Forbes said the average worth of the top 20 clubs had increased by 30% from two years ago to $2.28 billion despite the COVID-19 pandemic impacting matchday revenue, which fell to $441 million last season — down 9.6% from 2017-18.

“The pain is far from over, with a worsening decline in matchday revenue during the current season, as most of the teams in Europe’s top leagues still permit few fans to attend games,” Forbes’ assistant managing editor Mike Ozanian wrote.

On Sunday Real Madrid defeated Barcelona to win El Clasico but lost its place to Spain rivals in the list of Forbes valuable football teams.
