Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos reported on Tuesday that he has tested positive for the coronavirus.
A brief statement from Madrid stated that Ramos was affirmative in the last test he experienced. No further details about his condition were provided.
Ramos has been excluded from the second leg of the UEFA Champions League game against Liverpool on Wednesday due to a muscle injury in his left leg.
Madrid’s other starting centre-back, Raphael Varane, will not take action in England after a positive result. They also missed the first leg last week, when the Spanish team won 3-1.
Ramos ended his contract with Madrid at the end of the season. He went to the Alfredo di Stefano Stadium on Saturday to witness a 2-1 victory over Barcelona in the stands.
According to the agreement made by the Spanish League and the health authorities, Ramos will have to be isolated in his residence.
Madrid will also blame Lucas Vázquez on Wednesday for the casualties, who suffered a knee injury in the game against Barcelona and Eden Hazard has not recovered after a series of illnesses.
The 13-time European champion has won six consecutive victories in all competitions and has remained unbeaten in the last 13 games.
