All Spanish first and second division games could be postponed starting this weekend due to the coronavirus. According to local radio, the Spanish federation will propose the plan.

An emergency meeting has already been called between La Liga, the federation, and the Association of Spanish Footballers to decide next steps to halt a global pandemic which is causing similar delays, closures, and changes across the world.

It’s already known that Barcelona’s game against Napoli in the UEFA Champions League would be played without fans, as will all Spanish football for at least two weeks. This would be an even further step to ensure the virus has less chances to spread.
