Have Real Madrid or Barcelona had the better decade? Season-by-season comparison

first_img 11 11 2007/08 season – click the right arrow to see the rest of the comparison – Barcelona: This was Frank Rijkaard’s last season in charge at Camp Nou, and felt something like the end of an era for the Catalan outfit. They failed to win any silverware, coming third in the league and losing at the semi-final stage of both Copa del Rey and the Champions League. It was the last season for Ronaldinho at Barca, and was the first year in which Lionel Messi started to establish himself as a key player – scoring 16 goals in 24 games.
Real Madrid: Although Real were worse than Barca in both the Copa and the Champions League – being knocked out in the round of 16 in both – they did claim silverware. Coached by Bernd Schuster Real won LaLiga, finishing eight points ahead of second placed Villarreal and 18 points ahead of Barca.
Verdict: Real blew Barcelona out the water this season, rightfully winning the league, despite their lesser performances in the cup competitions. 2015/16 season – Barcelona: More success for Enrique as Barca claimed the UEFA Super Cup, Club World Cup, LaLiga and Copa. They were thrashed 5-1 over two legs by Athletic Club in the Supercopa, and knocked out in the Champions League quarter-finals. The football remained exhilarating, through doubts started to creep in about Enrique’s managerial pedigree.
Real Madrid: Real struggled until Zinedine Zidane replaced Rafa Benitez as manager, and though their domestic season was poor – finishing runners-up in the league and not making it past the round of 32 in the Copa – the Frenchman guided Los Blancos to Champions League success.
Verdict: Although some questioned whether Real Madrid were worthy winners of the European Cup, or simply fluked their way to the trophy, that success meant their season was better than Barcelona’s. 11 11 2008/09 season – Barcelona: Following Pep Guardiola’s appointment as head coach, Barca went on to enjoy the greatest season in Spanish football history – and one of the greatest years in the history of the sport. They became the first team in Spain to complete the treble – winning LaLiga, the Copa and the Champions League – and achieved all their success in style. They ended the league season nine points ahead of Real.
Real Madrid: Real started the season by beating Valencia to win the Supercopa de Espana, but that was as good as it got for the Madrid club. Bernd Schuster was replaced as manager in December by Juande Ramos, as Real ended up finishing second in the league, being knocked out at the round of 32 stage in the Copa and the round of 16 stage in the Champions League.
Verdict: Barcelona are easy winners this season, with Guardiola’s team considered one of the best in the history of the sport. 11 Verdict – While Real Madrid have ended the decade on the up, Barcelona can still claim to be the most dominant team in Spain since 2007. In fact, they have arguably been the most dominant team in world football in the last 10 years. They became the first Spanish team to complete the treble, and under Pep Guardiola developed a style of play which continues to be mimicked the world over. Real’s European Cup successes are remarkably impressive – history making, in fact – but over the last decade they have had to watch Barcelona become the envy of the footballing world whilst trying to play catch up. 11 11 11 2012/13 season – Barcelona: Barca couldn’t be kept off top spot for too long. They won LaLiga under new manager Tito Vilanova, but didn’t find success in the Supercopa – losing to Real – the Copa or the Champions League – being knocked out at the semi-final stage in both.
Real Madrid: As listed above, Real started the season well by beating Barca to the Supercopa, but Jose Mourinho’s men failed to win any other silverware. They were 15 points off top spot in the league, lost to Atletico Madrid in the Copa final, and were beaten by Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League semi-finals.
Verdict: In a season of limited success for both Barcelona and Real Madrid, the Catalan club come out on top for claiming the only major honour – LaLiga – and doing so in style. 11 2010/11 season – Barcelona: It was another three trophies for Pep and Co. this season, with another Champions League, Supercopa and LaLiga title added to Guardiola’s glowing CV. They also reached the Copa final, but were beaten after extra time by Real.
Real Madrid: Jose Mourinho was appointed manager in the summer to return Real to their former glories, and for the first time since 2008 the Bernabeu club seriously challenged Barca. They finished second in the league by just four points, beat Barca in the Copa final to claim their only piece of silverware, and also reach the Champions League semi-finals – where they lost to the Catalan club.
