Barcelona are one of the biggest football clubs in the world.

Even through their recent financial woes, you only have to look at the burning desire of players like Robert Lewandowski and Raphinha to pull on the famous red and blue stripes to see exactly what the club means within sport.

From its iconic Camp Nou cathedral to the sentiment of the ‘mes que un club’ motto and everything in between, it’s hard not to think of the European giants with anything but reverence.

How well do you know Barcelona?

As such, there are plenty of supporters who claim to have an extensive knowledge of the Blaugrana regardless of whether they’re a season-ticket holder or just tune in for El Clasico twice a season.

Besides, even if you haven’t watched a single Barcelona game since Lionel Messi left the club, you’ve still probably got a good idea of who, say, their all-time top goalscorer and record appearance maker is.
