Great start for Regal Barca

Roger BogunyÓ


Regal Barša have made a great start to their season winning two titles and showing that they can play and win using a variety of tactics.


In the Liga Catalana and in the Super Cup semi finals they won by restricting their oponents scoring through a strong, concentrated defence - Sant Josep Girona scored 53 puntos, DKV just 38 and Gran Canaria 51.

Different story against Madrid

The team needed a reaction and they again looked to a strong defence, but this time combined with a much more positive response and they showed the stamp of champions powering through the final moments, despite a few pre-season jitters. This team, just as they did last year , already have the look of winners.

Squad strength

_61K2022.JPGThese four wins and the three pre-season victories have been achieved by the whole team, rather than depending on a few stars and as the group begin to gel even more, the outlook has to be positive for the season ahead. New signings Rubio, Mickeal, Morris, Lorbek and Ndong have already shown they can turn a game, with Ndong, Morris and Mickeal outstanding in the two games in the Canaries and Lorbeck decisive in the final moments of the Madrid game. With Ricky bringing an incomparable defensive intensity, the newcomers look to add to the foundations of last year's successful ACB winning team.
Great start for Regal Barca
Second double
The win over Madrid gave Regal Barša their second summer double, Lliga Catalana and ACB Super Cup. The previous season they managed both titles they went on to win nothing else in the regular season . Something that we all hope won't happen this time round!

This is also the first time that the FCBarcelona football and basketball teams have both won the Spanish Super Cups in the same season.
