The Bundesliga’s return has been a success and now is the time for LaLiga to continue. June 11 is the date written in your diary. Spanish football returned violently on Thursday night when the Seville derby between Sevilla and Real Betis resumed the 2019/20 campaign at the event.
It has been more than three months since Eibar lost 2-1 to Real Sociedad in the last match before the block at home, and you will forget which players and teams were in good condition before the tragic Coronavirus pandemic.
After the best players have been re-evaluated in the form before the block, this is the ideal opportunity to judge which team flew before the break and who didn’t, just one day after the return of the 2019/20 Laiga campaign.
Interestingly, the four best teams in LaLiga, where they are actually the most formal country. Barcelona currently lead Real Madrid by two points in the overall standings, with Sevilla in third place and Real Sociedad in last place to qualify for the Champions League in fourth place. All four clubs occupy the same place in the ranking of our team.
The ranking of team forms is based on six matches, chronologically weighted, so the latest results have the greatest impact. Barcelona have won five of their last six league matches before the block. The only defeat at Clasico near Madrid blew lives to the title race.
Not only did Zinedine Zidane’s team get better than Barcelona, they also defeated city rivals Atletico at the start of their six-match series. Unfortunately, they were unable to reduce the difference to Barcelona because they lost 2-0 to Classico on both sides.
The top 4 aren’t the only sides that appear correctly before the block. Betis Real, Levante and Alaves occupy 12th, 13th and 14th places in the league and 12th, 13th and 14th in our form guide.
However, this does not apply to all teams. In fact, some clubs like Valencia fight before the break. Los Che is seventh in the league, but only five teams are in worse condition than Albert Kelades (ranking form 6.61). Valencia have only won two of their last six league matches and were beaten 3-0 by Real Sociedad and Getafe in this match.
While Valencia might appreciate the opportunity to sit relaxed during the break, especially on the way to the Bernabeu to return in their second match, the others will not have the same mood.
For those at risk of degradation, Celta Vigo and Leganes, take a three-month break in bad weather. Leganes is second in the league, but with only two defeats in his last six league games, he ranks 11th in our form guide (score 6.64).
Meanwhile, Celta Vigo will continue the campaign in one place in the bottom three, but only five teams are in better condition before the block (score 6.72). Celtic are unbeaten in five league matches before football is arrested. They ran with Madrid and beat Sevilla in that order.
