Barça, a champion with a record of matches played in European basketball

Never before has a basketball team from the main leagues in Europe played 90 games until the end of their competition season. It is what Barça de Saras Jasikevicius has achieved, that has won 70 games and lost another 20 in total during this 2020-2021 campaign that closed last night with the achievement of the ACB title.

The demanding calendar, the extension of the competition in the Euroleague a couple of years ago and the participation in all the national competitions this course has caused that Barça breaks historic club-level records in Spain and Europe.

The previous season with more commitments for the Catalans was the 2018-2019, with a total of 85 matches played. The Cup and League double, a result that Barça had not achieved since the 2010-2011 season with Xavi Pascual on the bench, he has demanded more than ever physically and mentally from coaches and players.

To get an idea of ​​the challenge, just state that in the 2009-2010 season, Barça played a total of 72 games to win the Super Cup, the Cup and the Euroleague, falling in the ACB Final against Baskonia in 3 games.

If the reduced format of the final Playoff in the Endesa League had not been given due to the pandemic and the Olympic Games, both Barça and Madrid could have approached or even exceeded 100 games in one year.

Real Madrid, which also beat its match record, has finished the year with 87 games played in his fifth season above 80 games. The final balance of Pablo Laso’s pupils has been 64 victories and 23 defeats.

The previous record for whites was in the 2017-18 and 2018-2019 seasons with 83 matches played.

By way of comparison with other great European champions, the Anadolu Efes has played only 71 games this course and the CSKA Moscow played a total of 72 when he won the 2019 Euroleague. Armani milan, Barça rival in the Euroleague semis, reached the 82 games this year.

A true competitive marathon that closes one of the most complicated years for national basketball and sport globally after the great shock of the coronavirus pandemic.
