The Liverpool won the title after 30 years and Juventus has directed, while Madrid and Barcelona They are still fighting for a championship that will end on July 19. That day the Spanish tournament will close the door until September 12, giving away a few weeks without soccer for the teams of our country before the Champions League resumes, with Madrid visiting City and Barça receiving Naples to try to travel, together to the Athletic to the final phase of Lisbon starting on August 12 in Portugal ... if regrowth permits.
FORMULA 1 . The signing of Carlos Sainz by Ferrari was the great news of the paddock during the quarantine, but the Spanish will have to wait until next year to debut in red. Meanwhile, he will have the opportunity to assert himself in an eight-race express championship that will start with a double in Austria. Lewis Hamilton , more vindictive than ever during the confinement, starts again as a favorite, while Mercedes, his team, has not yet confirmed his pair of pilots for 2021, a season in which the possible return of Fernando Alonso will continue flying over the circuits .

TENNIS . With the domination of positives left by Novak Djokovic's controversial Adria Tour , the circuit has more doubts than ever.
