The 2017/18 season has already thrown up a couple of surprises in Ligi Kuu Bara and here are 5 best defenses cross the league

An attack wins you games, but a great defence will win you leagues. At the halfway point of the 2017/18 season, Simba, Azam, Singida United, Mtibwa Sugar and Yanga are the teams with best defence based on statistics in Ligi Kuu Bara.

  • Simba vs Azam 2017

    #1 Azam FC with Seven Clean sheets - 0.58

    Despite all the storylines surrounding Simba in the Ligi Kuu Bara this season, Azam have quietly gone about their business, and now stand second on their domestic league and possess the best defence in the league as well, having conceded just 3 goals in 12 games so far.

    Cioaba’s side have kept a clean sheet in 58% of their games so far, with 7 clean sheets in 12 games so far. However, it is rare that Azam are dominated in a game, as was evidenced by their evisceration of 15th placed Stand United.

  • Yanga vs Simba 28102017

    #2 Simba with Five Clean Sheets - 0.42

    Chelsea have conceded just 6 goals in 12 games, amidst a 13 match winning run that has seen them draw four times this season to amass 26 points.

    The Reds are unbeaten this season with 5 clean sheets so far. Simba have won 50% of their duel in the Ligi Kuu Bar so far, the leader of the league.

  • Donald Ngoma - Yanga v Singida United

    #3 Singida United the surprise of the season - 0.58

    Singida United are the best defensive side in a league known for its erratic defensive play, with just 3 goals conceded in 12 games, at an average of 0.25 goals conceded per game. They have also kept clean sheets for more than half the games played this season, with 7 clean sheets in a run that has seen them pick up 4 wins.
  • Yanga vs Mtibwa Sugar

    #4 Mtibwa Sugar

    The main reason for Mtibwa’s success this season in Ligi Kuu Bara has been their defence, surprisingly. With just 4 goals conceded so far, the Morogoro sides are the 4th best team across the eague for goals conceded, although they have only played 12 games so far this season.
  • Erasto Nyoni na Mwashiuya - Yanga vs Simba

    #5 Young Africans

    Young Africans lie 5th in the Ligi Kuu Bara table and are also the 5th best defence in Tanzania at the moment. With just 6 goals conceded in 12 games so far, Young Africans are the defending champions of the league, with a record of 4 wins, 5 draws and 1 loss earning them 21 points so far.
