Great news for LaLiga

LaLiga has been given a green light to resume the season from June 8, following guidelines from Spain's Ministry of Health.


However, from LaLiga have not confirmed an official date of returning, but the president Javier Tebas previously said that he hopes for a restart from June 12.



There has been no football action in Spain since March due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, but currently Barcelona are two points ahead of Real Madrid with 11 games left for play.



The clubs in LaLiga are currently training in small groups, following the government guidelines.


Earlier this month Tebas expressed his idea of playing the stage matches every day once the season resumed.


"That's what I hope," Tebas said. "We shouldn't have any problems playing on Mondays across the eleven rounds of matches we have left to play.


"I hope for some sense from the Spanish Football Federation on this, because it's very important for us to be able to give both our national and international broadcasters, and fans across the world, football on as many days as possible to ensure as little disruption as possible."



Spain has been one of the countries which has been worst affected by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, but the number of death cases has dropped significantly as on Friday were registered only 56 deaths.


However, Spain is among the countries that has eased the lockdown and in Barcelona and Madrid is now allowed to have small gatherings with up to 10 people.



The coronavirus affected the football world very badly, but in some ways it helped some of the players recover from their injuries.


For example Eden Hazard is now ready to return to action after he undergo a surgery to his ankle in February.


The Belgian was ruled out for the rest of the campaign, but the two-month suspension allowed him to play again this season.
