Two members of Atletico Madrid’s group set to journey to Portugal for the Champions League quarter-finals have examined positive for COVID-19, the La Liga membership stated on Sunday. Both people who returned positive outcomes are self-isolating at residence. The membership didn’t reveal the identification of those that examined positive and didn’t verify if a player was concerned.
“Yesterday, Saturday August 8th, all the members of the first team and of the club’s Lisbon travelling party were submitted to tests… as per UEFA’s protocol to participate in the Champions League quarter-finals,” Atletico stated in a press release.
“Today, two positives appeared among the known results, which are now isolated in their respective homes and were reported immediately to the Spanish and Portuguese health authorities, UEFA, the Royal Spanish Football Federation, the Portuguese Federation and the Superior Council of Sports.”
Atletico confirmed the whole squad will probably be examined once more earlier than the workforce can journey for Thursday’s quarter-final in opposition to RB Leipzig in Lisbon.
