Template:Infobox football league season The 2019–20 La Liga season, also known as La Liga Santander due to sponsorship reasons with Santander, is the 89th since its establishment.

Barcelona are the two-time defending champions after winning La Liga last season for the 26th time. Osasuna, Granada and Mallorca join as the promoted clubs from the 2018–19 Segunda División. They replaced Rayo Vallecano, Huesca and Girona, who were relegated to the 2019–20 Segunda División.

On 12 March 2020, the league and the Segunda División were suspended for at least two weeks due to the coronavirus pandemic in Spain. The league was suspended indefinitely on 23 March.[1]

Teams[edit source | edit]

Promotion and relegation (pre-season)[edit source | edit]

A total of 20 teams contest the league, including 17 sides from the 2018–19 season and three promoted from the 2018–19 Segunda División. This includes the two top teams from the Segunda División, and the winners of the play-offs.

Teams relegated to Segunda Division

The first team to be relegated from La Liga were Rayo Vallecano. Their relegation was ensured on 5 May 2019, after Real Valladolid beat Athletic Bilbao 1−0, suffering an immediate return to the Segunda Division.[2] The second team to be relegated were Huesca, who were also relegated on 5 May 2019 after a 2−6 home defeat to Valencia, also suffering an immediate return to the second tier.[3] The third and final relegated club were Girona, who concluded their two-year stay in La Liga in a 1−2 away loss at Alavés on 18 May 2019.[4]

Teams promoted from Segunda Division

On 20 May 2019, Osasuna were the first to be promoted, after a two-year absence, following Granada's 1−0 win against Albacete.[5] The second team to earn promotion was Granada after their 1−1 draw against Mallorca on 4 June 2019. This marks an end to a two-year absence in the first division.[6] The third and final team to earn promotion to La Liga was play-offs winner Mallorca, after coming back from a 2-goal deficit against Deportivo La Coruña on 23 June 2019. Mallorca return after a six-year absence from Spain's top flight, spending one of those years in the Segunda División B and achieving two consecutive promotions.[7]
