La Liga can resume on 8th of June


Spain is set to join Germany and Portugal in resuming matches without spectators after Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said on Saturday that the league would be allowed to start up again from June along with other sectors of the economy.

The Spanish football league will also resume business, starting behind closed doors from June 8.

After all players of the 42 La Liga and Segunda División clubs finished tests for coronavirus, the clubs were allowed to conduct group training.

DAILY POST recalls that La Liga had been suspended for the past two to three months due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Meanwhile, Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich will take a four-point lead into Wednesday's top-of-the-table clash with Borussia Dortmund following a 5-2 entertaining victory over Eintracht Frankfurt.

La Liga had hoped to be able to play the second half of the Second Division game between Rayo Vallecano and Albacete, abandoned in December, on June 9 and then fully restart competition in the first and second divisions that weekend.
