The stats behind eight straight wins for the Rouge et Blanc
Thanks to their victory in Lille on Friday (2-1), AS Monaco extended its number of consecutive wins to eight. Here are the main stats to remember after this impressive result thanks to our partner Opta.

…and they don’t stop! Winners in Lille (2-1)  Friday to kick off Matchday 36 in Ligue 1, AS Monaco continued their superb run with their eighth victory in a row, allowing the team to continue the battle for a European place. After this match, here are some of the key stats thanks to our partner Opta.


Monaco have won their last eight Ligue 1 matches, the best current run in the top 5 major European leagues and the Club’s best run in the top flight since February-August 2017 (16). They are also the best team in Ligue 1 in 2022, with 36 points (11 wins, 3 draws, 3 losses).

Big game hunting

Monaco have won 26 points in Ligue 1 this season against clubs in the current Top 10 (7 wins, 5 draws, 5 losses); only Paris have done better (30).

Don’t tell me how to do my job

Aurélien Tchouameni is the first non-attacking Monaco player to score a double in Ligue 1 since Almamy Touré on November 29, 2015 in Marseille. He has scored his five top-flight goals in three different ways (three right-footed, one headed, one left-footed).

Wissam hits form

Wissam Ben Yedder recorded his fifth assist this season in Ligue 1, each to a different teammate (Diop, Golovin, Caio Henrique, Jean Lucas and Tchouameni). Involved in 26 goals in 2021-2022 in the top flight (21 goals, 5 assists), the Monaco striker is only one away from his best total in a season in the European Top 5 leagues (27, with Sevilla in 2018-2019 and Monaco in 2020-2021).

Sharing is caring

Caio Henrique has eight assists this season in Ligue 1, the highest total for a Monaco defender in a season since Opta began collecting this data (2006-2007).

Thou shalt not pass

Alexander Nübel has conceded just one goal in his last 15 shots on target. The German goalkeeper has managed 11 clean sheets in Ligue 1 this season; only Walter Benitez (14) and Matz Sels (12) have done better.

Big nights

With this latest win Friday in Lille, Monaco have lost only one of their last nine trips to the reigning champion in Ligue 1 (three wins, five draws).
