ROME – Crotone’s Romanian striker Denis Dragus has mild Covid-19 symptoms after a positive test for the coronavirus taken ahead of Saturday’s league game against visiting Juventus.

Other cases were reported at Torino, which did not name a footballer and two staff members who tested positive but said they are all without symptoms.
