UEFA have confirmed that the Champions League tie between Linfield and KF Drita has been cancelled following a positive coronavirus test. 

The preliminary round tie between the Northern Ireland side and the Kosovan counterparts was due to take place on August 11 in Nyon, Switzerland.

It comes after a Kvita player tested positive on Monday, having previously produced a negative Cover-19 test on August 7.

The whole Drita squad also tested negative prior to their arrival in Switzerland.

However, a UEFA statement confirmed: “On Friday, in a separate case, a player from KF Drita returned a positive result for COVID-19 following testing on the eve of their match against Inter Club d'Escaldes (AND) in accordance with the UEFA’s above-mentioned protocol.

“This player was put into quarantine, together with one teammate after tracing found he had come into close contact with the affected player.
