COVID is primed with Atleti

João Félix joins Carrasco and Hermoso, on leave after contracting the coronavirus. Correa, Vrsaljko, Costa, Giménez, Suárez, Torreira, El Cholo ... have passed it recently.


Atlético announced that João Félix has tested positive for coronavirus. The Portuguese is isolated at home following LaLiga protocols and joins the casualties of Carrasco and Hermoso, who already missed the game against Cádiz for having contracted the disease.

Simeone is thus left without three fundamental players, plus Trippier sanctioned, in a trend that has already become common for the Argentine coach, where he himself also suffered COVID-19. The first to be infected was Lodi, in the month of May. Since the last game of last season, in the Champions League against Leipzig, where Correa and Vrsaljko were withdrawn for testing positive for coronavirus, the cases at Atlético have been repeated.

Already at the start of the preseason Diego Costa and Santiago Arias arrived infected and could not start at the pace of their teammates. Giménez could not participate in the league start after chaining a positive for coronavirus with a muscle injury. His compatriots Luis Suárez and Torreira returned infected by the virus of the expedition with the Uruguayan team just before taking on Barcelona. Grbic for his part tested positive after having made his Cup debut against Cardassar.

Now three starting footballers join, who must remain isolated while waiting to overcome the disease. Atlético is calm before the storm. Without a match until Monday, when he receives Celta at the Wanda Metropolitano, from that date the slopes begin. On Saturday February 13, Granada awaits and from there they will play two games a week. The duel against Levante will be recovered on the 16th, the Granota team is visited on the 20th and the Champions League returns on the 23rd with Chelsea visiting the rojiblanco fiefdom. February will end by going to play at Villarreal.
