Former Barcelona president Joan Gaspart has claimed the LaLiga season would already be over if Real Madrid had been top when the competition was suspended in March due to the coronavirus pandemic.
"If Madrid had finished as leader before the confinement, La Liga would have ended," he told Tertulia del 10 del Barca, via AS, on Wednesday.
Barcelona star Lionel Messi is preparing for life in La Liga following the coronavirus pandemic and admits it will be strange to play again.
"I don't think anyone could have seen something like this coming. Some people warned that worldwide pandemics could happen from time to time, but I really never could have imagined it would unfold like it did, or the enormous impact it's having on virtually the entire world," Messi told adidas.
"When we start playing again, it will be like starting from scratch. We'll have some time to get ready before the league starts up, and we'll also get back key players on our team who were injured. Technically it will still be the same season, but I think every team and player will feel it's different."
