In its last weekly newsletter, CIES unveiled the top 10 youngest staff in Europe. Monaco is in the lead, OM sixth.
Failing to be enthroned at the top of Ligue 1, Monaco takes first place in the ranking of the youngest squads in Europe, indicates the CIES in its last weekly letter. With an average age of 24.31 years, the princely club is ahead of Bayer Leverkusen (24.64 years) and… AS Saint-Etienne (24.74 years).

What explains the sawtooth start of the season for the Monegasques, only 8th in Ligue 1 after 8 days? Difficult to say, knowing that Niko Kovac’s men have also had to deal with the European Cup since the beginning of August.
Six L1 teams in the top 10
On the other hand, the argument stands for ASSE, the championship’s red lantern desperately looking for its first victory. Same fight for Stade Brestois, fourth in the ranking established by the CIES with an average age of 24.75 years. And also for La Spezia, which is placed just behind the SB29.
As for Olympique de Marseille, sixth in the standings with an average age of 24.81 years, Jorge Sampaoli manages for the moment to get the best of this young squad despite the defeat conceded against Lens (2-3 ) Sunday at the Vélodrome. Two other L1 teams are in the top 10: Reims, eighth (24.88 years old) and Nice, ninth (24.94 years old.
