Real Madrid are not only the most successful club in the world but they're also the richest. If you're lucky enough to support Los Blancos then your football existence will be mostly be filled with trophies, celebration, large winning margins and expensive transfer purchases. No club can match or come anywhere near to the records that have been set by Real Madrid but there is one side that resides 310 miles away that will not accept this is the case. Barcelona fans' rivalry with Madrid supporters is incomparable to any other football feud and it's intensified by the sheer amount of times they play each other and the fact they're both better than any other club in Europe (sorry Bayern, but it's true). It's difficult (aside from using proven statistics) to decipher who the is the better club but Real Madrid have a number of trump cards that belittle their Catalan opponents and persistently bring out Cules' green-eyed monsters. Despite Barcelona's dominance during the 2014-15 season these statements will still creep into Barca fans' thoughts and leave them feeling a certain jealousy that even Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar won't be able to get rid of.
15. They Have A Lot More La Liga Titles
You can't argue with Real Madrid's La Liga dominance. Real have won 32 domestic titles to Barcelona's 22 and will hold that record for a long time due to the competitiveness between the two sides. Los Blancos dominated the championship from the 1950s through the 1980s and it wasn't until the 1990's that Barcelona started to compete with them. Between 1961 and 1980, Real Madrid dominated the Primera Division being crowned champion 14 times and it wasn't until John Cruyff's return to the club in 1988 that saw Barcelona compete with them.
