who has the most titles?

It’s a perpetual battle between Spain’s two giants since their creation more than 120 years ago. But who, Real Madrid or FC Barcelona, ​​​​​​holds the most titles to date?

The fight to find out which is the most successful team in Spanish football never stops. If Real Madrid dominate the main competitions thanks to their 35 La Liga titles and their 14 European Cups, Barça can still rejoice that they are not far behind Real Madrid in the end. This is what the scale looks like today, after the last trophy won from Xavi’s men, the Spanish Super Cup 2023.

national titles

FC Barcelona is the club with the most titles in Spain. The Blaugrana have 76 national titles, against Real Madrid’s 67. Barça have fewer La Liga titles than Real Madrid, but dominate in cup competitions.

The Catalans have won 26 Liga, 31 Copas del Rey, 14 Spanish Super Cups (including the one recently won against Real Madrid in Riyadh), two Copas de La Liga and three Eva Duarte Cups. Madrid, meanwhile, have won 35 Liga, 19 Copas del Rey, 12 Spanish Super Cups, one Copa de la Liga and one Copa Eva Duarte in their history.

European titles

Real Madrid currently have three more European titles than Barça. With their last Champions League lift against Liverpool in May, they have now won 24, three more than the Catalans.

Barcelona have five European Cups (four in the Champions League format), four European Cup Winners’ Cups, five European Super Cups, three Inter-Cities Fairs Cups (the predecessor to the UEFA Cup) and two Latino Cups (the predecessor to the European Cup).

Meanwhile, Real Madrid can boast holding a record 14 European Cups (including eight in the Champions League format), in addition to two UEFA Cups, five European Super Cups and, like Barça, two Latin Cups.

World titles

The world titles are a reserve of Real Madrid. The Merengues’ trophies are double those of Barcelona in this category. While Barça have only won four, Blancos have won nine world titles.

FC Barcelona have won three Club World Cups, while Real Madrid have won four Club World Cups, three Intercontinental Cups and one Copa Iberoamericana.

Real are ahead… just a little!

In the end, if we add up all these trophies won by the two clubs in over a century of competition, we see that Real Madrid, with 99 titles, is only ahead of FC Barcelona, ​​​​​​98 titles, by just one trophy! Ancelotti’s men had the opportunity to reach the symbolic and unreachable goal of 100 titles in the Spanish Super Cup final, but Barça didn’t miss the opportunity to deprive themselves of it.

The end of the season will be crucial in this title war between the two Spanish giants, as with La Liga, Champions League and Copa del Rey still in play, Real Madrid can take the lead with a 100, 101 or even title 102, or on the contrary being overtaken by Xavi’s team, which can potentially win its 99th and 100th title (Liga and Copa), and this under the beard and nose of the Casa Blanca…
