The Spanish League, also known as La Liga, like most Leagues around to world, had an unexpected stoppage due to the Covid-19. Their last Matchday was the 27th, which meant they had 11 matchdays to go.

However, we have good news for the fans.

The Prime Minister of Spain, Pedro Sanchez, announced, in a press conference this Saturday, the return of football in the country. According to him, the worst part of the pandemic in Spanish soil is already over and the great wave of the pandemic has been overcome.

The possible date for the return of football is scheduled for the second week of June.

As authorized by the government, at the beginning of last week, the three big clubs in the country have already returned to training. The others are expected to return to their Training Centers this week.

In order to avoid new virus infections, Spain will follow Germany’s example. As well as the Bundesliga, La Liga games will be held behind closed doors. The Sports Council (CSD) emphasized the importance of a “responsible return” and thanked those involved.

The tournament organization has not yet released the exact dates of the matches, however, it should become a real ‘marathon’. Mainly because of the “tight” Spanish Calendar, due to the Champions League, which may return in August, and the national tournaments.

Because of that, the remaining 11 matchdays will have to be played between June and July.

Before the stoppage, Barcelona were the top of the league with 58 points, as a result of Lionel Messi’s amazing performances. Just 2 points behind them, there is Real Madrid. In third place, almost 10 points behind the second, we have Sevilla, and in fourth place, Real Sociedad. Atletico Madrid is in the 6th place, with 45 points.

The Top Scorer of the championship is currently the Argentine start Messi, with a total of 19 goals.
