Barca vs Dynamo Kiev goes ahead as planned after negative Corona tests

Tue 03 November 2020 | 17:21

Champions League match, Barcelona against Dynamo Kiev, will be played as scheduled after the Ukrainian side did not post any new positive tests for Covid-19

Nine positive Covid-19 tests from earlier this week meant that

Dynamo

have named a travelling party of just 13 players from their ‘A squad’ list and one more absentee would mean that the match at the Camp Nou would be postponed.

Dynamo Kiev

have confirmed that

Georgy Tsitaishvili

,

Denis Harmash

,

Mikkel Duelund

,

Alexander Karavaev

,

Tudor Belutse

and

Mykola Shaparenko

have all tested positive this week, while

Buschan

,

Mykolenko

and

Boyko

were all already in quarantine following previous tests.

The absentees have hit the goalkeeping department – the club’s two first-choice goalkeepers are unavailable while the normal starting pair of full-backs are also now not involved.

Their 13-man squad of A-list players is the lowest number that can be named for UEFA to let the game go ahead, meaning that if one more player tests positive for Covid-19 before Wednesday night, the game would have to be postponed, as Marca said on Tuesday, but this possibility is now unlikely.
