AS Monaco finished bottom of Ligue 1's disciplinary league last season after amassing a whopping 71 cards, closely followed by Olympique de Marseille, while - ironically - Angers SCO were the team in the French top flight that least got into trouble with referees.

Under first Leonardo Jardim and then Robert Moreno, Monaco picked up no fewer than eight red cards and 63 yellows during their 28 games of the 2019-20 Ligue 1 campaign.


Full-back Ruben Aguilar was sent off twice, while midfielder Adrien Silva registered the most cautions in the principality club's squad with eight. Tiémoué Bakayoko and Gelson Martins were sent off within seconds of each other in the 3-1 defeat at Nîmes Olympique in February, a first for Monaco since a double dismissal against derby rivals OGC Nice in 2008.


Marseille, who finished runners-up to Paris Saint-Germain, were shown just one card fewer for a tally of 70 in an overall league-wide total of 1096.


Champions PSG came in seventh on the list with 51 cards while the chart was topped by Stéphane Moulin's Angers with 44, one fewer than Dijon FCO who were second and 27 fewer than Monaco.
