With Barcelona winning five and drawing one of their six games in La Liga and the Champions League, scoring 20 goals and conceding just two, culers have had plenty of reasons to smile about so far this season.
After enduring drab football as well as a lack of results in recent campaigns under Quique Setien and Ronald Koeman, watching Xavi’s side in action has seemingly been a breath of fresh air for the fanbase.

Aside from the Camp Nou, the other stadiums on the list in order include Signal Iduna Park (Borussia Dortmund), Allianz Arena (Bayern Munich), Old Trafford (Manchester United), San Siro (AC Milan), Giuseppe Meazza (Inter Milan), Orange Velodrome…
