On Friday, Bundesliga club RB Leipzig only reported six new corona cases. Including the three sick people from the beginning of the week, there are nine. On Sunday (5.30 p.m.) the first infected person is about to make a comeback.
Goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi (31) did a quick test on Saturday morning. The result, however, was still unclear. A PCR test should finally provide certainty. If the test result is there by tomorrow morning and is negative, Gulacsi is in the Leverkusen squad.
Gulacsi tested positive on Monday and did not fly to the Champions League game in Bruges (5-0). Just like trainer Jesse Marsch (48).
The American says: “In the last few days we were quarantine buddies and we talked a lot on the phone. Peter had no symptoms and is important to the group. However, he has no training for a week. That’s why the tendency is to start with Josep Martinez. “
The Spaniard made his Champions League debut in Bruges. And did an excellent job.
There will be no return from Marsch to the sidelines on Sunday. Due to Corona, he had muscle pain and a fever at the beginning of the week. A quick test on Saturday was positive.
Marsch: “The fact that there are no spectators in the stadium may make communication with my assistant coaches a little easier for me.”
By the way: All players who tested positive (Gulacsi, Orban, Simakan, Poulsen, Novoa) are symptom-free and are doing well. With Haidara, Szoboszlai (both ankle problems) and Adams, who was last suspended in Bruges, three players return to the squad.
March over Leverkusen: “A young and talented team. We have to keep an eye on their shift players. And enter the game with the same passion and aggressiveness as in Bruges. “
