Barcelona got a boost Tuesday when Ronald Koeman’s team got the go-ahead for COVID-19 after two staff members tested positive.
A morning training session was called off as the players underwent tests to determine if the virus could have spread among the group.
But no positive aspects were detected and that meant that Koeman’s men could train at night, before playing Wednesday’s game against Athletic Bilbao.
A club statement read: “In accordance with LaLiga protocol, the FC Barcelona first team underwent PCR testing on Tuesday morning. All tests were negative. “
The Camp Nou giants said on Monday that two members of the first team squad had tested positive for coronavirus, and sports and health authorities were informed of those results.
Koeman’s team is fifth in LaLiga ahead of their trip to the Basque Country to face Athletic, ninth.
Barcelona, who are 10 points behind the top of LaLiga, have won the previous two games in their travels after going four league games away from home without winning.
