The 24-year-old presented the same case as Luis Suarez, star signing of Athletic this campaign, who also tested positive for covid-19 and who he will not be present at the game either in front of his former team, with which he won everything worldwide.

For his part, the Mexican Hector Herrera, who caused sick leave due to injury to the Mexican teamwill not have minutes either, leaving the Cholo Simeone struggling to put together a competitive midfield to face Barcelona.
