While some talked about the goals of Lewandowski, of those of Suarez Y João and some of the pleasant memory of Anfield, the bomb jumped in Munich, although every time it surprises less: Gnabry, positive for COVID-19. He Bayern He announced late in the afternoon the contagion of his player after the test that was done in the morning … just before training. That is, it could have infected another partner. Thus, The squad will undergo a new test round this morning and, obviously, only the negative ones will be able to attend the Allianz. There are more factors …
At first, Everything indicates that the meeting will take place in compliance with the UEFA protocol on the coronavirus (follow the game live on As.com). The body foresees that it can be played even if a team only has 13 players (including a goalkeeper). In that sense, it seems unlikely that Bayern will not be able to appear. However, another actor has a lot to say: the Bavarian government.
Regional authorities could order a quarantine for the entire team for having been in contact with the positive case and, therefore, cancel the match. The numbers of infected are increasing in Germany and more restrictive measures are being taken in all sectors, with which it is not ruled out that the regional government applies a strong hand.
What is certain is that Gnabry, one of Bayern's fittest footballers, will have to watch the game from his home, where he is already in quarantine (he is asymptomatic). Douglas Costa points to eleven, already entering the strictly sports of what should be a great night of Champions. Why Atleti visits the home of the European champion. The same thing he did in March how he beat Liverpool at home, in the step before the crash before him Leipzig. Tonight, as in Anfield, the rojiblanco team arrives little less than a guest. El Cholo will know how to take advantage of it.
Feat. In memory also the visit of 2016. No one has subjected the team of Simeone how that Bayern of Guardiola. But Atlético suffered and, based on courage and heart, took that semifinal forward. Oblak continues and the formula works now. Today with João Félix and Suárez, who will not have forgotten the humiliation of 8-2.
And in front, a Lucas who wants to be important in Bayern red. And an intimidating attack with Lewandowski and Müller launched. But the Cholo will not give a throw-in to the champion. Nobody likes these crashes anymore, although now it is still the most difficult.
