The prestigious financial consultancy "Deloitte" has released its annual study on the finances of the most powerful Football (Soccer) teams. For the first time since the study began, the giants of Football suffer a significant decrease in their income. Its estimated that the top  20 Clubs will lose over 2 billion euros in revenue at the end of the 2020-21 season, reports the consultancy.

The ranking is still dominated by Spanish Football Clubs, FC Barçelona, repeats at the top of the ranking ahead of Real Madrid. Interestingly, no Premier League team is in the Top 3 after Bayern Munich climbs to the third place. Said this, FC Barcelona is currently undergoing an economic crisis with a huge debt that has it "technically" almost bankrupt. One would expect Real Madrid to overtake Barça in the Financial Ranking shortly. The Madrid Club has over the years been "prudent" with sending as they have strengthen the income side with merchandising & TV Rights.

UEFA TOP 10 CLUBS RANKING | Spanish Football Clubs

UEFA has released its Clubs classification list & from a Spanish Football perspective it should not surprise. The state of Spanish Football has experienced a decline as the two top Clubs Real Madrid & FC Barcelona begin a period of transition & rebuilding as their solid players become older & performance is declining. This is especially noticeable at Real Madrid who has a noticeable list of key players over the age of 30: Sergio Ramos, Luka Modric, Marcelo, Benzema...etc, as with Barça: Busquets, Pique, Messi etc.

Said this, the UEFA Club Ranking based on the results obtained by teams in their European participation in the last five seasons reflects relatively well the changing balance of power in European Football. While FC Barcelona holds second position, Real Madrid continues to slip down the ladder (from 3rd to 4th). The two other Spanish Clubs among the Top 10: Atlético de Madrid , is 5th and on the heels of their eternal rival Real Madrid, while FC Sevilla sits 9th. The last two mentioned Spanish Clubs have a better chance of climbing their positions if they can continue moving forward in European competitions, more so Sevilla than Atletico.

A similar situation is occurring with English Football, as we witness the decline of traditionally strong Clubs like Manchester United & Liverpool FC over the past seasons

Many thought that it would not have been possible, that the Spanish Football season was over due to the CO VID-19 crisis. However, the better than expected control of the pandemic & reduction of the local spread of the virus has made the situation good enough to open up LA LIGA & take-off where it left off before shut-down.

The Spanish Liga season resumens the 11 of June with the Seville Classic "Sevilla FC - Real Betis", with the rest of the scheduled match continuing the following days. Below are the schedules for Round 28 & Round 29 of LA LIGA. 

As you can see the fixture is very tight with matches nearly everyday & weekly in order to make up with lost time, plus attempt to finish the season (11 Rounds still to be played).

All matches are to be played under extremely higiene control conditions & in empty stadiums (no crowds). The main objective is to avoid CO-VID 19 contact & spread between players & within the Clubs, as an announced infection would put in quarantine the whole Club/s in question for 14 days.

So good news for Spanish Football, La Liga & fans. Lets hope things run smoothly with risks with health being the main objective.


The Spanish Football League - La Liga 2019/2020 - is currently at 20 Rounds from its total of 38 for a full season. Appropriate moment to see how the "Leading goalscorer" (EL PICHICHI) & "Leading goalkeeper" (EL ZAMORA) provisional classification tally is currently standing.
