Zidane has tested negative for antigens and is now awaiting the results of a PCR test, however the league’s protocol may mean that he may need to sit out the game regardless.
La Liga outlines that even those who have a negative test must wait a further three days to then undergo a new test and to once again return a negative result.
Real Madrid news now sees Zidane sit out the club’s training sessions and any event with others to risk any potential spread of the virus.