Verdict: Although Real closed the gap on their rivals, Barcelona’s success in both the league and Champions League meant they enjoyed a better campaign. 2013/14 season – Barcelona: Barca lost out on the LaLiga title by three points, finishing second on goal difference, and only ended the season with the Supercopa to their name. They lost in the Copa final to Real, and failed to make it past the quarter-final stage in the Champions League. Tata Martino was appointed boss in the summer, but was sacked at the end of a rather dismal season.
Real Madrid: Real also failed to win LaLiga, as city rivals Atletico Madrid became the first team outside the big two to win the league since Valencia in 2004. However, under Carlo Ancelotti they did complete a cup double, and the Italian achieved what he was hired to do – win the Champions League. They beat Atleti in the final to claim La Decima and overcame Barca in the Copa final to make it two major honours.
Verdict: Despite league success eluding Real Madrid, they enjoyed a wonderful campaign in relation to Barcelona’s. 11 2011/12 season – Barcelona: Barca were finally knocked off the top of LaLiga, but still managed to end the season with the Copa, the UEFA Super Cup, the Club World Cup and the Supercopa to their name; they beat Real on their way to winning the Copa and the Supercopa. Barca also made it to the Champions League semi-finals, but were beaten by eventual winners Chelsea.
Real Madrid: Real enjoyed a record breaking league season under Jose Mourinho, winning the title with 100 points and scoring 121 goals – ending nine points clear of Barca. They didn’t claim any other silverware, being beaten by their rivals in the Copa and the Supercopa, and losing to Bayern Munich in the Champions League semi-finals.
Verdict: Although Barcelona had more trophies at the end of the year, Real’s season was the better one as they absolutely dominated LaLiga on their way to winning the title. 2009/10 season – Barcelona: Barca started the campaign knowing they could win a sextuple, and though they failed to achieve that over the course of the season, they did end 2009 with six trophies to their name. They added the UEFA Super Cup, the Club World Cup and the Supercopa to their previous season’s tally, then added another LaLiga title in 2010. They ended the season with four of six trophies, losing in the Copa round of 16 and the Champions League semi-finals to eventual winners Internazionale of Milan.
Real Madrid: Again Real paled into insignificance alongside Barca, failing to claim a single piece of silverware in 2009/10. They finished second in the league, were knocked out in the Copa at the round of 32 and the Champions League at the round of 16.
Verdict: Another easy win for Guardiola’s Barcelona, who dominated. Real Madrid have enjoyed a glorious season, winning LaLiga and the Champions League under Bernabeu icon Zinedine Zidane.Catalan rivals Real Madrid have had to watch on with envy, as Luis Enrique’s men ended the season with just the Supercopa de Espana and the Copa del Rey to their name.This makes a change from recent history, as all too often it has been Barca atop the heap with Real struggling to match the wealth of honours won by the Camp Nou club.But, which club has been better over the last 10 years? talkSPORT take a season-by-season look at both Barcelona and Real Madrid to try and determine which team has dominated Spanish football since 2007.Click the right arrow, above, to see the results… 2016/17 season – Barcelona: Barca were beaten to the LaLiga title by Real, but did win the Copa and the Supercopa. Their Champions League campaign was fairly disastrous – aside from that comeback win over PSG – and it was no surprise Luis Enrique stepped down as manager at the end of a shoddy campaign.
Real Madrid: In Zidane’s first full season in charge he managed to improve upon his debut half-season by winning the Champions League – Real became the first team to retain the trophy since its rebranding in 1992 – and also by guiding Los Blancos to long-awaited LaLiga success. There was also success in the UEFA Super Cup and the Club World Cup. In winning the league, doubts about Zidane and Madrid’s true quality disappeared almost overnight.
Verdict: It was another wonderful season for Real Madrid, who made history in the Champions League and also beat Barcelona to the league title. 11 2014/15 season – Barcelona: It was time for another Barca treble, this time under the management of Luis Enrique. They won LaLiga, the Copa and the Champions League – beating Juventus in the final. After a shaky start to the camapign, Barca started to play some wonderful football, and the MSN trio of Messi, Suarez and Neymar established themselves as the most feared forward line in world football.
Real Madrid: Real built on the previous season’s Champions League success by winning the UEFA Super Cup and the Club World Cup, though they failed to claim any further honours. They lost the Supercopa, finished second in the league, were knocked out in the Champions League semi-finals, and only made it to the Copa round of 16.
Verdict: Barcelona were one of the most feared teams in Europe in 2014/15, and blew Real Madrid’s limited success out the water. last_img read more
