Al-Qadri confirmed that the captain of the Carthage Eagles, Wahbi Khazri, and 11 others have contracted coronavirus and will not be available for the game. The 11 players are Aissa Laidouni, Dylan Bronn, Ghaylène Chaalali, Ellyes Skhiri, Anis Ben Slimane, Mohamed Romdhane, Ali Maâloul, Ben Hmida, Aymen Dahmen Yoann Touzgha and Issam Jebali.
