LaLiga has been suspended since March due to the Coronavirus pandemic. But things are starting to look brighter now. They are following the footsteps of Bundesliga, which became the first major football league to resume the season on 16th May.
LaLiga is hoping to resume the 2019-20 season on 12th June. The clubs have returned to training and have been allowed to train in groups, recently.
Real Madrid have been the better side this season, winning the El Clasico. But unfortunately, they slipped up the lead and Barcelona sit on top of the table with a 2-point lead before the season was halted by Coronavirus.
Real Madrid teenage sensation Vinicius Jr told Marca when asked if Real Madrid were better than Barcelona in the two El Clasico’s this season: “I’ve watched the games again and I think so. I think we were better than them in more aspects. We’ve had very good games until now and we have to recover our best form.”
“We’re really hungry to come back, to win, and we want to win this league title for our fans. People have suffered a lot and we want to give Real Madrid fans something to cheer about in this situation.”
“We know that winning the league isn’t going to be a solution for big tragedies, but it would be something to smile about, something to be happy about.”
Vinicius further added: “The result against [Real] Betis [2-1 loss] was a great shame. Now, we have a mission we can’t fail. We can’t fail and we’re not going to fail. We may have only returned [to training] 11 days ago, but everyone’s rhythm looks good.”
“We’ve still got lots of group work to do because we can’t do it yet, but all my team-mates are very strong and very well. There’s still quite a bit of work left to do, but we’re feeling good.”
There are still 11 matches remaining in the 2019-20 season and Real Madrid would hope to outscore Barcelona to lift the LaLiga title for their fans.
Real Madrid also lost 2-1 to Manchester City at the Santiago Bernabeu in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie. The second leg has been postponed due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The Champions League is hoping to return in August.
Vinicius said: “If the Champions League returns, it will be great news not only for football but for the world. Being able to play games in other countries will be a very positive sign because we’ll be closer to normality.”
“The result of the first leg [against Manchester City] was bad, but we’re Real Madrid. Our obligation is to prepare ourselves well and, if this game comes, when everything is over, every Real Madrid fan can say: they gave everything, we’re proud.”
