Spanish La Liga became the fourth league after the Bundesliga, Premier League and Serie A who decided to continue the campaign this season.
As an official statement released on Sunday (31/05), the Spanish La Liga Party claimed to have pocketed permission from the Spanish Government to continue the competition again. But, of course, without the presence of the audience and a number of established rules.
Despite the rules and the absence of supporters who were present in the stadium stands, still this is encouraging news, especially for the players. Since the league was suspended, they haven’t played for more than two months.
Before the suspension, La Liga had played 27 matches, meaning there were 11 matches left. Real Madrid and Barcelona still compete at the top of the table. The Quique Setien landing force is at the top, just 2 points ahead of rival clubs.
That is, competition is still open in the remaining 11 matches. Moreover, there is still competition between Sevilla, Real Sociedad, Atletico Madrid, Getafe to Valencia to penetrate the European Champions League zone next season.
Barcelona captain, Lionel Messi seemed enthusiastic about welcoming the Spanish La Liga competition to be rolled out again this season. Even so, he understood football in the midst of this pandemic was no longer the same as before, like other activities.
“Football, in general, will never be the same. But not only football, I don’t think life will ever be the same, “continued Messi.
