UCL watch: Free-scoring Monaco top Ligue 1

FALCAO: Back among the goals

FALCAO: Back among the goals

With Manchester City's Champions League tie against AS Monaco just over a month away, we take a look at the Ligue 1 side's form.

City’s Round of 16 opponents remain European football’s top goal-scorers with 60 goals from 20 games, averaging three goals per league game.

It is undoubtedly The Red and Whites' potency in front of goal that has been the bedrock of their challenge and they returned to the top of the table at the weekend following a 4-1 win away to fifth-placed Marseille.

The victory saw Monaco climb to the top of the table for the first time since late September, with long-time leaders Nice surprisingly held 0-0 by bottom side Metz.

Top scorer Radamel Falcao recorded his 12th goal of the campaign as his team surpassed last season’s total league goals with 18 games to spare!

Thomas Lemar gave Monaco the lead before Falcao doubled the Red and Whites’ lead.

Marseille halved the deficit before Bernardo Silva scored twice to complete a 4-1 thrashing.

Monaco, chasing a first championship for 17 years, now lead the table on goal difference from Nice with Paris St Germain still ominously tracking the top two just three points behind.

Monaco’s title hopes will be a little clearer at the end of the month with back-to-back games against PSG and Nice coming up.
