After a forced break of three months, football returns to Spain in midweek. Deportivo will play four matches in a frame of nine days.

With Spain facing the aftermath after the COVID-19 crisis, football returns after three months confined. Primera División will open the final stage of the season with the Andalusian derby on Thursday, one day before, Rayo Vallecano and Albacete Baloimpié will play the final 45 minutes of their delayed game on the first round.

That game is crucial in the fight to avoid demotion as Albacete are currently tied in points with Real Oviedo and Deportivo. The purpose of ending this game now is to have all the teams at Segunda with the same number of matches played, which will help with the criteria to define the final positions in case a new suspension is needed.

As it was expected, the teams will have little time to recover from one game to another. Deportivo will have to play the first four games in the restart in a frame of only nine days. On Sunday the Galicians will host Sporting Gijón in an empty Riazor, while on next Wednesday they visit Real Oviedo.

Then, Depor host Rayo Vallecano on Saturday, June 20, and only three days later they will visit Elche CF. It’s expected that all of these games will be played behind closed doors. After this batch of games, only seven matchdays will be remaining.
