the Monegasque number 12 has also recorded an average of 30.5 sprints per 90 minutes. It’s the best total in the league ahead of Strasbourg’s Emanuel Emegha (29.75).
Speeds of over 35 km/h 💨
But Caio does not stop there, since he is also part of the Top 10 fastest players in the elite. The Brazilian wingback has been clocked at 35.64 km/h since the start of the season, only a few tenths behind Jonathan Clauss, leader in this area (36.11). Moreover, in terms of the number of sprints completed, AS Monaco as a whole also place on the podium behind… Lens!
A collective mindset 🤝
With 165.3 runs of this type accumulated on average per match, the Principality club is in fact behind only the vice-champions of France (168.3). It’s all confirmation that the preseason paid off this summer, as the Monégasque manager recently expressed. The team thus lead the table in terms of points, but also in effort. Well done lads! 👏
