Atletico Madrid forward, Joao Felix tests positive for COVID-19
The club said the 21-year-old player is in isolation at home and is following the recommendations of local
health authorities as well as the Spanish league’s COVID-19 protocol.

on the sidelines.
Carrasco and Hermoso missed Atletico’s 4-2 win at Cadiz on Sunday, but club record-signing Felix started
and played 60 minutes yet will now be unavailable for Monday’s clash at home to Celta Vigo.
Felix, who moved to Atletico from Benfica for a club-record £113m in the summer of 2019, has made 25
appearances for Diego Simeone’s side in all competitions this season, scoring nine goals.
