Wissam Ben Yedder is your MVP by IQONIQ against Strasbourg
IQONIQ presents the Red and White MVP of this 5th matchday of Ligue 1 Uber Eats: Wissam Ben Yedder!

With 21 goals scored since the start of the 2019/2020 season, no other French player has scored more goals than him in the 5 major leagues. He is Wissam Ben Yedder, who will be a wakeup call for you! Joint-top scorer in Ligue 1 last season, the Red and Whites’ captain has regained all of his trademark efficiency in front of the opponent’s goal. Having been close to opening his tally during the first three matches against Reims, Metz and Nantes, the AS Monaco number 9 scored for the first time in the 2020/2021 season last week, in Rennes. And he did it again on this fifth matchday, starting in the ninth minute of play …

On a long ball from Ruben Aguilar, Wissam Ben Yedder played a one-two with Kevin Volland — the relationship between the Frenchman and the German is perfect, and AS Monaco opened the scoring thanks to a superb shot across goal from their captain. The AS Monaco striker would strike again at the start of the second period, once again courtesy of Kevin Volland. The summer recruit played the ball onto the right foot of Wissam Ben Yedder who only had to slot home a simple finish to register his first double in the top flight since December 21, 2019. “In the area, he is fantastic,enthused his manager, Niko Kovac, after the match.

With two goals scored, you elected him, with 61% of the vote, as the IQONIQ MVP of this match against Strasbourg, ahead of the Red and Whites’ other scorer in the match, Ruben Aguilar (27.1%). It’s a double dose of MVP for our captain after doing the same against Rennes
