This isn’t the first time Castilla have had a positive case in the squad. They postponed their clash with Rayo Majahonda on October 30th when three players tested positive, playing it on November 15th and losing 1-0.

Madrid are keen to deal with the positive case with a strict quarantine to prevent the spread of cases at Valdebebas, the training facility Castilla share with the first team.
