Roma: Dzeko still positive for COVID

Roma forward Edin Dzeko is still positive for coronavirus and could miss the match against Parma, according to news agency ANSA.

The report from ANSA reveals the Bosnian has a low viral load, but the positive result is still there and he will be subjected to a new test in the next few hours.

Dzeko has scored three goals in five Serie A games this term but missed the 3-1 win against Genoa ahead of the current international break due to COVID-19.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan stepped up with a hat-trick in his absence, but the Giallorossi were hoping to have the 34-year-old back in action against the Gialloblu this week.

ANSA writes the test from yesterday came back positive for coronavirus, but the viral load was so low that they can hope the next test provides a negative result.

If he tests negative, Dzeko must undergo a fitness test before he can return to training.
