Two do not disagree that Lionel Messi's influence on his team Barcelona is very large, as he is the scorer of the historical team and one of the best players who have gone through the club's history, but the numbers confirm that Messi's importance to Barca exceeded all expectations, especially in terms of collective titles.
Before the "Bulga" - who played its first games with the first team on October 17, 2004 - the difference in the titles between Barcelona and Real Madrid was 13 titles in favor of the latter, and after Messi's participation, his brilliance, his record of goals and his making other goals for his colleagues, the two teams became equal in the number of titles .
More than that, Barca was one ahead of the title until a few days ago, when the Royal won the Club World Cup title and succeeded in equalizing the numbers.
For example, before Messi, Barca had 16 titles in the League against 29 riyals, and after the Argentine magician bridged the gap, Barca has 26 titles against 33 of the royal. In the Champions League, Barcelona won - before Messi - one title in the Champions League versus nine for Meringue, and after Messi became the Blaugrana has five titles for 13 riyals.
In conclusion, the number of riyal titles - before Messi - was seventy, compared to 57 for Barca. After Messi, every club has 91 titles.
