The FC Barcelona and the Real Madrid split like favourites to win a League that will mark a before and an afterwards by the exceptional conditions in which it will contest
Around the middle of June will restart LaLiga Santander. The FC Barcelona will split like leader of the championship, with two points of advantage on the Real Madrid, the big candidate to snatch him the title to the team of Quique Setién. A totally historical competition and contested in exceptional conditions, in the middle of a world-wide pandemia that will mark completely his denouement.
One of the first conditionings of face to the denouement will be the absence of public in the parties. The two big of LaLiga will not have the support of his fans and of difuminará the factor field, that so important seemed to be along the history. The Camp Nou and the Gave Stéfano of Valdebebas -Santiago Bernabéu is in works- will receive the parties without the heat of the bloated.
Another conditioning could be the plague of injuries that could give after restarting the championship. The players already train with a minimum normality, but are not entirely lacking of competitive rhythm. The muscular problems can be especially severe with the turn to the parties and expect a lot of setbacks. Even they could give new contagions during the duels.
Like contrapartida of this last point, it is necessary to say that some lesionados of long length will arrive to time to play the final stretch of LaLiga, on the contrary of what had happened if the pandemia had not detained the football. In this case, the FC Barcelona will recover to Luis Suárez, operated in January, and the Real Madrid will follow suit with Marco Asensio, lesionado of gravity in summer, or Eden Hazard.
The calendar also will vary and will go back more tightened because of the need pro finish LaLiga before that they begin the European competitions in August. The FC Barcelona has to play six parties out of house and five home, whereas the Real Madrid will have more duels in his installations (five) that far of them (six). Something that, because of the factor explained of the parties without public, can be decisive.
Setién And Zidane, needed
Also there are needs in the benches. Quique Setién, that arrived in January to relieve to Erneto Valverde, did not achieve to improve the results of his predecessor, keeping to the team in a similar line. Zinedine Zidane was able to give one of cal and one of sand, combining enormous performances of his players -as, for example, in the two Classical- with tropiezos unexpected.
