León confirm case of covid-19 ahead of Chivas clash
The Liga MX has confirmed one player from Club León has tested positive for covid-19 and will miss the game against Chivas at the Akron stadium.
Club León announced that before facing Chivas at the Akron stadium all their players and staff members were tested for coronavirus with only one result coming back positive. According to multiple sources, David Ramírez, former Chivas youth player, was that one, and he will miss the first leg of the semi-final on Wednesday night.
“Following the health protocols established by the Liga MX prior to the first leg of the semi-final against Chivas in Guadalajara, all the players and staff members from León were tested for coronavirus. Unfortunately one result came out positive and that player has been isolated and he will miss both legs to prevent the spread of coronavirus,” read a statement by León.
Ramírez has been an important player for León during this 2020 Guardianes tournament, because in 15 appearances he has scored two goals and provided two assists. It is expected that the head coach of León, Ignacio Ambríz, will include Joel Campbell in the starting XI to replace Ramírez against Chivas.
