Sergio Arribas Dropped From Squad Due To Possible Positive Coronavirus Test

Unfortunately, Real Madrid has hit another case of coronavirus. Arribas, one of Castilla’s recallers who submitted to the team yesterday, has been dropped pending a PCR test result. The news was reported by Arancha Rodriguez of Capena COPE.

Arribas was not expected to feature against Athletic Bilbao, but it is also true that he could have had the chance to come off the bench during the second half now that Real Madrid did not have a pure right winger.

The young attacker will now await the result of the PCR test, and if it turns out to be positive, he will need to be isolated over the next few days. He must recover and test negative in time for Real Madrid’s upcoming match against Alcoyano in Copa del Rey, a match in which he could have a few minutes and even start up if Ancelotti decides to rest his key players.
