Barça already reached 39 finals in Copa del Rey

"We Barça fans are very much spoilt." That was the reflexion Luis Enrique had yesterday after Barça qualified for another Copa del Rey final. For the past decade, the Blaugranas have been beating all records and Barça's Museum would have to make room to be able to display all the trophies.

In Copa del Rey, Barça have extended their dynasty and, in addition to being the team which won most trophies (27), they now became the team with most finals played alongside Real Madrid (39). These are figures that can be explained, mostly, by the spectacular efficiency of the recent times, when Barça reached the final in 6 of the last 8 editions. They only missed it in 2010 when they played against Sevilla in the last 16 round and in 2013 when they played against Real Madrid in semi-finals.

Moreover, the team's efficiency in the final is incredible. Barça won 3 of their last 6 finals and on the 21st of May they could get a fourth title. In the overall count, the winning percentage in Copa del Rey finals is 71%, as they won 27 of the 38 finals they played. Real Madrid howevern has a percentage of 48%, with 19 wins in 39 finals.
