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 thatDynamo
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.
have confirmed thatGeorgy Tsitaishvili
have all tested positive this week, whileBuschan
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.
