Although the first team of football did not conquer LaLiga, the rest of the sportsmen of the teams of the others disciplines have had an exert excellent
The team of handball of the Barça conquered Europe by tenth time in his history with the third crown in Colony of the team led by Xavi Pascual. The 36-23 in front of the Aalborg (goleada record in a final) was the cherry of the cake in style to the ninth Barcelona presence in 12 editions of a Final Four where other teams never have triumphed.
The Champions supposes the 43º continental scepter of combined Barcelona between all his professional teams in a season with four finals contested of six possible. Only the masculine football and the hockey skate did not reach the last round unlike the feminine football (champion for the first time by the expense of Chelsea with a 4-0 in Göteborg), the five-a-side football (KO in front of the Sporting lisboeta by 3-4) and the basket (defeated by 81-86 in front of Efes of Micic and Larkin)
A precedent like this occurred in the season 2014-15, previous to the elections where Josep María Bartomeu turned into president, to find other four finals of the Champions with victories in football, handball, hockey in skate and defeat in five-a-side football. Never more it has occurred. Still with Bartomeu, the club bet strong creating teams of other very competitive disciplines, this was before the pandemia.
The mánager of the feminine football, Markel Zubizarreta, apuntaló the feminine staff in 2019 and no fichó in 2020. And Albert Soler, the one who in that then was director of the professional sections, engendered with David Barrufet (handball), Txus Lahoz (five-a-side football), Nacho Rodríguez (basket)and Toni Looked (hockey skate) excellent groups to compete by everything. Something that always has looked for a club of renown like the Barcelona
By the way, any of the four managers of the already mentioned teams is still in a season that could have finished with the conquest of all the Leagues. In addition to the one of the feminine football, with Champions and included Glass, the Barça of handball and hockey skate already conquered a big victory. In fact, the team of basket Barcelona adds to this list since they defeated this Tuesday to the Real Madrid 72-93.
Only it failed the first team of masculine football, that headed the plenary of 1999 with basket, handball and hockey with the four Leagues of the Centenari when the five-a-side football of the club did not litigate in the elite.
A factor to consider
Now well, the excellent results of the teams of other sportive disciplines of the Barcelona come from the 2019-20 product of the finished to European level in the current in two sports since the Euroligas of basket and hockey did not finish and remained empty.
The group of five-a-side football of Andreu Square, that neither will follow, conquered in the past month of October the third Champions in the Palau in front of ElPozo Murcia, and the one of handball fell in December in the final in front of the Kiel, afterwards to having been absent six months afterwards in Colony. Both sealed the pass hours before in hard 'semis' in front of KPRF and PSG. Therefore, they are six finals of the Glass of Europe contested by the Barça in less than a year with three triumphs and three disappointments.
The eurodoblete masculine-feminine
With the historical success of the Barça of Lluís Cortés, the club is the only champion of Europe in the masculine and feminine list of winners with six trophies between both that form part of a collection of 43 continental crowns of a total of 64 finals in which they have participated.
The hockey barcelonista, leader of the ránking with 22 titles in 26 finals, opened the vitrinas in 1973 until the handball (10 of 15) added him in 1991. A goal of Ronald Koeman in Wembley finish in 1992 with the ghosts of the football culé (5 of 8) before raising four trophies more between 2006 and 2015.
Already then it had premièred the basket (2 of 8) in 2003 after five stray finals and the five-a-side football (3 of 5) attained add another trophy to the list in2012. From 1972, only in 1977, 1987, 1988, 1989, 1993, 1995, 2016 and 2017 it was not the Barça in any final of the Glass of Europe, but yes fell the Korac of basket in 1987, the Recopa of football (1989) and the Recopa of handball (1995).
