Could this be a setback for Real Madrid as the club’s forward, Mariano Diaz tests positive of COVID-19 diseases as they set to face Manchester city. 

As CHAMPIONS LEAGUE set to resume again Real Madrid player Mariano Diaz as becoming victim of the deadly virus.

UEFA do not consider Manchester City’s Champions League tie with Real Madrid to be in jeopardy, despite one of the LaLiga club’s players testing positive for COVID-19, the UK Mirror reports.

Diaz, who has made only seven substitute appearances this season, is understood to have tested positive on his return from holiday, following Real’s title triumph.

Madrid striker, Mariano Diaz, is unavailable for the second leg of the last-16 tie at the Etihad Stadium next week Friday, after beginning a two-week period of quarantine.

The 26-year-old is believed not to have been in physical contact with other squad members in the past week, although tests are due to be carried out in the coming days.

City, who hold a 2-1 lead from the first leg of the tie, don’t have major concerns over the development.

But if more Real players test positive in their next round of testing, that could ultimately throw the tie into serious doubt.
