Soccer will return this season to be able to finish its competitions with dignity in Spain. Although with the Copa del Rey It is not so clear that it can be contested this year because the idea is to do it with the public, The league It is already underway to be able to return to the playing fields. Of course, it will be a very exceptional end to the season due to the conditions in which it will do so.
In a five-week stretch, the rest of La Liga is scheduled to end 2019/2020. The initial date is yet to be seen, but it is clear that approximately every three days, the teams will have to play a match. This is an extra effort for all clubs, no squad will be saved and all will have to use more players than normal. If there were some professionals who were not counting too much for their coaches, at this time its time will come.
For health to prevail, the IFAB he has approved this season in an exceptional way that five changes can be made per game in matches, six if overtime is reached. If it was going to be a new football due to the fact that there will not be an audience, this question makes it even more special. The League will completely change and will surely change the trends of the teams. Some who seemed sentenced will resurface and others who went through great moments will have a worse time.
The fight for the title
If there is a team that stays with the short squad it is the Barca. Between injuries, sales and non-arrivals in winter, Quique Setién It has 18 players along with three more from the fixed subsidiary: Ansu Fati, Riqui Puig and Ronald Araújo. I will probably recover Luis Suarez and the signing, in that way, of Martin Braithwaite will complete a campus that will have to manage the Cantabrian.
Zidane cannot be completely unhappy with the break after not having lost Thibaut Courtois and have recovered Marco Asensio and that Eden Hazard have options to return. The Real Madrid will try to regain leadership with 24 more players Rodrygo Goes, although a problem has arisen with the injury of Luka Jovic. The Frenchman has rotated a lot during the season so the Brahim Diaz, Mariano and James Rodriguez they probably have one more option.
The third best
The Seville of Julen Lopetegui It has also made a difference this season. For this final stretch in the fight for third place, he recovered the pivot who had given confidence to the Basque coach, Fernando Reges. 20 more players will be those who make up the squad that tries to be the best team of the season behind Barça and Real Madrid, a number of players that could be a little scarce for this section.
One of the season’s revelations is the Real society. Imanol Sheriff has created a structure that has managed to reach the end of the Copa del Rey. Before the break by coronavirus settled in stalls Champions despite falling defeated against Barça by the minimum. The squad is not very large with 21 players, but this period has served to recover Asier Illarramendi already David Zurutuza, two great props to add to this template.
José Bordalás had achieved with its 24 players, along with the youth squad Hugo Duro, go one step further to the great performance he had shown in recent years with his Getafe. The ‘EuroGeta’ was dazzling in Europe after removing the Ajax and he is still waiting for you Inter of Conte. Before, he will look for the most fought Champions in recent years. Before the break he stayed in fifth position after a painful defeat against Sevilla and draw against the needy Celtic at home.
After removing the Liverpool of the Champions League, it cannot be said that Atlético de Madrid it went wrong before the break. But the reality is that he was sixth in the League after two consecutive draws. The rojiblancos, who had lost Álvaro Morata for several weeks, they will be able to count on him in search of recovering that theoretical third position that corresponds to him in Spanish football. Furthermore, the Cholo Simeone It will have 22 more players and two youth players with Diego Costa at full capacity too.
The tense calm of Mestalla after a season where Peter Lim decided to do without Marcelino García Toral with the team well placed on the table it is being difficult to manage. The elimination of the Champions at the hands of Atalanta It was painful and they bet everything to the letter of entering Europe for the next season. Without Garay, Albert Celades will have 24 players and the youth squad Hugo Guillamón to achieve a goal that has become very expensive for him Valencia.
Contenders to Europe
The Villarreal I was suffering just before the break. Three consecutive defeats have separated him from the fight for the Champions, but not from that of the Europa League. Javi Calleja has seen how Bruno Soriano he has been brought back into training after three years of agony. Along with him, 20 other professionals, and the young man Fer Boy that arose after the departure of Toko Ekambi, they will look for that place that allows them to regain their presence in Europe. It is not one of the most populated templates, but the individual quality augurs well for a good finish.
Although it deflated a little, the season of Pomegranate It is outstanding. With the ninth position he held before the break, he allows himself the luxury of being able to seek European positions after confirming that the seventh will go to Europe. With 23 players, Diego Martinez They will have to balance with their staff, but the level they have shown during the rest of the year accredits them to trust that they will be able to finish the campaign at the same height.
