Stats, comebacks, attendance… The (very) good numbers of AS Monaco at the Stade Louis-II
Winners of their fifth home match last weekend against Stade Brestois (2-0), the Rouge et Blanc confirmed that they continue to be the strongest side in Ligue 1 at home. Here's the proof in a few stats.

One more at home. By winning a very closely-fought duel against Brest on Sunday at the Stade Louis-II (2-0), our Monégasques moved to a place among the leaders of Ligue 1 at home. It was their fifth win of the season in the Principality, which shows how irresistible Adi Hütter’s side have been are on home soil. And here are some statistics that prove it.

A (almost) perfect start 👌

Against the Bretons, AS Monaco therefore mace it 5 out of 6 by obtaining a fifth victory in the top flight in the 2023-2024 season in Fontvieille (Strasbourg, Lens, Marseille, Metz, Brest). Fifteen points at home makes the Rouge et Blanc the best side in the top flight at home. And if we extend to the year 2023, the Rocher club has won a total of 11 of its 17 matches at home (1 draw, 5 defeats). Only Lille (12) has had more success over this length of time.

An attack in top form ⚽

To get these points, the team had to be efficient in front of goal. And that’s exactly what the teammates of Aleksandr Golovin, nominated for the UNFP trophy for the player of the month of October and top scorer at Stade Louis-II with four goals already (Lens: 1, Metz: 2, Brest: 1) did.

With 13 goals scored at home, the Monegasques have the third-best attack at home, just behind PSG (15) and Rennes (14). That’s an average of 2.2 goals/match, knowing that they have scored three goals every other match.

Despite his size, it is not one of his best qualities to impose himself in the air and score with a header from a set piece (smile)! But in this situation, he took advantage of the very good corner taken by Golo’.

Scorers are everywhere 🎯

Speaking of goalscorers, Denis Zakaria on Sunday became the 11th player in the squad to have scored at least once in the top flight this season. This is obviously more than any other club in Ligue 1 (ahead of Rennes at 10). And among these eleven scorers, eight were able to do so at home, perfectly distributed or almost between the three sectors: defense – midfield – attack (Minamino, Ben Yedder, Singo, Golovin, Maripán, Akliouche, Balogun, Zakaria).

Clean sheet mode 🧤

Conversely, Philipp Köhn and his teammates have conceded very little on the shores of the Mediterranean. With only four goals conceded (0.7/match), AS Monaco is one of the most solid teams in Ligue 1 at home. The proof is that the Swiss international goalkeeper has already had three clean sheets in six matches after the victory against Brest.

I'm happy that my team has been able to turn things around since the start of the season because we have had 11 points like this. We have to be patient in our style of play. It is very positive to change the trend of a match.

The art of the comeback 🔄

This is the specialty this season! Often having been pegged back at the start of a match, the Rouge et Blanc know how to respond. By turning the situation around against Olympique de Marseille (a 3-2 win after having been pegged back in the first minute) and agains against Metz (2-1 after going behind in the fourth minute), the latter in fact have picked up at home six points having conceded the opening goal, out of the eleven points earned from this situation since the start of the season (a Ligue 1 record).

A crowd at the ready 🏟

To be so effective at the Stade Louis-II, the AS Monaco players have benefited from another strong pillar of support: their fans! Over the first six round of Ligue 1 at home, the ground has welcomed almost… 9,200 spectators on average!

Very clearly. We heard them throughout the match, they helped us a lot, pushed us. It is also thanks to them that we won today. We are very happy that they came and we hope that they will come more often from now on.

This is around 45% more than last season after as many rounds. This unwavering support has carried Adi Hütter’s men, like against Brest where nearly 5,000 children from amateur clubs in the region were present.*LFP Data
