When a team has a complete back four, they can confidently count on themselves for the title race. Defense is where it starts and where it ends for any of the football teams, and a good defense can make or break the starting 11. There are some teams who have been successful in stopping the opposition’s attacks. Here are the top 5 teams with the best defenses in Europe this season so far.
Ever since the arrival of Virgil Van Dijk, Liverpool have been extremely powerful in terms of having the most consistent defense in the world. Having conceded only 4 in the League so far, the Reds have made sure that no attacking options could be executed. With Van Dijk being the leader and the likes of Joe Gomez and Dejan Lovren, Liverpool’s defense is a true example of how defenders should really be lining up.
4. Manchester City
With the recent inclusion of Aymeric Laporte, Manchester City’s defense is more than a complete package. The veterans Nicolas Otamendi and Vincent Kompany often make appearances and have been the most important defenders in the club’s history. The defending champions have conceded only 4 goals in the Premier League this season so far.
3. Paris Saint Germain
PSG have scored 41 goals and conceded just 7 in 12 Ligue 1 games. The French giants are an attacking threat to the opponents that they lack time to cause trouble on their defense.
