Barcelona are seated atop of the table with just two points better than their rivals Real Madrid with 11 matches left to play this season.

The publication further reveals that players from the top two divisions will train individually after an agreement with Spain's sports and health authorities that guaranteed the safety of both players and staff.

Meanwhile, all the players must be tested before they can resume training as they prepare for the remainder of this campaign.

The country's top division has created detailed protocols for the return to training so proper health safeguards are observed. Part of this involves training sessions progressing from individual to small groups and then team training.

"These measures cover a period of approximately four weeks with different phases that, in any case, will be subject to the de-escalation process established by the government," a La Liga statement read.