Looking towards the top of the table is the Athletic. Once the concern for the Copa del Rey final has been overcome, the heads only go to end the season in the best possible way. Gaizka Garitano It has its 25 healthy players and this vast squad will allow you, as long as you don’t have any mishaps, to have to choose from in those long calls that are planned for the restart of La Liga.
In the distance of money
The good first part of the season Osasuna and their figures in The Sadar They have earned him to be half a table. Although the distance is not final with 34 points, those of Pamplona breathe ahead of this return from the competition after the break by the Covid-19. They have more reasons to smile with the images of the ‘Chimy’ Ávila already working on the lawn of Tajonar. The forward will have options to return by the end of the season based on his progression after his serious injury. Even so, Jagoba Arrasate it has 24 other players to face this final stretch as compressed.
The Betis of Ruby He was not expected to be in the lower half of the table at this point in the season. The verdiblancos have been very inconsistent throughout the season although they stopped with the great news of the victory in the Villamarin against Real Madrid. Only eight victories are insufficient for a staff of 23 footballers of the stature of Sergio Canales, Nabil Fekir, Marc Bartra, Joaquín Sánchez and Borja Iglesias. Alone Loren Morón He was struggling with a season in which he had a great competition and has responded on goal basis. In addition, it recovers Juanmi Jiménez.
On the other bank of the Turia the concern is the descent. The I raised of Paco lopez he is surviving on what he has. This break has earned him to recover Hernani, a player who impressed in the first part of the season. Adding him, it will have 23 players. All your options will go through José Campaña, ‘Commander’ Morales and Roger Martí.
Asier Garitano I had a complicated job in Alaves at the beginning of the season and, although these complications are being confirmed, at the moment he is escaping from that fight for permanence. With 21 players and three with an affiliate record, Borja Sainz, Tachi and Ishmael, the Basque will have to manage his men very well during those five intense weeks of competition. In that pair Joselu – Lucas Perez The babazorras hopes are put to remain one more year in First.
The tail train
The Valladolid He is the leader of this train of tail after getting off the hook in the last days. Despite that important victory against Spanish, accumulated three dangerous defeats for his interests. The pucelanos have 22 more players Mohammed Salisu, one of the sensations of the season, and Stiven Plaza. It remains to be seen how important they are in this period Hatem Ben Arfa or Matheus Fernandes, two of the winter signings.
The one who was undoubtedly getting into the well little by little was the Eibar of Jose Luis Mendilibar. The worst record in the last five games is his with four losses and a single victory. The Basque coach has 24 personnel and has rotated a lot during the season, but he did not manage to find the key in the last part of the season. After the experience of that match against Real Sociedad behind closed doors, the coach has had time to look for a chip change in his players.
Óscar García Junyent welcomed the challenge of removing Celta from the well, a team with a mid-table squad but without morale and the defense somewhat touched. Jeison Murillo and Filip Bradaric they came to change that situation and the reinforcement of Fedor Smolov In attack, the mentality of the Vigo team ended up changing in part. The team will continue to depend on the heart of Iago Aspas despite having 24 players, which means that the Catalan coach will be able to rotate with guarantees.
The Majorca He was beginning to really suffer in the last stretch of the season before the break until he got into the relegation positions. After suffering two long-term losses with Baba Rahman and Koutris, could find replacement with Korean Ki and complete a staff of 24 troops. The reality is that 8 of them do not exceed 500 minutes during the season and that Vicente Moreno I didn’t count on them too much. The weight will fall on Take Kubo, Before Budimir and Save Seville, the most outstanding of the season with the central defender Martin Valjent.
Javier Aguirre optimistic faced the return of the competition. He will surely recover Alex Szymanowski after his long period off the pitch and will expand the squad of Leganes 21 players plus two with a file from the branch, Óscar Rodríguezcapital player and Bryan Gil, winter bet. The damage that made him lose Martin Braithwaite already Youssef En-Nesyri his potential attacker was reduced and the challenge will be to make the best of Roger Assalé, Miguel Ángel Guerrero and Guido Carrillo.
Espanyol is perhaps the most benefited of the three that occupy the relegation places. The reinforcements in the winter transfer market had changed the face of the team and, above all, has allowed them to have a higher wardrobe than the other two teams that have their names marked in red in the classification. The parakeets have 23 players plus two youth squads, Campuzano and Victor Gomez. Abelardo had gotten with Adrian Embarba and Raúl de Tomás recovering the nose for goals, his challenge now will be to plug the rest of the squad to fight for permanence.
