In almost two years on the Real Madrid bench, Zinedine Zidane has already made history, and during that time, he has won twice as many trophies as rivals Barcelona have managed.

The Frenchman arrived at Valdebebas on January 4, 2016 with the aim of returning to the team the place they had lost in recent times.

A place that Barcelona had taken from them, which neither Juande Ramos, nor Pellegrini, nor Mourinho had managed to reverse.

Carlo Ancelotti raised four trophies, the same number as the Catalans, but then … Zidane came.

He replaced Rafael Benitez who failed to convince in the six months he held the position for.

Real were third in the league, five points behind the Blaugrana.

In the Champions League, they’d already qualified for the Round of 16 but had been eliminated in the Copa del Rey because of fielding an ineligible Denis Cheryshev.

Zizou finished the season by raising the eleventh Champions League trophy and finished LaLiga a single point behind Barcelona, the champion of the domestic competition and also of the Copa del Rey.

Two titles to the Catalans and one to ZZ.

After that came the European Super Cup and the 16/17 Club World Cup, another Champions League and the league.

Five titles in season and a half, and three more; another European Super Cup, a Supercopa de Espana and the Club World Cup won against Gremio this season.

During this time, Barcelona have only managed to add another Copa del Rey and a Spanish Super Cup.

Zidane 8, Barcelona 4.
