Two of European football’s heavy hitters face each other in a clash of giants’ style fixture but a financial comparison reveals much still separate Juventus and FC Barcelona.

Juventus’ turnover fell to €406.8 million last season – less than half that of the Catalans whose turnover in the 2018/19 season stood at €852.2.

Meanwhile, in terms of operating profit, Barcelona’s in 2018/19 stood at negative €83.4 million compared to Juventus’ which in the financial year 2019/20 rose by €91.6 million to a whopping loss of €233.6 million.
