The sides could barely have made more contrasting starts of the season with Bayer Leverkusen scoring goals galore in their early-season games. Monaco, on the other hand, have won just one of 5 matches in Ligue 1 so far, but have scored at least one goal in every game. With the German side having banged in 22 goals in their 6 matches so far this term, they will arrive in the principality with confidence flowing. Leverkusen has also scored in their last 20 away games in all competitions.
