Union Berlin have been hit by a minor COVID-19 outbreak ahead of their Europa League encounter with Malmö on Thursday.


The Bundesliga outfit have confirmed today that head coach Urs Fischer, centre-back Timo Baumgartl and Tim Maciejewski will not be involved on Thursday after returning positive tests.

Union are yet to open their points account in the Europe League this season, having lost their first two games against Royale Union SG and SC Braga.

The Berlin side fell to their first league defeat of the season last Saturday, losing 2-0 against Eintracht Frankfurt, but remain top of the Bundesliga.
