Greuther Fürth have been hit by five coronavirus cases prior to their Bundesliga game with SC Freiburg on Saturday.


"We had a player with a positive coronal test after our day off," Fürth coach Stefan Leitl said, according to Kicker.

"We had the team tested in the wake of that, and there were four other positive cases. All of them are in domestic quarantine and have had no more contact with the team. So the number of players available for the game in Freiburg is significantly reduced," added Leitl, who will travel to Freiburg with a squad of just 15 players.

In addition to the players out with coronavirus, Leitl will also have to do without right-back Marco Meyerhöfer and centre-back Justin Hoogma.

"Marco has a severe cold and will not be going. Justin Hoogma suffered a partial tear of the inner ligament in his left knee on Tuesday and will not be available to us for several weeks," said the Fürth coach.
