Cruz Azul will face the Arcahaie of Haiti on Tuesday night, a squad that reported cases of coronavirus hours before the duel for the Champions League
The Arcahaie FC of Haiti, rival of Blue Cross on the Concacaf Champions League, reported two positive cases for Covid-19, in the pregame test round to be held this Tuesday in the Dominican Republic.
“For the matches on April 6, there are two new positive cases within the Arcahaie FC delegation. Both people are isolating themselves and following all local and Concacaf public health protocols. Concacaf is working so that people and their club receive the necessary support ”, reported the Concacaf, by means of a statement.
Blue Cross traveled with some substitute players for the commitment of the Concacaf Champions League, and all its cement elements were negative in the PCR test round that was carried out prior to the game against the Haitian team.
According to Concacaf, the two players who tested positive for Covid-19 were separated from the squad, so the rest of the team is in a position to play against The Celestial Machine by Juan Reynoso.
Blue Cross returns to the tournament, after being eliminated in the quarterfinal stage in the last edition, by Carlos Vela’s LAFC.
PCR testing prior to each engagement is a routine adopted by the Concacaf from previous tournaments, such as the Men’s Pre-Olympic, to ensure the health of all players and team personnel.
In the Pre-Olympic, Mexico did not have any contagion and was champion of the tournament, which was held in Guadalajara, Jalisco. Now, Blue Cross, along with the other Mexican teams participating in the tournament, must be subjected to the same routine during the Concacaf Champions League.
