Home / Soccer News / Barcelona goes for an absolute record in Copa del Rey


BARCELONA – Champion in the last three editions of the Cup, FC Barcelona will be looking for a fifth consecutive final at Mestalla this Thursday, which would mean an absolute record in the centennial history of the tournament. He played four times twice, in what is the maximum and shares with Real Madrid, Athletic Bilbao (twice) and Zaragoza, and never linked these four trophies, which did conquer Madrid and Athletic.
To solve his classification in Valencia, Barca would confirm his absolute dominance in the Cup. Not only for being the club with more titles (29) but for being the great protagonist of the last decade: since 2009 he has played 7 of the 9 finals (would be 8 out of 10). And it would surpass, in this way, that mark of 4 consecutive finals that it matched in 2017 and it was maintained since the Zaragoza disputed between 1963 and 1966, with two victories and two defeats.

“When you win several you usually lower the importance of the titles,” agreed Valverde after eliminating Espanyol in the quarterfinals, denying that in the Barça dressing room the Cup was not considered a tournament to be taken into account. “Barcelona is one of the only clubs in which the titles do not add up, but they are discounted” Pep Guardiola said in his day, in a comment that discovers the reality in which the successful Barça of recent times has settled.
