FC Barcelona and Real Madrid are two of the most successful football (soccer) teams not only in Spain but in the whole of Europe. As a fan, you probably know everything there is to know about them. For the newbies out here, let’s repeat some of the most important facts!
Futbol Club Barcelona, known simply as Barcelona or Barca, is a football club based in the city of Barcelona, Spain. It was founded on November 29th, 1899, by a group of Swiss, Catalan, German, and English footballers guided by Joan Gamper. Barcelona competes in La Liga, the men’s top professional football division of Spanish football.
Since its inception, the club has grown into a symbol of Catalonia and Catalan culture, hence the team’s motto “Més que un club” (“More than a club”). Barcelona’s supporters are the ones owning and operating it, which differentiates it from many other football clubs.
Barcelona traditionally plays in dark blue shades with red stripes. The current head coach of the club is Xavier Hernández Creus, known as Xavi. Lionel Messi is the captain, and one of the top goal scorers. He scored 547 goals including friendlies, 461 goals in official competitions, 89 goals in European competitions, and 94 goals in international club matches.

The traditional color worn by Real Madrid’s players is white. The title of honor real is Spanish for “royal”. It was granted to the club by King Alfonso XIII in 1920 with the royal crown in the emblem. Unlike most European sporting organizations, Real Madrid’s members have owned and operated the club since its inception.
The current head coach of Real Madrid is Carlo Ancelotti. Sergio Ramos is the captain. One of the top goal scorers is Cristiano Ronaldo, who accumulated 448 goals.
