2018 EuroLeague champions Real Madrid are the most popular club of the competition in social networks.

More specifically, they have over 18.3 million followers through three major social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram).

What is impressive is that there is a huge gap between the “Whites” and the other clubs. More specifically, Barcelona are second with 3.2 million followers, while Fenerbahce is third with 2.5M.

The two Greek giants, Olympiacos and Panathinaikos, are fourth and fifth, respectively, with the “Reds” having a slight advantage over their arch rivals.
