Best League team of the decade
The Centre d’Investigacions d’Història i Estadística del Futbol Espanyol (CIHEFE) has designated FC Barcelona as the best club in the Spanish League during the first decade of this century.
The CIHEFE has looked back over the first decade of the century and totting up its points has given
Barça 1,630 against second placed Real Madrid with 1,482.
The CIHEFE points system is based not on titles won, but rather on
points taken for wins or draws in the Spanish and European competitions, not taking into account
any other factor, such as winning competitions, the club budget or value of the squad.
12 titles in 10 years
Although the number of titles wasn’t taken into account by the Centre, Barça
are the team who’ve won most competitions in the last ten years, taking a total of 12, seven
with Guardiola and five under Rijkaard, two ahead of second place Real Madrid.
This summer’s Spanish Super Cup win counts as the first title of the next decade
–but certainly it won’t be the last!
