Real Madrid, Barcelona and Football Clubs with the Most Copa del Rey Titles

Barcelona Has The Most Copa Del Rey Titles

Barcelona Has The Most Copa Del Rey Titles

Real Madrid have won the 2014 Copa del Rey – Spain’s oldest soccer tournament (1902). They defeated Barcelona 2-1 off the foot of Gareth Bale, who knocked in the winner with five minutes to go. It is Real Madrid’s 19th cup (King’s Cup).

But Barcelona still gets the last laugh, at least in terms of history. They’ve got 26 Copa del Rey titles, most of all.

In between, there’s Athletic Bilbao with 23. They’ve fallen off the map, though, winning their last 30 years ago (1984).

Here’s a look at all the winners, sorted by clubs with the most titles.
