Who is statistically the best team in Europe? (6)

3. Barcelona - Overall points: 10

Barcelona are cantering to their 4th league title in five years on the domestic front, but all is not particularly rosy at the Camp Nou.

With Tito Vilanova ill and out of the picture, Barcelona have struggled to reach their very best as they did under Pep Guardiola.

Their defensive record isn't exactly impressive; Carles Puyol's injury woes have destabilised the Catalan giants and they are only the 6th best team on our list of seven when it comes to keeping opponents out. They have tailed off their pursuit of Real Madrid's record points haul in recent weeks as well, which has affected their overall ranking.

However they have a force of nature in attack, and with Lionel Messi, anything is possible. The Argentinian has an astonishing 49 league goals to his name, so it is no surprise that Barca are the best scorers and attacking team on the list.
