The key stats of the first six l1 games!
It's the international break, which gives us a chance to highlight the stand-out stats the Aiglons produced in their opening six Ligue 1 matches of the season.
Four Nice players have played all 540 minutes since the start of the season: Walter Benitez, Dante, Hassane Kamara and Pierre Lees-Melou.
With two goals and two assists, Amine Gouiri has been involved in four of the seven goals the team has scored. That rises to six out of seven when you take into account his pass that was slightly deflected — and so not counted as an assist — for Kasper Dolberg to score in the 2-0 win at Strasbourg, and the role he played in Khephren Thuram's goal against Nantes (2-1).
And the one goal Gouiri has not had a hand in? Dolberg's penalty opener against Strasbourg…
Walter Benitez has registered two clean sheets (vs. Strasbourg and Bordeaux), and was named Aiglon of the Month for September.
Last season, he had to wait until the 12th game of the campaign and the 2-0 win against Reims to record his first clean sheet.
With the opening goal against Nantes (2-1) at 36 years, 11 months and 14 days, Dante is currently the oldest goalscorer this season in L1. The captain has scored twice in his last four league games, as many as in his 70 previous top-flight appearances.
The number of passes completed by Le Gym, the second-most in the division behind PSG (4095).
Les Aiglons' average possession over their six games. It reached 73% against Nantes, a match in which Le Gym had a man advantage from the third minute. Only PSG enjoy more time on the ball in L1 this term (61.67%).
