If Juan Carlos Navarro has legendary stats in the King’s Cup, so does Xavi Pascual on the Barça Regal bench. The manager has won seven out of eight games in the Cup and has led his team to two titles. Pascual has won the last two editions of the Cup with Barça during his three-year tenure on the bench, a feat unequalled by any other coach, and he’s only 39 years old.

Another Cup win for the manager would mean that Pascual would become the second most winningest manager of the ACB era, just behind Aíto García Reneses (5 titles, 4 of them with Barça) and Dusko Ivanociv (4). Of the 77 editions of the Cup, Pedro Ferrándiz tops the list with 11 titles.

87.5% winning rate

Beyond the possible triple Cup crown, the winning percentage of Xavi Pascual’s team on the court is epic. The manager has won 87.5% of his games (seven wins out of eight matches). It’s the best rate out any manager since the ACB started. Only Aíto García Reneses, who won two titles in his first three years in the Cup, equals the current Barça manager.
