Anybody knows when will be able to go back to play to football and LaLiga is more in the air that never. The initial plan is can go back to play in April, although the coronavirus looms with preventing it, since it expects that it go to more in the weeks to come.

The first, that is probably the one who all the teams and fans wish, would be to play the days postponed, are those that are, until the month of June. In this case, LaLiga would have several empty weeks in which can contest the crashes that go suspending during this crisis by the coronavirus. If the situation of alarm does not lengthen during a lot of weeks more, square the dates would be possible.
