Bayern Munich boast Europe's best defence

News Oga| Gossip Blog

Bayern Munich boast the best defence in Europe's top five leagues this season, with the reigning Bundesliga champions leading the Huawei Team Ranking ahead of Juventus and Barcelona.

Pep Guardiola's team have been in superb form at the back since their shock 4-1 defeat to Wolfsburg in the first game after the winter break, conceding just twice in five matches and averaging only 0.46 goals conceded per game in 2014-15 as a whole.

Their crushing at the hands of Bas Dost and Kevin De Bruyne accounts for more than a third of the goals they have conceded in the league this season, with just 11 beating Manuel Neuer in 24 contests.

Juventus have Europe's second-best defence at an average of 0.54 goals conceded per match, with Gianluigi Buffon beaten only 14 times in 26 encounters.

And Barcelona rank third with an average of 0.62 goals conceded per game following their 6-1 win over Rayo Vallecano. Claudio Bravo has kept 14 clean sheets in La Liga in the process.

Southampton have the Premier League's best defence having conceded only 0.71 goals per game, while Serie A outfit Roma have allowed 0.73 goals a match.

Monaco sit sixth in the table with an average of 0.74 goals conceded per game and Ligue 1 rivals Lyon and Saint-Etienne jointly occupy seventh place with 0.79 against per match.

Chelsea and Borussia Monchengladbach complete the top 10 with an average of 0.81 and 0.83 goals conceded per game respectively.

At the bottom end of the table, Bundesliga sides Eintracht Frankfurt and Werder Bremen have the worst defensive records in Europe's top five leagues. Both have conceded 49 goals in 24 games at an average of 2.04 per match.

Parma have Serie A's worst defence with an average of 1.96 goals conceded per game and Rayo Vallecano, Levante (both 1.88 goals against per game), QPR (1.75) and Toulouse (1.68) have suffered the most at the back in their respective divisions.
