ATHENS – The blood tests of all the members of the Olympiacos club’s football department – including the team, trainers and staff – have come back negative, Olympiacos FC announced on Wednesday. The tests were ordered after the club’s owner Vangelis Marinakis announced that he had been infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
Olympiacos will face Wolves FC on Thursday for the Europa League at the Karaiskakis stadium. The match will take place without spectators, in line with the Greek government’s enforced temporary suspension of spectators at all sporting events to limit the spread of coronavirus (Covid-19) in Greece.
Wolves can confirm that a formal request submitted to UEFA proposing the postponement of Thursday’s Europa League match at Olympiacos has been rejected by the governing body.
