PSG’s Verratti to miss Bayern clash after testing positive for Covid-19

Paris – Italy midfielder Marco Verratti is set to miss Paris St Germain’s Champions League quarter-final first leg at Bayern Munich after the French champions said he tested positive for Covid-19 yesterday.

“He will isolate and is being submitted to the appropriate health protocol,” PSG wrote on Twitter.

In France, a positive test for the novel coronavirus or Covid-19 symptoms triggers a mandatory 10-day quarantine.

PSG face Bayern on Tuesday, four days after taking on Lille in a top-of-the-table Ligue 1 clash, for which Verratti had already been ruled out after sustaining a thigh injury while on recent international duty. ― Reuters
