According to Spanish media, Barca is asking La Liga organizers to give the championship for themselves when the highest tournament in the country is considering plans to end the season early although there are 11 more rounds.
Is the requirement satisfactory?
As previously reported, on March 12, La Liga organizers announced that the tournament was postponed for at least 2 weeks due to the effects of the Corona Virus (Covid-19) epidemic. Although if you look at the reality with the complex evolution of this dangerous disease, the tournament is unlikely to return in early April.
The La Liga organizers are considering the plan to end the season right in the 27th round. According to the rules of the Spanish Football Association and La Liga does not consider the possibility of the championship team when the tournament is finished midway through. As such, the 2019/2020 season will not have a championship team if considered according to the above provisions.
Realizing the disadvantage if La Liga announces the end of the season early before 11 rounds, Barcelona is asking La Liga organizers to give the championship for themselves when the highest tournament in the country.
Based on the current rankings, Barcelona will be the champion team after 27 rounds, the Catalan team is leading with 2 points more than the rival Real Madrid. It will be the 27th title in the history of Barcelona. Barcelona is the consecutive La Liga 2020 champion for the last three years (2017, 2018 and 2019). Born in 1929, La Liga never had a pause in the season, except for the period from 1936 to 1939 due to the war.
After 27 La Liga 2020 rounds, Barcelona is leading with 58 points, more than Real Madrid. Despite losing to their major rival in the Super Classic match, Setien’s army still has many advantages to the throne in the remaining 11 rounds.
Encounter contrary opinions
But this proposal of Barca encountered many mixed opinions from other teams, including Real Madrid. These teams believe that giving the throne to Barca if La Liga 2020 ends in round 27 is not fair because they are only 2 points better than the second team. Meanwhile, if they continue the tournament in the next 11 rounds, it is unlikely that they will be able to maintain the top with their unstable form.
According to Sport Catalunya daily, La Liga 2020 is likely to end soon, although there are 11 rounds yet to take place. And at that time, the organizers of the tournament had to give the championship to Barcelona.
The newspaper showed an analysis: “Under this scenario, Barca will require the authorities to officially declare the championship of the tournament.
They will do so by making a number of arguments, such as the first time the tournament could not be completed, namely, only played 27 out of 38 rounds. The team will also justify the request in a different reality, which is to win the first leg, and are leading the rankings.
At that time, the first champion will become the final champion, if the Barca proposal is successful. However, Real will certainly oppose fiercely, because they are also competing for the championship.
The president of the Spanish Football Federation, Luis Rubiales, has the final say. However, if Barca recognized the champion, they would face a fierce reaction from Real Madrid.
Anyway, the final decision rests with the President of the Spanish Football Federation – Mr. Luis Rubiales. The early termination of the tournament is only an option if the tournament cannot return within the expected 2 weeks.
Recently, La Liga 2020 has recorded the first case positive for Corona Virus (Covid-19), which is defender Ezequiel Garay of Valencia.
