The remainder of the Spanish La liga will kick start on Thursday evening with one of the most fiercely contested derby fixture in the Spanish game between Sevilla and Real Betis.

The 11 remaining matches are expected to be played behind closed doors and the coach of Sevilla, Julen Loptegui has described the Seville derby as a historical one.

“It’s going to be a historic derby,” Lopetegui declared in his pre-match press conference.

“The match is going to be played and we have to find a way to adapt to this context, especially as we’re facing a very good opponent in Real Betis.

“There will be repercussions from this match felt around the world.”

The leadership of the league have put measures in place to ensure that the health of players and staff are not compromised as the resumption of the league edges closer than ever.

“We have been able to do very little, we have tried to train in a rigorous way by differentiating by clothing, but that is anecdotal,” Lopetegui confirmed.

“The important thing is that we’ve been able to train.

“We have worked well through the different phases, and whilst we would all have liked more time, even discussing that is somewhat out of place, the positive aspect is that football is coming back and we all have to congratulate ourselves that this is now a reality.”
