Three weeks after the Bundesliga became the first top league to resume from the coronavirus enforced break, other leagues are following suit with La Liga and Coppa Italia returning this weekend.
The first game in the Spanish top-flight after almost three months out was played on Thursday as Sevilla held the bragging rights over Real Betis in the El-Gran Derbi.
Goals from Lucas Ocampos and Fernando secured the three points for Julen Lopetegui’s side in an empty Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan stadium. Fans are not allowed into the stadium, and that will be the new order in football at least until the end season.
Sevilla’s clash against Betis was the first of many interesting games set for this weekend, and Soccernet picks out some of the matches that fans should look forward to.
The two iconic Spanish clubs will go to war at the San Mames Stadium on Sunday and a lot is at stake.
Diego Simeone side currently sit outside the champions league spots even though just one point separates them and Real Sociedad who are fourth on the table.
Meanwhile, Bilbao sit in tenth place with 37 points, but they still have an outside chance of qualifying for the Europa League next season.
A win for Bilbao will put them five points behind their opponents on Sunday, while the Rojiblancos can move into the top four with a win on Sunday if other results go their way.
Nevertheless, this is a game not to miss.
