on

There will be no Champions League games on Tuesday with Manchester City v Real Madrid and Juventus v Lyon postponed.

Manchester City’s clash with Real Madrid and Juventus’ game against Lyon – both in the last 16 of the Champions League – have been postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Premier League champions City made the decision in conjunction with UEFA after Madrid established a self-imposed quarantine in the wake of a positive coronavirus test by one of their basketball players on Thursday.

Juve’s game was pushed back after centre-back Daniele Rugani was found to have contracted COVID-19, with the club consequently following isolation procedures.

A City statement read: “Manchester City’s Champions League fixture at home to Real Madrid has been postponed.

“The decision to postpone Tuesday’s game was made in conjunction with UEFA and follows confirmation that players from Real Madrid will self-isolate for 15 days, after it emerged that a player from the club’s basketball team tested positive for COVID-19.

“Further information regarding the rescheduled date and related ticketing information will follow in due course.”

The proliferation of COVID-19 in Spain has led to the next two LaLiga matchdays being suspended, having previously been due to be played behind closed doors. In Italy, all domestic sport has been prohibited until April 3.

According to the World Health Organization, there have been 2,140 confirmed cases of coronavirus in Spain and 12,462 in Italy.

Coronavirus: Cannavaro doubts European football will resume before season’s end

Published

on

Fabio Cannavaro – now in charge of CSL powerhouse Guangzhou Evergrande – is not confident that football will resume by May.

Fabio Cannavaro believes it will be difficult for European football to return before the season ends amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Sport has been brought to a standstill due to COVID-19, with Serie A, LaLiga, Bundesliga, Ligue 1 and the Premier League all on hiatus.

The Champions League and Europa League finals have also been postponed, with Euro 2020 pushed back to next year following more than 18,800 deaths worldwide – over 9,800 of the casualties from Italy and Spain.

Former Italy, Juventus and Real Madrid defender Cannavaro – now in charge of Chinese Super League powerhouse Guangzhou Evergrande – is not confident that football will resume by May.

 

“In less than a month it is not known what is going to happen in the world,” the 43-year-old told COPE.

“I think it will take a long time for this to end in Italy and Spain.

“It will be difficult for European football to return before the season ends.”

Cannavaro has been based in China since joining Evergrande in 2014 before returning in 2017, while he was briefly in charge of the national team last year.

China has enforced strict measures to combat the spread of coronavirus, which originated in the country and has claimed more than 3,270 lives.

 

“The virus in Guangzhou is under control and life is beginning to go back to normal,” Cannavaro added. “There are no more restrictions, only 14 days at home.

“In two days, I finish my quarantine. All of us who come back have to do it.

“Staying at home is essential because we do not give the virus the opportunity to infect more people.

“We have to learn from China, they have more experience in this situation.”
