Europe’s Tightest Defences: Chelsea & Everton Make the Grade

Caughtoffside ranks teams from Europe’s top five domestic leagues based on the stinginess of their defences. 

Football fans were left slightly underwhelmed with what the Champions League semi-finals served up this week.

Despite attacking stars such as Diego Costa, Cristiano Ronaldo, Arjen Robben and Frank Ribery taking the to the field, only one goal was scored in just over three hours of tense, tight and tactical play across Tuesday and Wednesday.

However, such defensive dominance should not really have come as much of a surprise. After all, the four sides in action – Atletico Madrid, Chelsea, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich – have all been notoriously stingy at the back this season.

In fact, all four feature in our latest list, which shows which sides have conceded the fewest league goals per game in the top divisions in England, Spain, Italy, Germany and France this term.
