Real Madrid have published that Alvaro Odriozola has tested positive for Covid-19 today, meaning that he won’t be training with the squad until he tests negative.

Right now, Los Blancos don’t have an available right-back in the squad, given that Dani Carvajal is also apart from the group as he completes an individual pre-season stage to improve his ability to stay healthy. All things considered, Lucas Vazquez will likely be needed to play in the right side of the defensive line when Madrid take on Milan next weekend.

This is Real Madrid’s third positive for Covid-19 at the moment, with Karim Benzema and David Alaba also infected and recovering. Most players in the squad should get vaccinated soon as the process is speeding up in Spain, so hopefully the coaching staff won’t have to worry about Covid a lot this season.
