Moise Kean tests positive for COVID, set to miss Barcelona clash

Paris Saint Germain will be without Moise Kean when they play Barcelona in the second leg of their Champions League round of 16 clash after he tested positive for coronavirus. 

The striker has been impressive for the Paris-based club and was on the scoresheet in the first leg played two weeks ago. 

A statement from the club confirmed the striker's test results returned positive, forcing him to go into self-isolation. 

"Moise Kean tested positive in the Sars-Cov2 PCR test this morning. He stayed in Paris and will not be available for the match in Bordeaux.

"He will therefore enter a period of isolation and is subject to the appropriate health protocols."

Kean will also miss PSG's two domestic matches, starting with Wednesday night's clash away to Bordeaux. 

He will also miss the weekend's French Cup last-32 meeting with Brest.

Kean has surpassed expectations at the club, scoring 17 goals in his first 31 matches for the club.
