The Stade Louis II in Fontvieille, the home stage of AS Monaco, was built to accommodate more than 18500 people. The French club is currently coached by the Portuguese Leonardo Jardim. The team is currently active in Ligue 1 (group stage - 36th matchday) in 17th place with only seven won games out of more than 30. AS Monaco, on the other hand, were eliminated in the group stage of the UEFA Champions League, despite no winners from a total of six matches in Group A and in the round of 32 against FC Metz of the Coupe de France. All in all, seven of 42 games were successfully completed, 57 goals scored and 69 goals conceded - most of them in Ligue 1. The group has the best result (4/6/9) with the 4-2-3-1 formation.
The football team has suffered a total of three defeats in the final minutes of this season, most recently 165 days ago against Montpellier HSC after two goals from Gaetan Laborde and Petar Skuletic in minutes 86 and 81. With an average height of 183cm, the AS Monaco kickers are no longer than their opponents. Instead of standing on the court from the very first minute, several professionals sat on the bench before the kick-off. Usually this had Loic Badiashile (keeper), Jordi Mboula and Samuel Grandsir (striker) as well as Pele, Benjamin Henrichs and Sofiane Diop (midfielder). In total, the group weighs 2134 kg, but on average even 5.4 kg less than the European average. With 61 kg this value is most exceeded by the 177cm jersey number 02 Fode Ballo-Toure.
AS Monaco's last triumph against Racing Strasbourg was on 9 March 2018, when the two groups met three more times. The most recent match was on 20 October 2018, with AS Monaco securing a 56 point difference against Racing Strasbourg in the 59 games since 1 September 1993. Adrien Silva, Kevin N'Doram and Youri Tielemans (midfielders), Gelson Martins and Stevan Jovetic (strikers), Danijel Subasic (goalkeeper) plus Benoit Badiashile Mukinayi (centre-back) were with 33 other footballers in the starting eleven this season. Youri Tielemans scored the biggest goal of the current season on 15 September 2018 in Ligue 1's fifth group-phase match against Toulouse FC from 21m in the 56th minute.
In AS Monaco, 76% prefer to shoot with their right foot. Sometimes it happens that a game is clarified only in the last ten minutes, as for example on 15 March 2019 against Lille OSC by a goal of the 83kg heavy Brazilian Carlos Vinicius 6 minutes before final whistle. In away games, the team likes to play against Racing Strasbourg, where the most frequent victories took place. The maximum lead of the first half of two goals was achieved by AS Monaco in the 34th group phase match of Ligue 1 against Stade Rennes. The French team finally lost 2-2. Recently, the team tried the 4-2-3-1 formation against Olympique Nimes in the Ligue 1, which resulted in a defeat (0:1).
AS Monaco scored the latest goal of the current season in the 97th minute against SC Amiens. Although the number of soccer players is about 24 years, the right-footed Brazilian Naldo has the lion's share. In the current season, the club has tested eleven different arrangements: 5-3-2, 4-4-2, 4-2-3-1, 4-3-3, 3-4-3, 4-1-2-3, 3-5-2, 4-1-4-1, 4-3-2-1, 3-4-1-2 and 4-5-1. In the first half, AS Monaco will tend to give up their early lead. In the UEFA Champions League's second group-phase match against Borussia Dortmund on 3 October 2018, the team conceded the biggest handicap of the current season of three points. The keepers of the group have done an excellent job in securing opposing goal shots.
Only 36% of the 13 goal attempts per match (on average) finally reached the corner. AS Monaco have failed to win two games in the current season (against AS Saint Etienne, Montpellier HSC) despite a lead in the first half. It took only 60 seconds until the group conceded the fastest goal of the current season. This was shot by Koke (Canet Roussillon) in the fifth UEFA Champions League group stage match. In ASM's own arena, Club Brugge has proved to be the strongest opponent, with two wins and one loss fought by AS Monaco. As good as against Montpellier HSC (48/23/4) the team was not able to show off against every opponent. The toughest opponent in fact is Stade Reims with six wins, nine draws and eight failures by AS Monaco.
