Football | Coronavirus Many leagues are in the balance

The ball has stopped rolling around Europe due to the spread of coronavirus, bringing all of the top leagues to a standstill.

But the storm will eventually pass and LaLiga Santander, Serie A, the Premier League, Ligue 1, the Bundesliga and the rest will return in search of their champions.

With the European Championship set for 2021 now, the summer is likely to see the remainder of each country’s domestic campaigns played out.

Postponed with no set return date.

The Clasico pair are locked in a battle atop the table and they keep taking turns to overtake each other in first place.

Barcelona are currently two points clear of Real Madrid, but Los Blancos have an advantage should they end the season with the same tally.

Postponed until April 30 at the earliest.

With one hand on the title already, Liverpool are as good as champions.

They haven’t won the English league title since 1990, but Jurgen Klopp is about to change their recent domestic suffering.

Twenty-five points clear of Manchester City, the Reds can win the league earlier than anyone else in Premier League history.

Postponed until April 3

Juventus got their noses in front before the action was suspended and they have a narrow lead over surprise package Lazio, who themselves sit ahead of Antonio Conte‘s Inter.

Twelve rounds from the end, Serie A were one of the first leagues to put a stop to the action and their return date does seem unlikely.

Postponed until April 2

Bayern were seven points off top after 14 rounds and it appeared as though they were falling away.

But they’ve since come back to top the table and they are four points clear of Borussia Dortmund in second.

The Bavarians will have to visit Dortmund on matchday 28.

Postponed indefinitely

With a 12-point lead, nobody can tough PSG in France.

They have a game in hand against Strasbourg, which could extend their lead to 15 points.

No return date for Liga NOS and the Eredivisie is postponed until April 1

Both Portugal and the Netherlands boast title races.

Ajax lead the way in the Netherlands, but they have the same number of points as AZ Alkmaar with eight games to play.

Porto top the charts in Portugal, with Benfica just one point behind and 10 games still to play.
