Publish on 18/10/2021 at 08:18 - S. WILLIS


It's official! Clermont Foot top the charts for fielding the oldest average starting eleven in the league so far this season. The newly-promoted side takes the number one spot ahead of Paris Saint-Germain in the standings!

After 10 rounds of Ligue 1 Uber Eats so far, Clermont have fielded the oldest average starting eleven this term. With experienced campaigners such as Florent Ogier (32), Johan Gastien (33) or Jason Berthomier (31), the Clermont-Ferrand club is the only team to exceed the 28-year-old mark (28 and 48 days).

Who's next?

Opponents last Friday evening, Paris Saint-Germain and Angers SCO take the other two places on the podium. PSG, league leaders since Round 3, has an average starting eleven age of 27 and 241 days, ahead of the Gérald Baticle's Angers (27 years and 230 days). 

But with a return to full fitness with the capital club imminent, will Sergio Ramos (35) change the order at the top of the ranking in the coming weeks?

Monaco and OM, the youngest

On the other hand, AS Monaco showed that they are happy to place their trust in youth, displaying the youngest average starting eleven (24 years and 170 days). Olympique de Marseille ranks just above the Monegasques with an average age of 24 and 254 days.
