The two positives at Zenit will not prevent the duel against Barça

Hollins and Pushkov will not be in the game against Barcelona. The meeting, which had already been postponed, is not in danger due to its positives.


Xavi Pascual's Zenit reported today two positives for COVID-19 among his players, Austin Hollins and Antón Pushkov, but confirmed that the Euroleague match against Barcelona will be played.

"The game will be played rain or shine," the spokesman for the Russian club told EFE.

Zenit regretted on its website that, despite all the prevention measures, the team has not been able to "avoid losses" in its ranks.

Both Hollins and Pushkov have been confined, as has the team's masseur Andrei Kozlov, who also tested positive. "They are under medical observation and are doing well," said the source.

The match was already moved from Thursday to Friday because the Catalan team coach, the Lithuanian Sarunas Jasikevicius, contracted the coronavirus, which is why he will not travel to Saint Petersburg.

Both teams started the Euroleague with victory. Barcelona at home to CSKA Moscow and Zenit, in the Anadolu Efes pavilion.

Pascual has been directing the Russian team since the beginning of the year, in which he replaced the Spanish coach Joan Plaza.
