A look at what’s happening around European soccer on Tuesday:

ENGLAND

Manchester United travels to Brighton enjoying a 14-match unbeaten run in all competitions which started before the three-month shutdown of football. United, which reached the FA Cup semifinals on Saturday, is three points behind fifth-placed Wolverhampton in the Premier League’s chase for the final Champions League spot.

Brighton is six points clear of the relegation zone with seven games remaining.

SPAIN

Barcelona needs a home win against a red-hot Atlético Madrid to try to avoid losing more ground to leader Real Madrid. Barcelona dropped two points behind Madrid after drawing at Celta Vigo this weekend. Third-placed Atlético Madrid has won four straight entering the match against Barcelona at Camp Nou Stadium. Fourth-placed Sevilla visits Leganés, and Mallorca hosts Celta Vigo in a match between relegation-threatened sides.

ITALY

Lazio has a chance to apply some pressure on the Serie A leader when it visits Torino ahead of Juventus’ game at Genoa. Lazio trails Juventus by four points as it chases its first Italian league title in two decades. Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi is suspended for the game after getting sent off for protests at the end of a 2-1 comeback win over Fiorentina. Eight-time defending champion Juventus has not conceded a goal in four matches across all competitions since the restart.

Coronavirus: OC summer youth sports programs placed on hold after reopening for 3 weeks

ANAHEIM, Calif. (KABC) -- Three weeks after Orange County leaders gave youth sports the green light to resume workouts under state guidelines, the California Department of Public Health pulls the plug, saying current guidelines do not allow for youth sports to resume.

The County Office of Education reached out to the state for clarification on the guidelines, after hearing some confusion. Although disappointing, the athletic community knows things are changing day to day.

"Our coaches are trained and ready to go back again. They just now went back into their virtual summer camps where a lot of them are doing Zoom meetings like this," said Ed Howard with the Orange Unified School District.

Howard oversees the athletic programs in the Orange Unified School District where some of their sports started practice about a week ago under specific health and safety protocols.

"We know how vital it is to the growth and development of our young athletes and our young students to get them out there, get them active, get them involved. These last four months have been really hard on them and really hard on our coaches too, cause that's their passion," said Howard.

Sean Brashear knows that struggle. He's the head varsity softball coach at Mater Dei High School in Santa Ana.

"I'm 49 years old, it's not easy for me to try to figure out what's going on in the world and the pandemic and trying to be smart and educated in the world that we're within. But at the same time, making sure that we don't lose sight of these young, you know, young people," said Brashear.

He encourages his athletes to focus on today, not competitive play in the future.

"Not to get lost in worrying and concerning ourselves as to when and how that may come about," said Brashear.

The Orange County Department of Education advises districts to hold off until there is specific guidance by the state health department on recreational team sports or school based sports.
