Following a three month hiatus due to the pandemic, Spain's La Liga football league is back and we have all the details on how you can watch Saturday's highly anticipated match between Barcelona and Mallorca.
The 2019-2020 season will pick up right where it left off with just 11 games left on the schedule for the rest of the season. Barcelona currently sits in top place in the standings followed closely by its long term rival Real Madrid. However, if Barcelona and its star player Lionel Messi can continue to play the way they did before the season was suspended, the team could end up earning its third successive league title this year.
Barcelona will travel to Palma de Mallorca this Saturday where it will take on RCD Mallorca at its home stadium. While Barcelona holds the top spot in La Liga with 18 wins and 5 losses this season, Mallorca currently holds the number 18 spot with 7 wins and 16 losses, so the team will certainly have its work cut out for it. There will also be no fans in attendance at Saturday's game which means Mallorca will lose out on the home field advantage.
Whether you're a Barcelona fan, a Mallorca fan or just want to tune in to see the return of La Liga this weekend, we'll show you how to watch Barcelona vs Mallorca on TV or online from anywhere in the world.
