International Soccer | CoronavirusLiverpool almost grabbed the Premier, Juve and Bayern are in the fight …
ANDlball has stopped rolling in the big leagues. The spread of the coronavirus in Europe has led the main tournaments to stop with their competitions halfway. However, the storm will pass and LaLiga, Premier, Serie A, Bundesliga and Ligue 1 will return in search of their champions.With the European Championship postponed to 2021, all will go into the summer to put the end.
* Postponed with no return date
Barcelona and Real Madrid are fighting for LaLiga in a combat full of slips from each other. Those of Zidane were placed leaders after winning (2-0) to those of Setién in the Classic … but they lost the lead on the day before the suspension when they fell (2-1) at Villamarín against Betis.11 days from the end, the Catalans have two points ahead of Real Madrid … although the ‘golaverage’ is for the white team.The pulse will last until the end.
Liverpool already grabs almost with both controls its first Premier. The ‘reds’, who have not sung alirón since 1990, will be champions if they win two games out of the nine they lack. Klopp’s team has 25 points ahead of Manchester City, which has a pending clash against Arsenal at Etihad. The ‘Pool’ has 27 points to play and the citizens 30, so any failure by Pep Guardiola would advance the achievement of a Premier that will not return, in any case, before April 30. Those of Klopp, who sign a record course, could win the title before anyone else – the five days in advance with which they won the 2001 trophy the United of Ferguson is the best brand – but later than ever, already .. Stepping on June!
* Postponed until April 3
Juventus took the lead before the suspension heading to its ninth consecutive Scudetto.Those of Sarri have a surprising advantage over Lazio that with the Immobile Golden Boot and the Spanish Jony, Patric and Luis Alberto have been 21 days without losing. Inter, nine from the lead with one less shock, is already far away. Twelve days from the end – Series A was one of the first tournaments stopped by the Covid-19 and its fixed return date, although unlikely, is April 3 – the duel between Cristiano’s ‘Vecchia Signora’ and Lazio in Turin four games from the conclusion will be key.
* Postponed until April 2
On Matchday 14, Bayern was seventh to seven points clear of the leader, Gladbach.It seemed that his eighth salad bowl in a row was escaping … but Flick’s started a comeback that has led them to the lead with four more points than Borussia Dortmund. The slump of RB Leipzig, Gladbach … has helped Lewandowski and company hunt down the leadership. With nine matches still to be played in a Bundesliga postponed at least until April 2, Bayern’s visit to Dortmund on matchday 28 will mark the tournament.
* No return date
No one can keep up with PSG, who takes 12 points from Marseille with one less game. If the Parisians defeat Strasbourg in the clash that they have pending, they would lead by 15 to an OM whom they will visit on matchday 30. With 10 acts still to be disputed in a Ligue 1 that has not set a restart date, Neymar, Mbappé .. They could take the title early if they keep up the current pace.
* Postponed in the Eredivisie until April 1 and without date in Portugal
The Eredivisie and the Liga NOS are on fire.Ajax is a leader with the same points as AZ. The two defeats of the ‘ajacied’ in the last three days compressed a tournament with eight duels remaining and that would return on April 1. And in Portugal, whose League is suspended sine die 10 shocks from the end, Porto leads with one more point than Benfica who have only won one of their last five games. A bad streak that has given the ‘dragons’ wings.
