Evaluating Real Madrid and Barcelona Before the Clasico.

Real Madrid and Barcelona will be playing the Clasico next weekend and with two of the best players in the world it will be an awesome match, that is why I though about  analysing the teams from a financial point of view, it is well known that Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are probably the top earning players in the game, but what about the rest of their peers? the salaries were calculated as a percentage of the player’s value from trasnfermarkt

First the analysis of the entire payroll for each team:

Value per Club 2017

The total sum of the salaries are almost the same, with a lightly more expensive Real Madrid roster

Real vs Barcelona

Now lets analyse the teams starting with the defensive players, and with the names they used in their last regular league game with a 4-3-3 formation.


We can see that the Real Madrid’s defensive players are more expensive than Barcelona’s.


Here Real Madrid has again more expensive players, and I am surprised at the Paulinho’s profitability.


When you compare the attackers, here is where Barcelona has more expensive players, the only thing for sure is that it will be a GREAT match and so far Barcelona has been the team that has been performing better.
