Spanish La Liga champions Real Madrid raised their total trophies to 91 this season.

With their most recent victory, Los Blancos leveled with Barcelona in terms of number of trophies.

Real Madrid clinched 26 International trophies, including 13 Champions Leagues, four UEFA Super Cups, two UEFA Cup titles and seven Intercontinental Cups.

The Spanish giants also won La Liga 34 times, the Spanish Cup 19 times, the Spanish Super Cup 11 times and the League Cup once in Spain.

Also, Barcelona have 26 Spanish league titles, 30 Spanish Cups, 13 Spanish Super Cups and two League Cups.

Barca got five Champions League titles, five UEFA Super Cups, three club world trophies, three Fairs Cup titles and four Cup Winners' Cup in international competitions.

Since 2005, Barcelona has managed to win 36 trophies and Real Madrid 22 trophies.

In the last 15 seasons, Barcelona had nine league titles, while Real Madrid got four.

Having won the last 10 games, Real Madrid did not lose a single match during the coronavirus period.

The team are also the only one that have not been defeated at home throughout the season.

They were held to draws only with Valladolid (1-1), Real Betis (0-0), Athletic Bilbao (0-0) and Celta Vigo (2-2) at home.

Team captain Sergio Ramos, forward Karim Benzema and goalie Thibaut Courtois were the most prominent players in Real Madrid's success this season.

Setting the record for the top scorer in La Liga history, Ramos scored a total of 69 goals so far.

The 34-year-old, who had 10 goals with Real Madrid, was the key name in the critical wins his team received.

Real Madrid also conceded the lowest number of league goals as Belgian goalkeeper Courtois was able to guard against all but 20 attempts in 34 league games.

Courtois wants to add to his Zamora trophy collection this season with Real Madrid.

The award goes to the goalie with the lowest goals-to-games ratio in a season.

Benzema, Real Madrid's top scorer, played with 21 goals, one match before league's end.

The French star took second place after Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi, 23, in the top scorer race.
