Manchester City may not play Madrid in the scheduled match following one player testing positive for COVID-19. Real Madrid’s Mariano Diaz has tested positive of COVID-19 and will, therefore, miss Champions League match against Man City. Diaz is in quarantine and self-isolation.
The 26-year-old has only had four appearances for Real Madrid this season coming in as a substitute.
The Champions League will resume on August 7th with Real Madrid expected to face Man City at Etihad Stadium. Man City won in the first leg beating Real Madrid 2-0 in Spain.
Spain is on UK’s quarantine list due to the recent cases of COVID-19. This puts the Champions League 2nd leg match between City and Madrid in serious doubt because of the COVID-19 results.
Although Real Madrid have been exempted from the strict rules that prevent Spain travelers from travelling to the UK, the positive COVID-19 case could sadly prevent the second leg match from happening.
The most followed leagues are coming to an end. Soon all the focus will turn to the Champions League scheduled to start in August.
