Aston Villa look for new opponent after Sevilla friendly called off

After a friendly with Sevilla was canceled due to coronavirus, Aston Villa is looking for a replacement opponent on Saturday.

At 16:00 EAT, the LaLiga side was set to meet the Midlands club at Villa Park.

"The Spanish side will now not travel to England due to a Covid outbreak among the squad," said Villa.

"The club are still in discussions regarding a new opponent and will update supporters as soon as possible."

Villa were scheduled to play Sevilla in their final pre-season game before starting their Premier League campaign at Watford on 14 August.
