The rivalry between Real Madrid and Barcelona is as old as our League. The two giants of our football have been starring for decades in a pulse in which, although in global terms the Madrid team is winning, Barca has been the main protagonist of the last seasons.
For example, the supremacy I’ve been up to in League in the last decade is beyond doubt. Barca have won seven of the last ten editions of the tournament, compared to the two won by Madrid. The Azulgranas have taken advantage of the last seasons to cut distances in the league, where the Catalans are getting closer and closer to the capitals. Today Real Madrid is the club with the most Leagues (33), followed by the Barcelonanistas, who are 27.
Another of the great pulses starring the two giants is in the goalscoring realm. Since the start of the league championship, in the 28-29 season, Barcelona and Real Madrid have been thickening their records of marked targets to become the two most scoring teams of our football. Thus, their rivalry has moved to this area and for several decades they have been fighting to be the team with the most goal in Spain.
Today, Real Madrid lead this ranking with 6,137 scores. However, for the first time in a long time this record is threatened. In fact, you could lose that status as all-time top scorer this very day. Barcelona is a single target away from the meringues, with 6,136 in favour.
Thus, if Barca finish this next day by scoring two more goals than Zinedine Zidane, he would be at the top of the historical scorer sorting. It would be a milestone that Catalans have not achieved for more than half a century. In particular, since the distant season 61-62, the last in which Barcelona managed to finish the course at the head of the global ranking of the competition.
