Spanish football in turmoil

Spain's domestic football is set to be suspended from May 16 but the league is taking legal action against that.

    There are two games left in Spanish football's top division.

    Barcelona are sitting top of the table in La Liga with European champions Real Madrid four points behind.

    The end of the Spanish football season, however, could be ruined by a dispute over a new law.

    The national federation will suspend Spain's domestic football from May 16 but the league is taking legal action to stop that from happening.
