When will Barcelona, Real Madrid restart their La Liga campaigns?

Spanish giants will restart their LaLiga season with a trip to Mallorca on June as their title rivals Real Madrid host Eibar the following day, the league confirmed on Sunday. 

Football activities in Spain have been suspended since March 12 due to the coronavirus pandemic but now the government has okayed to resume, under a strict safety protocol.

The Seville derby between Sevilla and Real Betis kick off the restart on June 11 before the two title contenders jump into the action two days later. 

Barca topped the table by two points when the league was halted, with Real Madrid in second place, nine points clear of third-placed Sevilla.

La Liga clubs will have to play 11 matches in just over a month as the league races to a July 19 conclusion. This is to allow teams in the Champions League and Europa League time to compete if the competitions are staged in August. 

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

Matches will be played behind closed doors, following a strict safety protocol as prepared by La Liga and approved by the Ministry of Health, with kickoff times taking into account the soaring summer temperatures in the different parts of Spain.

Teams returned to individual training earlier in May and have been working in groups of up to 14 over the past week. From Monday, they have the government's permission to return to full training.
