LaLiga suspended: How the LaLiga season might end

1. Complete the season

The LaLiga might decide to halt the season for a while and resume LaLiga action only when the Coronavirus threat lowers.

2. Cancel the season

Cancelling the entire season is a high possibility if the Coronavirus situation is not solved soon. There will be no winners or relegations. Promotions from lower divisions will also not be an option if the season cancels. 

3. End it now/Use the halfway table

It might so happen that LaLiga officials might just end the season and declare the winners looking at the current points table. If that happens Barcelona will be crowned as the winners as they are leading the points table by 2 points. 

It might take some time for LaLiga to come up with a firm decision.
