LaLiga have confirmed that the next two matchdays in Spain’s top two divisions will be played behind closed doors due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
The virus has already led to the cancellation of a number of sporting events throughout the world, with Italy’s Serie A suspended until April 3.
Spain’s government has taken the decision to remove fans from LaLiga Santander and LaLiga Smartbank matches for the 28th and 29th matchdays in the top division and the 32nd and 33rd in the second tier.
Real Madrid will be most affected by the measure as they have two home matches during this period, first against Eibar on Friday, then against Valencia the week after.
All other LaLiga Santander sides will only have one home match over the two matchdays.
