“Real Madrid C. F. confirm our players Isco and David Alaba have tested positive for COVID-19,” the club said in a statement.
The pair join six other players recovering from the virus — Marco Asensio, Gareth Bale, Andriy Lunin, Rodrygo, Luka Modric and Marcelo — and assistant coach Davide Ancelotti, son of head coach Carlo Ancelotti.
Real play Athletic Bilbao on Wednesday.
Under Liga protocols a club must have at least 13 players, with at least five of them first-teamers and one a goalkeeper, available to play a match.
Vaccinated players can return as soon as they test negative.
