By the end of year 2005, Ronaldinho had started to accumulate a host of personal awards. He won the inaugural FIFPro World Player of the Year in September 2005, in addition to being included in the 2005 FIFPro World XI, and being named the 2005 European Footballer of the Year. Also that year, Ronaldinho was voted the FIFA World Player of the Year for the second consecutive year. He became only the third player to win the award more than once, after three time winners Ronaldo and Zinedine Zidane. His domination as the world's best footballer was undisputed as he also won the prestigious Ballon d'Or for the only time in his career.
On 19 November, Ronaldinho scored twice as Barcelona defeated Real Madrid 3–0 on the road in the first leg of El Clásico. After he sealed the match with his second goal, Madrid fans paid homage to his genius with a standing ovation, so rare a tribute only the great Diego Maradona had ever been granted previously as a Barcelona player at the Santiago Bernabéu. Following the game, Ronaldinho stated; "I will never forget this because it is very rare for any footballer to be applauded in this way by the opposition fans."
The season is considered as one of the best in Ronaldinho's career as he was an instrumental part of Barcelona's first Champions League title in 14 years and second overall. After winning their group convincingly, Barcelona faced Chelsea in the round of 16 for a rematch of the previous year. Ronaldinho scored a famous goal in the second leg, when he could not be stopped by a number of defenders and sealed Barca's qualification to the next round.
He also contributed one goal in Barcelona's elimination of Benfica in the quarterfinals with a 2–0 home victory. After a 1–0 semifinal aggregate win over Milan, in which Ronaldinho assisted the series' only goal by Ludovic Giuly, Barcelona progressed to the Champions League final, which they won on 17 May 2006 with a 2–1 defeat of Arsenal.
