"We are confident that this case will not affect the regular staging of the match in question".

Madrid are due to play their second leg of their Champions League round of 16 clash in Manchester on August 7. They will now look to turn around the 2-1 home defeat in the first leg of the round of sixteen to keep their title aspirations alive.

Based on the findings in the report, the newly-crowned La Liga champions retained the top position despite seeing their brand value drop by around 14 per cent - a outcome of the effects of coronavirus disruption and their 2018/19 results that saw the club exit the Champions League in the Round of 16.

Meanwhile, Spain has seen a spike in COVID-19 positives with thousands of new cases being reported on daily basis, taking its tally up to over 298,000 cases.
