Europeans are celebrating as their lives begin to somewhat get back to normal after the Coronavirus pandemic.
As we all know, Europe was heavily hit with the pandemic, causing basic life habits to be put off life essential needs becoming the “new normal” and reality. However, as the spread of the virus has slowed down, a few “normals” are back in place in Europe.
Just to Start!
For starters, the Spanish “La Liga” just announced this week that they will resume activity as of Monday June 8th with contact allowed practices and the first match to take place on Friday June 12th.
When all you can think of is that @LaLigaEN's return is getting closer… 😄

With the first match happening June 12th, here is what the resuming schedule would look like:
“Athletic Bilbao v Atletico Madrid
Celta Vigo v Villarreal
Mallorca v Barcelona
Real Madrid v Eibar
Real Sociedad v Osasuna
Sevilla v Real Betis
Valencia v Levante”
The English Premier has also announced its return after coming to a halt during a transfer window. With that in mind, it looked very promising for some sides that needed a boost like Manchester United to name one of those sides.
Most teams have already returned to contact-allowed practices but the remainder will return to full activity as of June 1st and will be resuming competitive activity as of June 17th:

With June 17th being the re-opening date, here is a sneak peek of the matches that will be played that weekend:
Tottenham vs. Manchester United.
Liverpool vs. Everton (Should Liverpool win, they will obtain the title).
Manchester City vs. Arsenal.
Aston Villa vs. Sheffield.
The Premier League will also implement a different system than that of the Spanish league. In other words, one game will be played on Fridays, four on Saturdays and Sundays, and then one on Mondays.
