Peter Gulacsi

will miss the game after testing positive for COVID-19.

"

Jesse Marsch and Peter Gulacsi have tested positive for COVID-19 ahead of tomorrow's Champions League match versus Brugge and will not travel to Belgium. They were immediately isolated from the team and are in quarantine at home,"

said the club in a statement.

"The positive tests for Marsch and Gulácsi come in spite of all first-team players and staff either being vaccinated against or having recovered from coronavirus."

are in third place and RB Leipzig are in fourth place.
