The Messi era: how many titles Barcelona brings to Real Madrid since the Argentine debut
“La Pulga” continues to harvest trophies for his personal showcase with Barcelona since he jumped into the field in 2004
Barcelona revalidated the league title on Saturday and became a two-time champion of Spanish football after beating Levante 1-0 at Camp Nou. The one of this season was the first trophy that Lionel Messi raised like captain of the nine that harvested at local level.
Real Madrid, on the other hand, is finishing a campaign for oblivion, in which they bid farewell to the Copa del Rey (eliminated at the hands of Barça) and the Champions League quickly, while in the national tournament this end of week lost to the last of the table Rayo Vallecano.
In this context, and after lifting a new league title, the figures of the Argentine star were known. He only has more trophies than all Real Madrid in the last 15 years.
No doubt Lionel Messi marked an era. And is that since his debut, on October 16, 2004, he won 34 titles and was ranked in the fifth place overall of the most winning players in history, led by Dani Alves with 39.
With the recent winning of the League Cup, La Pulga has won over 14 trophies for all of Real Madrid, which since 2004 has 20 titles.

In addition, the Barcelona captain could extend his dominance this year because, without competition for Real Madrid, the Argentine continues in the race to win a new Copa del Rey (he will play the final against Valencia on May 25), a Spanish Super Cup and a Champions League (so far in the semifinals with Liverpool).
To get the maximum European title, will also be opened two more doors: The Club World Cup and the European Super Cup.
