Juventus have announced that Matthijs De Ligt is self-isolating after testing positive for Covid-19.
De Ligt becomes the third Juve player to test positive in a matter of days, following Juan Cuadrado and Alex Sandro earlier this week.
He will therefore miss this weekend’s Serie A clash with Sassuolo, and is also doubtful for the mid-week Coppa Italia meeting with Genoa and perhaps also next weekend’s trip to face Inter.
“Juventus Football Club announces that, during the checks provided for by the protocol in force, Matthijs De Ligt has emerged positive with Covid 19,” read a statement released via the club’s official website on Friday.
“The player has already been placed in solitary confinement.”
