Madrid – Czech national team players Jan Veselý and Tomáš Satoranský helped Barcelona win the jubilee 20th title in the Spanish basketball league. Their team won the final series with Real Madrid 3-0. Today, the Catalans decided to win on the opponent's field 93:82.
Vesely participated in the win with 19 points and was the best scorer of the match. In addition, he added three rebounds in 20 minutes played. Satoranský contributed eight points, four assists and four rebounds. Walter Tavares scored 19 points for Real, who also grabbed 10 rebounds and recorded a double double.
Both Czech representatives, who met in Barcelona before this season, used the team's last chance to win this year's trophy . In the Europa League, Barcelona finished fourth after losing in the semi-finals to Real, who eventually dominated the competition. They did not even succeed in the Spanish Cup and in the Super Cup last September they also lost to Madrid's rival.
However, the team of coach Šarunas Jasikevičius clearly dominated the league final and improved their head-to-head record with Real this season to 6:3. Barcelona avenged the “White Ballet” defeat in the final of last year's ACB league and returned to the domestic throne after two years.
