For the first time in the club's history, Barcelona rose to the top of Forbes' rankings.

The Catalans overtook their sworn rival - Real Madrid and became the most expensive football club in the world with a valuation of $ 4.76 billion.

Real Madrid, who have topped the list five times in the past, which won the Clásico last Saturday 1: 2 in the Clásico, find themselves this time only in second place with a value of $ 4.75 billion.

Forbes announced that the average value of the top 20 clubs increased 30% from two years ago to $ 2.28 billion despite the corona plague that affected ticket sales revenue, which dropped last season to $ 441 million - down 9.6% from 2017-18.

"The economic damage is far from over, with a sharp drop in ticket sales this season, as most teams in the top leagues in Europe still allow except fans to attend the games," said Forbes vice-president Mike Oznian.

European champions Bayern Munich ($ 4.215 billion) are in third place on the list while the 'Big Six' in the Premier League - Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur - are in the top ten.

Last year’s French champions and runners-up in the Champions League last year Paris Saint-Germain rose to ninth place after being valued at $ 2.5 billion with a 129% increase in two years - the biggest increase among the top ten clubs.

The World's Most Valuable Clubs:





Barcelona - $ 4.76 bn



Real Madrid - $ 4.75 bn



Bayern Munich - $ 4.22 bn



Man United - $ 4.2 bn



Liverpool - $ 4.1 bn
