[VIDEO] UCL: Atletico Madrid will play without two positive COVID-19 players

Atletico Madrid will play against RB Leipzig in Champions League quarterfinals without two of its players, Angel Correa and Sime Vrsjalko.

This comes after they were both tested positive COVID-19, forcing the club to postpone the training session in the morning.

They were supposed to travel and stay at Lisbon, as the capital city of Portugal will be hosting quarterfinals, semifinals and final.

But their plans were put on hold until the rest of their squad tested negative for COVID-19.

Correa and Vrsjalko have been isolating at home but were both asymptomatic.

Atletico face German side RB Leipzig on Thursday in the quarter-finals.

A victory could see them facing Paris St Germain or Atalanta in the semi-final.
