RB Leipzig will be without Willi Orban for the foreseeable future after the centre-back tested positive for COVID-19, according to LVZ.


Yussuf Poulsen, who is currently sidelined with an injury, and Mohamed Simakan have also returned positive tests, per the report.

Despite being injured, Poulsen traveled with the team to Belgium for Tuesday's 5-0 victory over Club Brugge.

Orban and Simakan, meanwhile, missed the Brugge game after showing symptoms. RB Leipzig head coach Jesse Marsch and captain Peter Gulacsi both tested positive ahead of the mid-week match and remain in self-isolation.
