The Spanish La Liga has reached an agreement to start the 2020/21 season on the 12-13 September 2020, due to the coronavirus changes were made to the football calendar as outlined by Marca and communicated to the AFE player union.
However, there are still issues to iron out, not every team will start the season on matchday one due to the staggered end to the 2019/20 season. Real Madrid will start their season on matchday two while Atletico Madrid, Sevilla, and Barcelona will have a more delayed entry with their season starting on matchday three with the teams from the lower division after the playoff final between Elche and Girona as they play on Sunday 23rd August.
While the Copa del Rey final will most likely be played towards Christmas, while clubs were also informed there wouldn’t be any winter break as games are scheduled for new year’s eve. Supper cup has also been scheduled for January between Real Madrid and Barcelona, and a proposed date for Copa del Rey final is April 17, 2021.
Teams from the lower league are yet to complete their quota of promotion and relegation for Fuenlabrada, Deportivo La Coruna, and Numancia due to the coronavirus. Espanyol, Leganes, and Mallorca were relegated from the Spanish Laliga.
2019/2020 season winner.
Real Madrid won the 2019/20 season title for the first time since 2016/17, with total points of 87, this was the team’s 34th Laliga title-winning 26 game, eight draws and three loss on the road to lifting the title. The team conceded the least goal in the league, a record aided by the ever-present captain Sergio Ramos and goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.
Spanish la Liga 2019/2020 team of the season.
Presumably, the team of the season is dominated by real Madrid and Barcelona as usual;
GK: Thibaut Courtois, leads from the goal post as he has the highest save percentage in league with 79% of shots he came across while he kept 18 clean sheets.
RB: Dani Carvajal, an ever-present in the Real Madrid defence despite suffering a dip in form during 2018/19 season, he had a 77% success for all his tackle with 20 blocks as he helped his team to the title.
CB: Sergio Ramos, a leader and a true professional on and off the pitch, just don’t ask a Liverpool fan for proof. Ramos was rock solid for the team has the conceded just 25 goals and even took up the responsibility of the team’s spot-kick taker scoring 11 goals a new personal best I must say and that makes him a worthy champion.
CB: Diego Carlos, an integral part of Sevilla’s success this season as they conceded the third least goals for the season, a move from French club Nantes a season ago with little fanfare as helped him acclimatised to the Spanish game, making 35 appearances the second highest of the club.
LB: Sergo Reguilon, another Real Madrid player but on-loan at Sevilla, the 23-year-old show great dribbling and crossing ability with over 40 key passes in the season and was also involved in more than five goals for the club with steady feet in defence too.
CM: Saul Niguez, despite Atletico Madrid’s slow start to the season he was the light during the dark days of the season he won more than 59 tackles with only Casemiro winning more scoring six goals at the same, a reliable engine for Diego someone.
CM: Casemiro, a modest player in the galactico team who does all the dirty job in the middle of the game and stops the opponents game flow, he made more than 250 recoveries, 60 tackles and 68 interceptions this season with four assists to his name and he also scored three goals, the perfect fit for a midfield marshal.
RW: Lionel Messi, only Messi can have a bad season and still score 25 goals with 20 assists, despite missing a handful of games in the season due to injuries he won his seventh golden boot to overcome Telmo Zarro’s record.
LW: Mikel Oyarzabal, an emerging world-class winger who contributed ten goals and 11 assists as the team secured a sixth-place finish and a first Copa del Rey final appearance since 1988.
CF: Karim Benzema, the French striker has finally stepped up his game since the departure c.ronaldo from the team, and injury to Eden Hazard while he shouldered the scoring responsibilities of the team with 21 goals and eight assists.
CF: Gerard Moreno, a late bloomer with the 28-year-old scoring 18 goals as he finished third on the goalscorers chart, he also boast of three-goal from his first three international caps.
