The matches will continue to be behind closed doors and without an audience, at least for now. This has been assured Salvador Illa in an interview on RAC1, where he has completely ruled out the return of fans to the situation of growth of coronavirus outbreaks throughout Spain.

“The entrance of people to the soccer fields, right now, is expendable. Seeing how the situation is, we can leave it for later. At this time it is not prudent, “he settled on the matter in RAC1.

Thus the hopes of teams such as Real Sociedad or FC Barcelona, ​​which had drawn up protocols to start recovering the fans in their stadiums, at least in European competitions, are over. UEFA opened its hand to the possibility of seeing the public in the Champions League, always with the permission of the local health authorities.

These words of the Minister of Health join those of the Minister of Health of the Generalitat, Alba Vergés, who has already slammed the door to Barça to their hopes of seeing fans in the Classic against him Real Madrid or in the Champions League match against him Ferencvaros.
