Atletico Madrid are expected to be once again without striker Luis Suarez when they will face Bayern Munich in a vital Champions League match.
Luis Suarez tested positive again for coronavirus and consequently left out of Atletico Madrid’s squad for Tuesday’s Champions League clash with Bayern Munich.
While away with his country, the Uruguay international contracted COVID-19 and has missed Atletico’s last three matches, including a reunion with former club Barcelona.
“This virus is strange. It is possible that tomorrow he tests negative and is fit. He has been training and wants to help the team,” Simeone said at his pre-match news conference.
“We will have to wait and see what happens and then inform you. I spoke to him yesterday and he felt good, wanting to be with the rest of the team.
“The most important thing is he is well. If he doesn’t play tomorrow he will play on Saturday.”
