"We started to work with the Russian public health authorities and started to apply the corresponding UEFA protocol," Tarkovic said through a translator.

"So we took all the steps to avoid the spread of the infection."

UEFA protocol states that the teams with fewer than 13 players could have their game rescheduled within the next 48 hours of the date of the relevant game and possibly even at a different venue.

Also, any additional player called up to meet the minimum of 13 players requires that an equivalent number of quarantined players are definitively withdrawn from the 26 players list.
