    1. Juventus, Italy: 0.41 average goals conceded per game (5 goals in 12 games)
    2. Bayern Munich, Germany: 0.44 average goals conceded per game (4 goals in 9 games)
    3. Manchester United, England: 0.50 average goals conceded per game (4 goals in 8 games)
    4. Monaco, France: 0.54 average goals conceded per game (6 goals in 11 games)
    4= Paris Saint-Germain, France: 0.54 average goals conceded per game (6 goals in 11 games)
    6. Everton, England: 0.70 average goals conceded per game (7 goals in 10 games)
    7. AS Roma, Italy: 0.72 average goals conceded per game (8 goals in 11 games)
    7. Saint Étienne, France: 0.72 average goals conceded per game (8 goals in 11 games)
    9. Barcelona, Spain: average goals conceded per game 0.75 (9 goals in 12 games)

    9= Villarreal, Spain: 0.75 average goals conceded per game (9 goals in 12 games)
