Barcelona, Sevilla Set To “Increase” Title Haul

FC Barcelona and Sevilla will be battling for a lot more than just the Copa del Rey this Sunday when they face off at 9.30 p.m. CET at the Vicente Calderón in Madrid, Spain.

Both teams will be going for a double and there are chances to enhance their already impressive title haul in the past ten years.

Barça is coming off their second league title in a row and sixth in eight seasons, while Sevilla won its third UEFA Europa League Cup in a row on Wednesday night, the fifth overall.

Sunday’s clash pits Spain’s two most successful teams over the past decade. Not counting La Liga, the Catalans have hoisted a jaw-dropping 18 titles. Sevilla have won nine.

Way behind Barça in non-league titles is both Real Madrid and Atlético Madrid. Los Blancos have won seven non-league cups over the same period while the Rojiblancos have won six.
