Dani Carvajal to miss Super Cup final after positive Covid-19 test

Real Madrid have confirmed that right-back Dani Carvajal has tested positive for Covid-19.

Carvajal played 90 minutes of Real’s 3-2 victory over Barcelona in the Super Cup semi-final on Wednesday but will now play no part in the final as rules in Saudi Arabia, where the tournament is held, state that he must isolate for seven days.

Real have confirmed the result, but AS state that they are currently awaiting the results of a second PCR test to establish whether this is a genuine positive or a false one.

As of yet, nobody else in the Real squad has tested positive for the virus in Saudi Arabia.

Should this bad news be confirmed, Carlo Ancelotti will have to figure out what to do at right-back. He will likely opt to go for the versatile Lucas Vazquez, who replaced Carvajal in injury time against Barcelona.
