La Liga, Spain’s premier soccer league, is set to return on June 11th. This past weekend, league president Javier Tebas announced the plans to return, and La Liga followed up with the full schedule for the first two matchdays back.

The season will resume on the 11th with a derby match between Sevilla and Real Betis at 4 p.m. ET. That will be followed by seven straight days of matches as La Liga works to make up for lost time with two matchdays in that period.

Barcelona currently leads La Liga with 58 points on 18 wins and 4 draws. Real Madrid is right behind them at 56 points, and those two are the primary competitors for the league title. Sevilla FC follows with 47 points, and then Real Sociedad and Getafe at 46 points and Atletico Madrid at 45 points. The latter four are competing for two Champions Leagues berths at this point.

On the bottom end of the table, Mallorca (25 points), Leganes (23), and Espanyol (20) are in the relegation spots, with Celta Vigo (26), Eibar (27), and Real Valladolid (29) right in the mix heading into the restart.
