Mohamed Salah tests negative for Coronavirus ahead of Atalanta clash

Nov, 25th 2020 – Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah is back in training and could face Atalanta in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

The 28-year-old missed Sunday’s 3-0 win over Leicester after testing positive for coronavirus while on international duty with Egypt. However, he has since tested negative and took part in training on Monday.

Liverpool have a 100% record in this season’s Champions League and will reach the last 16 if they beat the Serie A side at Anfield.

The Reds boss Jurgen Klopp said, “Atalanta are a threat even without a point to prove. We were exceptional (in Italy). We did everything right and it all came together. They’re a top team with a special way to play. I expect problems in this game.”

In the away fixture, Salah scored against Atalanta and has netted 10 goals so far this season with two in the Champions League. Earlier this month, Liverpool won 5-0.
