Think the fittest team has the best chance. Talking of which, Atlético Madrid’s plans are affected after two players tested positive.

Home or work, well mostly home these days.

This has the potential to affect the whole tournament, these individuals (not players as far as is stated so far), must have had contact with others in their squad, so it's quite likely others may have contracted it by the time their next set of tests occur (hopefuly before they play anyone). Luckily they didn't have to play last week, so can't have passed it on to another club's players, but where do we go with this ? A negative test is not proof you don't have it, so potentially players could play a game and pass it on without every knowing.

Potentially a new can of worms.

Two in quarantine now from a test conducted on the 8th. Presumably, the entire party will be tested tomorrow, but that means their results won’t be known until Tuesday, which means chaos could ensue if more positive results are returned and they cannot fulfill Thursday’s fixture. I imagine they cannot even depart now until they know. A jolly big can!

So these two players cannot play in the rest of the competition? Can they be replaced? If there are any more positive tests then the same applies to them? So they are forced to play a weakened team or forfeit the match? UEFA would definitely consider dropping a team before cancelling the tournament.
