Two contributors of Atletico Madrid’s team set to go back and forth to Portugal for the Champions League quarter-finals have examined sure for COVID-19, the La Liga membership stated on Sunday. Both people who returned sure effects are self-isolating at house. The membership didn’t divulge the identification of those that examined sure and didn’t confirm if a participant used to be 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 remark.

“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 showed all of the squad will likely be examined once more before the staff can go back and forth for Thursday’s quarter-final towards RB Leipzig in Lisbon.
