Monaco’s most dangerous striker Wissam Ben Yedder tested positive for coronavirus on November 12, just a day after France’s fiasco of a fixture against Finland which saw Les Bleus fall 2-0. After being informed of his positive COVID-19 report, Ben Yedder did not attend training with the national squad and immediately began his isolation period.
The Frenchman took to Twitter to share a message with his fans:
With Ben Yedder in isolation, Monaco will miss the presence of their star striker and captain as they face off against the oil money rich Ligue 1 leaders, Paris Saint-Germain on November 20 under the floodlights of Stade Louis II. Unfortunately, spectators will not be allowed to spectate from the stadium’s stands, in order to comply with the tightened coronavirus restrictions since confinement part 2 began.
The red and whites seem to be on top form as they will be welcoming the Parisians on the back of two consecutive victories. Here’s to hoping that Monaco will make it a triple despite the absence of their beloved No.9.
