The fact of have not conquered the past edition of the UEFA Champions League, although yes they won the League, the Glass of Rey, the Supercopa of Europe and the World-wide of Clubs, has caused that the FC Barcelona have contributed this year 2016 less players to the list of the Balloon of Gold of which contributed in 2015, when it came to conquer the Champions 2014-15.
