A season that justifies history

The most prolific of all the FC Barcelona sections, with a total of 98 titles, has had a season that shows just how hard it was to achieve so much in an elite sport like this.

Barša are used to winning just about every competition they enter, but this season had to make do with the Copa del Rey and the Continental Cup. It all goes to show that even the biggest clubs can have the occasional blip, and even in a relatively poor season, Barša Sorli Discau still managed to win two trophies.

Irregular in OK Liga

The European Supercup was won by Vic, and a week later saw the start of a Liga season that featured too many ups and downs for the first team, with unexpected defeats to teams they usually beat easily. But they stayed in the hunt until the end, before eventually seeing the title go to their old rivals from Reus, all thanks to Barcelona’s own win on the final day against Liceo at the Palau.

More fortune in Copa del Rey

The Copa del Rey came shortly after Barša had won the Continental Cup in Bilbao against an excellent Liceo. In the Spanish knockout cup at the Nova Ciutat Esportiva in Blanes, FCB produced their best hockey of the year to power past Vilanova, Liceo and Reus and get their hands on the coveted trophy.

Disappointment in Final Eight

Despite having three weeks to prepare for the Champions League, knowing that the OK Liga challenge was over after drawing 2-2 with Reus, Barša crashed out to a golden goal in the quarter final to Porto.

The new Final Eight format means teams have to get it right three times in a row, and despite playing a near perfect qualifying competition, Barša Sorli Discau, found themselves going out at the very first hurdle when it really mattered. The European elimination put an end to a disappointing season for Barša Sorli Discau.
