La Liga to play every day

In order to finish the season on time, La Liga are expected to stage games every day, even starting at 11pm, throughout the summer.

The Bundesliga kicked off again yesterday, with both La Liga and Serie A set to begin group training from tomorrow, as the lockdown measures around the coronavirus pandemic are eased.

With a start date for fixtures around June 13, the rush is on to get the campaign concluded during the peak of summer.

According to Spanish newspaper AS, that will mean a game set for every single day in the week, with teams allowed at least 72 hours between matches.

Due to the extreme heat, some fixtures will kick off as late as 11pm, meaning they will start on one day and conclude the next morning.

The aim will be to conclude the season by July 29, so they can then prepare for the Champions League and Europa League in August.

Their medical protocol will be similar to the German model, so if any player or member of staff tests positive for COVID-19, they will be isolated and the others all retested.

Only the Italian Government is so far demanding that the entire group goes into a 15-day quarantine if a Serie A player catches coronavirus.
