Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez has announced that LaLiga will be cleared to return to action as of 8 June, when it is anticipated the country will be in phase three of the national coronavirus de-escalation plan and inter-province travel will be permitted once more. Real Madrid, Barcelona and the rest of the top-flight clubs can expect to play the first of their remaining matches on the weekend of 12-14 June, with the football authorities planning to kick off the postponed 2019-20 season run-in with Rayo Vallecano versus Albacetewhich was suspended last December – on 9 June.  

Sánchez explained during a press conference on Saturday that Spain will be in phase three by that date and the country will be operating to some degree of normalcy after the worst of the coronavirus pandemic has passed, paving the way for sporting events to be staged.
