Barcelona’s clash with Dynamo Kiev faces cancellation as Ukrainian side gets hit by Covid-19.
Barcelona’s Champions League clash with Dynamo Kiev on Wednesday night is at serious threat of being called off due to a breakout of coronavirus in the Ukrainian team’s squad.
Only 13 first-team players travelled to Spain on Monday, the minimum number established by UEFA’s health protocols.
An additional six from the youth team have made the journey, but if only one more player from List A tests positive than the match will be postponed.
Six players in total from the Ukrainian club have been infected, with more testing set to take place on Tuesday morning.
The six players last trained with the Dynamo squad on Sunday, according to Mundo Deportivo.
Though the players who have travelled tested negative, they could still manifest the disease at a later stage, increasing the risk that they could infect Barcelona players.
If the game has to be rescheduled, then a new date will have to be found before the cut-off point of January 28, which may prove difficult due to the heavily congested calendar.
