We’ve got a second restart from Europe’s top four leagues, as Spain’s prime minister has cleared La Liga for a return from June 8.

Germany has already returned and is playing its second match week this weekend, while Serie A and the Premier League are in training for possible June returns.

So what’s the state of play in Spain, where Barcelona is seeking its third-straight domestic title and first under Quique Setien?

Barca has a two-point lead on Real Madrid and there isn’t a Clasico left on the docket. No one else is within sniffing distance of the league’s two biggest clubs.

The third of that bunch is conspicuous in its absence, as Atletico Madrid has slipped to sixth but is just two points off-third place Sevilla. Real Sociedad and Getafe sit between the two and are very much alive in the race of a UCL group stage spot.

Valencia is within shouting distance of the top six and a Europa League place, while a trio of chasers could reasonably hope to crash the part over the final 11 matches.

As for relegation, Catalan side Espanyol is 38 points behind its neighbors Barcelona and six points back of the 17th place held by Celta Vigo. Mallorca and Leganes are between the two and could escape the drop zone with wins. Eibar and Valladolid are also not clear of danger.
