Real Madrid have amassed 118 trophy wins, in regional, national, continental and global competitions. Barcelona, on the other hand, have gathered 130 titles over their history.

The most recent chapter in the world’s most famous rivalry saw Reak move level again with the Catalan club.

The two sides played out a 0-0 draw the preceding December and Barcelona headed into the clash two points clear of their Madrid rivals in the table.

However, Real Madrid secured victory to move back into first place in the Spanish league table and they will hope to remain there until the end of the season.

Real Madrid vs Barcelona: Head-to-head:

March’s Liga clash was the 244th competitive Clasico, though Madrid and Barca have met another 34 times in friendlies and other exhibition matches.

Who has more titles? Barcelona or Real Madrid

The overall head-to-head record of meetings between the teams has been extremely tight and Real’s recent win brings them back level with Barca on 96 wins each overall, moving them ahead by one in La Liga.

Competition Games Played Madrid wins Barca wins Draws
La Liga 181 73 72 36
Copa del Rey 36 12 16 8
Champions League 8 3 2 3
Other competitions* 20 8 6 6
Total 244 96 96 52
 In other competitions, the sample size is smaller. Barca has the advantage in the 36 games played in the Copa del Rey, while Madrid is ahead by a hair on the rare occasions these rivals have been drawn together in the Champions League or European Cup.

Since Barca made Pep Guardiola their coach in the summer of 2008, though, the tide has been turning.

In La Liga, Barca has won 13 of the Clasicos played since Guardiola’s appointment, drawing four and losing four. They also won the 2010-11 Champions League semi-final, which was the first time the clubs have met in that competition since 2002.

Real won the UEFA Cup (now the Europa League) twice, while Barca are the most successful team in the now-defunct UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup with four triumphs. Barca did win the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup – which eventually became the UEFA Cup – three times, but that was prior to its organisational takeover by UEFA.

Competition Real Madrid Barcelona
La Liga 33 26
Copa del Rey 19 30
Supercopa de Espana 10 13
Champions League 13 5
UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup 0 4
Europa League 2 0
UEFA Super Cup 4 5
Club World Cup 4 3
Total 85 95

Nevertheless, Barca has won the Copa del Rey 11 times more than Madrid, and you can see their recent dominance in the fact that when it comes to Club World Cups, they are not far away – a rivalry that only began in 2000.

Again a closer look at more recent history for Barcelona offers a more positive picture.

Both clubs endured a barren spell continentally in the 1970s and 1980s as English, Italian and German clubs dominated, but the difference in the Clasico competitors’ European records can be attributed to the two decades before that.

Madrid cleaned up through the early years of the European Cup, winning it five times in a row between 1956 and 1960 and again in 1966. They also dominated La Liga, winning it 18 times between 1950 and 1980 to Barca’s five.
