The first team and all the coaching staff and assistants of the Real Betis -medics, physiotherapists, utilleros, assistants …- will undergo new PCR tests this Tuesday hours on the eve of leaving for Navarra for the dispute of the match of the 2nd round of the Cup of the King against him Mutilvera (Wednesday, January 6 at 5:00 p.m.), after two new Covid 19 positives were detected this Monday among people closely linked to the first team, the coaching staff and assistants.
In the Covid test last Thursday the players tested positive Joaquín, Guardado and Martín Montoya -a week before it was Alex Moreno-, as well as some member of the medical staff, so on Friday the entire team and the coaching staff carried out PCRs again without detecting new positives among the players and coaching staff, so the existence of an outbreak was finally ruled out and the derby could be played against him Seville FC on Saturday.
At Betis Antigen tests are carried out practically every day, both the players and the staff who go to the sports complex, and every time someone appears in the ‘bubble’ with positive values -as happened this Monday- PCRs are carried out on all others to be able to isolate those who are infected and prevent the virus from spreading, as indicated by the strict protocol activated by The league, which has allowed that to date no First Division match has had to be postponed despite the existence of positives in almost all teams.
In the Real Betis are currently in quarantine for having recently tested positive for Covid Joaquín, Guardado, Martín Montoya and Álex Moreno. They have already tested positive before Joel Robles, Juanmi, Fekir, William Carvalho, Loren and Mandi, so there are ten footballers who have already passed it.
This Tuesday the first team of Real Betis he had planned to train at 10.30 am in the sports city and then there was a press conference with Manuel Pellegrini at 12.30 p.m., but as happened last Friday, surely everything will be delayed in the afternoon – the club has not yet reported on this – until the results of the new PCRs are known, which will all be done in the morning after being detected this Monday two new positives among the auxiliary staff.
