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

The European elimination put an end to a disappointing season for Barša Sorli Discau.
