Daniel Farke and his troops are playing very attacking kind of football, as they scored 1.92 goals per game. TeemuPukki has been the attacking spearhead, as he scored 18 goals and created another 6.
The Citizen is doing quite well in the defensive half of the field, as they conceded 1.23 goals per game.
