All-time Barcelona XI

  • The best players to have put on the Barcelona jersey over the years.

How many from the current Barcelona XI make it into this team?

It’s one of the finest encounters to ever grace the sporting stage, combining fierce passion with gripping aesthetics, El Clasico sees two of the continent’s best outfits square up.

While Real Madrid are blessed with their own fair share of top talent, Barcelona also feature their own catalogue of divine individuals over the years and, here, I have reflected on the best eleven players to ever put on a red and blue shirt; it was no easy task.

GK – Antoni Ramallets 

Barca-born shot-stopper Ramallets won six Primera Division titles and five Spanish cups during his time with the Blaugrana, as well as securing the title of best goalkeeper in Spain – in the form of the Zamora trophy – on five other occasions.

An unfortunate own goal in the 1961 European Cup final remains the only blot on his otherwise outstanding copy book. He combined quick intellect and sharp reflexes to establish himself in the national squad at the 1950 World Cup and is regarded as one of the finest keepers of all time.
