02 people tested positive for the coronavirus in Atletico Madrid

Atletico Madrid said two people tested positive for the coronavirus ahead of Thursday's Champions League quarter-final against RB Leipzig in Lisbon.

The Spanish club said the anonymous individuals were isolating themselves in their homes.

The positive cases were discovered after first-team players and club staff traveling to Lisbon were tested in Madrid on Saturday.

They will now be retested with close contacts of positive cases.

"This is motivating changes in training schedules, in the structure and development of travel and accommodation in the Portuguese capital," Atletico said in a statement.

“The club will coordinate the new schedules with UEFA and as soon as there is a new plan it will be made public. He also calls for maximum respect for the identity of the two positive cases. "

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Champions League ends with a 'last eight' tournament in Lisbon, with one-leg matches held behind closed doors.
