After suffering a predictable loss at the UEFA Champions League final, French club Paris Saint-Germain received a further blow as they officially confirmed that three of their prolific players have been tested positive for the widespread Coronavirus.

Although the French giants failed to mention the names of the players, a report from French outlet L’Equipe claims that Neymar is in the list of the positive cases.

The Ligue 1 giants have not picked up the ball ever since their defeat to Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich in the Champions League final at Lisbon, Portugal. They will be opening their French League campaign on September 10.

After their defeat to the German club, most of the PSG star took some days off in Ibiza. L’Equipe further reported the names of the three players; Neymar, Angel Di Maria, and Leandro Paredes, who all went to Ibiza for their brief holidays.

The club wrote on their official website: “Three Paris Saint-Germain players have confirmed positive Sars CoV2 tests and are subject to the appropriate health protocol.

“All of the players and coaching staff will continue to undergo tests in the coming days.”

The first match for the Ligue 1 campaign was postponed in July following the outbreak of Coronavirus sudden cases at Marseille, who confirmed three positive cases among its first eleven players and club’s staff.

Paris Saint-Germain and Marseille are not the only French club suffering the outbreak blow, as several others have also suffered the blow with Lyon, Rennes and Montpellier included in that list.

This resulted in the Parisians canceling their senior team training, with many of the first-team squad still out on international duty.

Ligue 1 received high critics after becoming the only top European league to prematurely end its 2019/20 campaign rather than restart following the Coronavirus pandemic during spring. With its campaign ending, the club with the highest position on the league table was announced champions; Paris Saint-Germain won the 2019/20 campaign with Marseille coming second while Stade Rennes and Lille ending with the third and fourth position respectively.

After two games played in their 2020/21 campaign, OGC Nice are currently sitting top of the table having emerged victorious in their opening matches against RC Lens and Strasbourg. Bordeaux, AS Monaco, Rennes, Lille, and Nantes all two points behind Nice and several online bookies are creating better odds for the games ahead in the French league.

Marseille started their season opener with a 3-2 victory against Brest on Sunday after seeing their previous opening match with Saint-Etienne postponed on August 18.

Paris Saint-Germain was originally confirmed to start their 2020/21 campaign on September 10, but following these new altercations with the Coronavirus, the club might be asked to postpone their opener once again due to this.

Although nothing of sort have been officially confirmed, if it happened to be, PSG will be having a lot on their plate as the Thomas Tuchel’s team will be tasked with the job of catching up with the other clubs in the team plus potential players that might be missing out on their first opener.
