With the players set to spend the next few days in self-isolation, doubts have surfaced over the club’s Champions League clash with Manchester City next week.
Real Madrid has sent its entire squad and playing staff into a 15-day quarantine after one of the club’s basketball players tested positive for coronavirus.

Madrid were set to take on Eibar behind closed doors on Friday after the Spanish football association barred the fans from going to the stadium to prevent the spread of the virus.
The Spanish giants are the 2nd notable club in Europe whose players have been told to isolate themselves after Olympiakos. Earlier in the week, the Greek outfit had ordered its players to stay at home following news that the club’s owner had contracted the virus.
