La Liga names re-start date with a tasty derby set to open proceedings

The much-awaited successful of the Bundesliga has captured the attention of the soccer world albeit matches have been kept strictly behind closed doors. It’ll now be a fascinating follow-up to see which leagues decide to follow in their footsteps.

Spain has been badly affected by Covid-19 but their lockdown measures appear to be easing up considerably, and it means the return of La Liga is now in sight.

Real Madrid and Barcelona sit uncomfortably close to each other at the top of the table so it’s easy to imagine the legal squabbling that would commence if the league ended early, which is why it is the ardent hope that all goes well soon.

As reported by Football Espana, the action will be commencing on 12th June with a derby between Sevilla and Real Betis, although it’s not actually clear at this point if fans will be allowed to attend.

The Seville derby has the dubious distinction of being often underrated and the passion from the supporters is a key selling point, but unfortunately they will have to stay away this time around and lend their support in front of their television screens at home.

However it turns out finally, as long as all goes well then it will give football buffs more football to savor as some normality returns to the footballing world.
