31-year-old Moroccan international Adel Taarabt has been tested positive for the corona virus.
This means that the number of Atlas Lions that became infected after the double confrontation with the Central African Republic is increasing again.
Previously, the players Youssef El Arabi, Yassine Bounou, Romain Saïss and Nayef Aguerd were already tested positive.
On Tuesday, Taarabt received his positive test result, reports the Portuguese newspaper Record. In addition to players Darwin Núñez and Julian Weigl, Taarabt is the third player in Benfica’s roster to be infected.
The Moroccan international was forced to pass up last Thursday’s Europa League match between Benfica and Glasgow Rangers due to the positive test.
