Which are the best counter-attacking teams in Europe? (2)

Published 3 Comments

Ligue 1

Not a great deal of counter-attacking goals in France, and that could be partly explained by the possession stats.

Games in Ligue 1, on average, are much closer than say La Liga or the Premier League, at least when it comes to possession. 

The range spread from the top (Lyon 58.2) to the lowest (Bastia 42.7) is just 16 points. Only Serie 'A' has a lower range.

Rennes, comfortable in mid-table, have the most in France with 5 goals. But the French side have just 20 goals from open play. The rest are from set-pieces (15 free-kicks and 1 penalty).
