#1 Most league titles won: Real Madrid - 32
To say that Real Madrid have been the most successful football club in the world is not much of an overstatement. The club which also happens to be the richest in the world, in terms of revenue, were adjudged fittingly "FIFA Club of the 20th Century". Real have won the league title a record 32 times, their closest rivals being Barcelona with 22.
Real Madrid have also won a record 5 consecutive league titles twice, once in the early 1960s with a team that had Alfredo di Stefano and Ferenc Puskas; and again in the late 1980s with a team led by Emilio Butragueno. More recently, the star-studded nature of their team has led to them being named the Galacticos.
Leave alone teams catching up with their number of titles, it is more likely that Real shall pull even further away from their rivals in the upcoming seasons.
