After bouncing back from the two defeats in the Liga Endesa, and with Juan Carlos Navarro back to full form, Xavi Pascual’s men hope to confirm their good form in the Liga against Zaragoza. Barça Regal come into the match away to Zaragoza with the intention of securing its second consecutive victory in the domestic competition, after claiming another win the Euroleague against Lietuvos Rytas (49-67).

A victory to keep the streak going

“We feel better every day and I think we perform better each time we play. That’s what’s truly important,” said Erazem Lorbek when asked about the team’s recent string of victories. The Slovenian pivot hopes that the team will be able to continue its winning ways after beating Lietuvos Rytas. On this weekend’s rival, Lorbek said that “CAI are a good team, they have the capacity to play good games, especially when they play at home.”

October 1990, the last time Barça fell to Zaragoza

We must go back to October of 1990 to find the last time FC Barcelona Regal fell to CAI Zaragoza in Aragon. The Blaugrana were defeated in a match where three legends of Spanish basketball stole the limelight: Kevin Magee and Audi Norris, both scored 27 points apiece, and Mark Davis, scored 28 points.

Last season the Blaugrana managed to secure the win against Zaragoza (49-68). The man of the match was the ex-Blaugrana Boniface Ndong, who scored 17 points.
