Roma register least expected goals allowed in Top 5 leagues

Roma’s defence continues to prove itself among the very best in Europe.

Jose Mourinho and his men have now registered the least expected goals (xG) allowed in all of Europe’s Top 5 leagues, ahead of teams like Barcelona, Athletic Club, Real Sociedad, Bayern Munich and Manchester City.

The backline consisting of Chris Smalling, Roger Ibanez, Gianluca Mancini and Rui Patricio have only allowed 12.9 xG in 19 games this season, reports AS Roma Data, which indicates only 0.67 xG in 90 minutes.
