La Liga: Barca to resume defence June 13

Leaders Barcelona will travel to Mallorca on June 13 two days after the season gets back under way with Sevilla also facing Real Betis.

Real Madrid, two points behind Barca after 27 games, resume their campaign at home to Eibar the following day.

Organisers have only released scheduling details for the first two rounds of fixtures, although La Liga chief Javier Tebas confirmed there will be matches behind closed doors every day of the week until the season is completed on July 19.

Barca also host Leganes on June 16 and Real play at home to Valencia on June 18.

Weekday matches will kick off at 18:30 and 21:00, while weekend games will begin at 16:00, 18:30 and 21:00, with an extra slot at 12:00 if it is not too hot.

Applause from fans across the world will be played in stadiums in the 20th minute of matches to “show support for the heroes of the Covid-19 pandemic”, Tebas said.

La Liga will be the second of Europe’s top five leagues to resume after the delay caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Germany’s Bundesliga started again in May, while the Premier League in England is set to resume on June 17. –BBC
