The Ben Yedder-Volland-Diop attack, the second most decisive trio in Ligue 1


The three offensive players of AS Monaco who have accumulated the most goals and assists this season, form the most decisive trio of the elite behind that of Strasbourg. Explanations.

They are in very good shape at the moment. All three decisive in the victory against FC Metz this Sunday at the Stade Louis-II (4-0), Wissam Ben Yedder, Kevin Volland and Sofiane Diop are no strangers to the good dynamics of the Red and White. Author of his 52nd goal with AS Monaco against the men of Frédéric Antonetti, the Monegasque captain only needed two strikes to shake the nets for the 9th time leaving the bench in 2021. Or more than any other Big 5 player, according to data from our partner Opta.

Kevin Volland, all-terrain “mister”

Scorer on penalty after having been a decisive double passer against Angers on Wednesday (3-1 success), the German striker scored his fourth achievement of the season in Ligue 1. Now involved in nine top goals (4 goals , 5 assists), he showed he was back in great shape. Also galvanized by his recent good performances in the selection, in particular by his fabulous double in November, Sofiane Diop completes an attacking trio which has been firing on all cylinders for a month.

Involved in 96% of Monegasque goals

Author of the opening scoring from the second minute of play against the Garnets, the fastest goal for AS Monaco since 2017, the number 37 again stood out at the start of the second period by offering the third goal to Gelson Martins (3-0, 57th). In all, the three offensive players of the Principality club have now been affected in 26 league goals (18 goals and 8 assists)… out of the 27 goals scored by the Red and White! That is 96% of the achievements.

Second best trio of the elite

It is today the highest total of the elite for an attacking trio, just behind the Strasbourg offensive line Ajorque-Diallo-Thomasson (31 goals). Even PSG with Mbappé, Messi and Neymar (25 goals) and Stade Rennais, the fittest team in the top 5 in Ligue 1, with Laborde, Terrier and Tait (25 goals) are not doing any better.

This shows if our three Monegasques are influential in the results of AS Monaco, undefeated for 6 matches in the league, and winner of their last two outings. Proof also that the Yedderland duo, which had raged 50 times last season in the top flight (36 goals and 14 assists), made small. Well done gentlemen!
