Late April is the most optimistic; the middle of May is the most pessimistic

With UEFA agreeing to postpone Euro 2020 until 2021 and the Copa America delayed until next summer as well due to the coronavirus, La Liga president Javier Tebas is now working on possible scenarios for La Liga to restart. 

Spain's top-flight still has 11 games to be played, with Barcelona currently top of the league, and Tebas is studying three possible hypotheses. 

In the case that the pandemic slows, the competition would restart on April 23. In the case that things evolve a little slower, the league would kick off again at the beginning of May. 

The third, more pessimistic start date, is May 14 and would mean the season would have six weeks to be finished before the end of June. 

The president of the Spanish FA, Luis Rubiales, doesn't want to speak about start dates but insists that June 30 does not represent a deadline to conclude everything. 

Rubiales wants everything to be fully completed, even if that means a delay to the start of next season, but only when the spread of coronavirus has been stopped. 

Meanwhile, the Champions League final could move to June 27 in Istanbul, with the Europa League final tipped to be moved to June 24 in Gdansk.
