CIES (International Center for Sports Studies) has conducted an interesting study among major European teams. They have developed a ranking on the number of long passes in relation to the total passes a team do during a match.

The list starts with the team with the highest percentage of long passes. So, as expected, to find FC Barcelona we need to go to the end. Specifically, the Blaugrana team ranked 96th, with 1.4% of long passes. Behind them, only Guardiola's Bayern Munich and PSG, both with 1.1%.

As for Barça competitors in the Spanish league, Real Madrid occupies the 88th position (2.1%), while Atlético is 82th (2.9%). The Spanish team with highest percentage of passes is Eibar, which ranked fifth, with 6.6%.

Being further down in the ranking does not mean to be a more dominant team, because the third is Leicester (6.9%), the current leader of the Premier League, a competition where long passes are part of the style of many teams. The first position is occupied by Darmstadt, a German team with 10.7%
