Bundesliga frontrunners RB Leipzig said on Tuesday Malian midfielder Amadou Haidara tested positive for coronavirus after a previous test returned an ambiguous result, hours before their Ligue des champions with Istanbul Basaksehir

Leipzig said the rest of their squad had all tested negative for Covid-19 before hosting the Turkish squad in their opening group stage game which will start at 1900 GMT

The 22-year-old, who scored his first international goal in the 3-0 friendly win over Ghana in September, has been isolated from the Leipzig squad since last Thursday as a preventive measure

He was absent from Saturday’s 2-0 win in Augsburg, which allowed Leipzig to stay ahead of the German top flight after four games

« We are in constant contact with Amadou Haidara, he is doing well under the circumstances and has no symptoms, » said Leipzig sporting director Markus Kroesche

« He is getting all the support he needs from us. We are expecting him soon and wish him a speedy recovery »

Haidara started Leipzig’s first three league games before being sidelined by the virus and scored in the 3-1 win over Mainz on the first day of the season
