Danilo became the fifth Paris Saint-Germain player to test positive for Covid-19 and will be ruled out of a French Cup match with Vance, the club said. The 30-year-old Portuguese international joins midfielder Lionel Messi and other team-mates in self-isolation as the Omicron version shows little signs of loosening his grip. Messi, Juan Bernat, Sergio Rico and youngster Nathan Bitumzala were all known to have tested positive on Sunday. His absence prompted PSG coach Mauricio Pochettino to call out the South American players, who only resumed training on Sunday for a clash with fourth division Vans.

Marquinhos and Messi’s team-mates Angel Di Maria and Mauro Icardi of Argentina are among those who could be run out.

Home team Vans is calculating the cost of the French government’s newly introduced crowd restrictions on Monday, with 5,000 spectators allowed only for outdoor events.


Vance was expecting sales of 9,600 and is set to miss out on revenue of 250,000 euros ($282,000), according to their president Maxime Re.

“We are losing what is fortunate for us,” he said last week.
