With La Liga set to return tonight after the Christmas break, almost evert club is feeling the effects of Covid with over 100 players reported to have tested positive upon their return.

With Spain's self-isolation period still at 10 days, players should only miss this weekend's matches but it will be interesting to see how clubs cope with their missing players.

There will also be reduced capacities across many stadia by as much as 50% in some regions.

Things are looking worse at Barcelona, Ousmane Dembele, Samuel Umtiti, Gavi, Clement Lenglet, Dani Alves, Jordi Alba, Alejandro Balde, Philippe Coutinho, Sergino Dest and Ez Abde.

I've read that Barcelona are without 14 first team players for their match with Mallorca!

If you're playing La Liga Fantasy Marca, I hope that you're prepared for this although as things stand, we don't have the postponements that we've been seeing in the Premier League to contend with.

How could I prepare for this? 😁

🤷‍♀️ If only I knew! I only have Benzema as my fit forward so if he catches it too then I'm down to 10 men already! And given how many Real Madrid players have it, it's quite likely!

I don't think we have the last of covid. I think more games will be cancelled and players testing positive will continue.
