The 2019-20 season has come to an unexpected halt due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The top 5 European leagues have been suspended to avoid the players getting infected by COVID-19.

During this time off the football pitch, Opta has analysed the best defenders in Europe’s top 5 leagues: LaLiga, Serie A, Premier League, Bundesliga and Ligue 1.

Opta has examined nine metrics for a defender. Most tackles won, best tackle success, most duels won, best duel success, most aerials won, best aerial success, most clearances, most interceptions and most blocks.

728x90-EN-BENEFIT-SEASON

The players who have made at least 10 league appearances this season and completed 20 actions in each category have only been taken into consideration to avoid any unfair imbalance in the results.
