Barça Regal will be one of the four teams that will fight, from the 11th to the 13th of May, for the Euroleague title in Istanbul. The team led by Xavi Pascual have managed to be a permanent fixture in the Final Four. In the four seasons that Pascual has managed the team, Barça Real have made it to the the Final Four playoffs in Berlin, Paris and Istanbul. In Paris, the Catalan side won the second Euroleague title in the Club’s history, beating CSKA in the semifinals and Olympiacos in the final.

Barça are one of the big teams in the competition, with five Final Four berths in the last decade, 12 in total. The balance is two Euroleague titles won (2003 and 2010); four runner up spots (1990,1991, 1996 and 1997); third (2009) and four fourth place finishes (1989, 1994, 2000 and 2006).

The sixth Final Four appearance for Navarro

Juan Carlos Navarro will be the team’s player with the most appearances in the Final Four when the Club plays in Istanbul this May. The current Barça captain will play in his sixth Final Four playoff, which will see him best records set by historic players like Andrés Jiménez, who playd five, or Epi and Dueñas, both of whom played four. This will be Víctor Sada and Erazem Lobek’s fourth appearance.

Olympiacos and Montepaschi, possible rivals in the semifinals

Olympiacos and Montepaschi Siena are Barça Regal’s possible rivals in the semifinals. Both teams have won one match in the quarterfinals. Xavi Pascual’s men, having seen off Unics Kazan, await a rival. Barça qualified for the Final Four with a record of 18 wins and only one defeat in the Euroleague. The loss came at the hands of Siena, during a rather meaningless match for Barça seeing that they had already secured qualification to the next round.
