Samuel Umtiti follows Jean-Clair Todibo in testing positive for COVID-19

Barcelona’s French central defender Samuel Umtiti has tested positive for COVID-19 and is currently self-isolating at home, the Catalan club have confirmed.

The 26-year-old ex-Lyon man is understood to be asymptomatic and received the diagnosis after PCR tests were carried out on Thursday.

Umtiti had not travelled with Catalan club to Portugal for the Champions’ League after sustaining a knee injury and therefore tonight’s clash between Barça and Bayern Munich is not under threat.
