Today’s preseason friendly between Barcelona and Stuttgart is in jeopardy after two Stuttgart players tested positive for Covid-19 this morning, according to reports in Germany.

The game is scheduled to start at 7pm CET but no decision has been made as of this writing. Barcelona are also scheduled to face RB Salzburg on Wednesday. We’ll bring you more updates as we have them.

UPDATE: The game is ON after consultation between the two clubs and health authorities and will start at its original time. Stuttgart confirmed the two positive tests in their camp but added that the rest of the squad tested negative and the two players are in isolation.

UPDATE: The game will kick off an hour later than previously scheduled because the Barça bus was delayed due to heavy traffic on their way to the stadium.
