Argentine club Defensa y Justicia, which this afternoon contests the semi-final of the Copa Sudamericana against Coquimbo Unido, said that the players who had been confirmed as covid positivi, finally tested negative in the PCR exams to which they were subjected.
The institution assured its Twitter account that the players left Chile and that they will join the Trans-Andina delegation in Asunción, where tonight the Pirate painting will be local by arrangement of the Conmebol.
Washington Camacho’s positive, Francisco Pizzini and Rafael Delgado, was discovered upon club arrival in Santiago, where the semi-final would be played last week, after Conmebol had decided to remove Coquimbo from the port city.
As a result of the fact, the health authority forced the delegation to quarantine, which led to the suspension of the fact. By diplomatic efforts, on Friday the Trans-Andean club was able to leave Chile and the players stayed in the country complying with a quarantine they already abandoned after giving negative on the last Review.
The match between Coquimbo Unido and Defensa y Justicia will be played from 19.15 hours at the Manuel Ferreira Stadium in the Paraguayan capital.
