Bayern have best defence of Europe
Goal teams up with Huawei to provide you with all the key statistics Europe’s five biggest leagues have to offer in 2014-15
Bayern Munich have Europe’s best defence, with the Bundesliga champions leading the Huawei Team Ranking ahead of Barcelona and Juventus.
The Allianz Arena side were somewhat surprisingly beaten 2-0 by Bayer Leverkusen at the weekend, yet have kept a clean sheet in four of their last five league games and Pep Guardiola’s men boast an average of just 0.48 goals conceded per game.
Barcelona, meanwhile, have been equally impressive at the back with an average of 0.54 goals conceded per match so far this season. The Catalans have not conceded in their last four La Liga matches and their defence has been beaten a mere 19 times in 35 encounters.
Juventus complete the podium with an average of 0.56 goals conceded per game following their hard-fought 1-0 win over Sampdoria at the weekend, with the freshly crowned Serie A champions keeping 19 clean sheets in the process.
Monaco have Ligue 1’s best defence with an average of 0.69 goals conceded per game and occupy fourth place, ahead of Atletico Madrid, Borussia Monchengladbach and Roma, all with an average of 0.74 goals conceded.
Chelsea and Valencia sit joint eighth in the ranking with an average of 0.77 goals conceded per game, with Southampton and Saint-Etienne completing the top 10 with an average of 0.80 goals conceded per match.
At the bottom end of the table, Bundesliga outfit Eintracht Franfurt and Serie A side Parma have the worst defences of Europe’s top five leagues, both of them conceding an average of 1.94 goals per encounter.
Finally, Granada (1.83 goals conceded per clash), QPR (1.74) and Reims (1.74) having the biggest problems at the back in Spain, England and France, respectively.
