Barcelona striker Luis Suarez will certainly not be able to participate in the super big match duel against his former club Barcelona this weekend. The Uruguayan attacker is still positive for the Coronavirus so he still has to undergo self-quarantine.
For information, Luis Suarez is known to have been infected with the Coronavirus since last Tuesday (17/11). The Uruguay Football Federation itself announced this, where there were two other players who also suffered the same fate.
This condition made the former Liverpool player miss the match against Brazil last Wednesday (18/11).
As reported by Marca, Suarez underwent his second test on Thursday morning WIB (19/11), but unfortunately the results show that the 33-year-old player is still infected with the Covid-19 Virus.
With the results of the second test, it is very unlikely that Luis Suarez will be able to play against Barcelona this weekend.
Yes, as it is known that Atletico Madrid will indeed host Barcelona in the Spanish La Liga continued this weekend.
The duel is clearly eagerly awaited by Suarez, given he spent six years with the Catalan giants before moving to Atletico last summer.
Suarez is clearly disappointed with the results of his second test given that El Pistolero is eager to meet Barcelona after he felt he was treated unfairly before being kicked out of Camp Nou.
The person concerned even said that he would not celebrate if he scored a goal against Barcelona at the Wanda Metropolitano later.
Apart from Suarez’s expected absence, Atletico Madrid have received good news with the recovery of their other striker, Diego Costa.
Costa has attended a training session with the team on Wednesday (11/18/2020) and his condition will continue to be monitored ahead of the arrival of the weekend.
In addition, coach Diego Simeone has also been able to play two other players who have recovered from injury, including Luciano Vitolo and Stefan Savic.
Unfortunately, Suarez was not only absent from the match against Barcelona, but also in the match against Lokomotiv Moscow in the continued round of the European Champions League Group stage next week.
