Second friendly ACB suspended due to coronavirus

The Joventut - Casademont Zaragoza, which was to be played this Saturday in Torrefarrera (Lleida), will not be played when a positive is detected in La Penya.


The friendly between Joventut and Casademont Zaragoza, which was to be played this Saturday in Torrefarrera (Lleida), has been suspended due to a positive coronavirus in the Penya expedition. The Catalan team, through a statement, has reported that the player is asymptomatic and is isolated. The decision to cancel has been made by both teams. This was to be the start of the preseason for both teams.

“Due to the detection of an asymptomatic case in one of the members of the first team, who is already properly isolated, and following the protocols established by the health authorities and prioritizing safety to guarantee the common welfare of all, it has been decided mutual agreement to suspend the match between Joventut and Casademont Zaragoza that was to be played this Saturday in Torrefarrera (Lleida) ”, says the statement from the Badalona team, which four days ago announced two more positives.

It is the second summer game to be suspended due to COVID-19. The first was the Costa del Sol Tournament, where Unicaja de Málaga and Real Madrid were going to face each other in their tenth edition on August 29.

This situation, that of the cancellation of duels, will be the general trend in the coming months due to the pandemic, which is again taking on dramatic tints in Spain and which has already affected, with today's game, 13 ACB players. To avoid this as much as possible, the clubs are announcing training matches behind closed doors: Movistar Estudiantes, Herbalife Gran Canaria, Montakit Fuenlabrada, Iberostar Tenerife…
