The Spanish soccer top club FC Barcelona has to do without Óscar Mingueza and Martin Braithwaite in the league game against RCD Mallorca on Sunday (9 p.m.).
The club announced this on Friday.
Both players were tested positively for Covid-19.
Defense player Mingueza and striker Braithwaite hardly play a role under coach Xavi this season, the failures are therefore likely to be compensable.
However, the Catalan press fears a wave of infection after the team including Braithwaite had together at the Barbecue in the training center on Thursday.
The team of the German national goalkeeper Marc-André Ter Stegen is in second place five games before the end and has the Champions League qualification in his own hands.
Competitor Real Madrid (78) can make his 35th championship title early this weekend.
