Two Peru players have been ruled out of the South American World Cup qualifying match against Brazil after testing positive for COVID-19.

Ruidiaz, who played in the 2-2 draw at Paraguay last week, had been expected to be a starter for Tuesday's game in Lima. 

The Peru-Brazil game will be played in an empty stadium because of coronavirus restrictions. Peru counts more than 33,000 deaths from COVID-19.

CONMEBOL, which governs South American soccer, has convinced most local authorities to lift quarantine measures for incoming players.

Health protocols for World Cup qualifiers were approved by FIFA and CONMEBOL for one of the hardest-hit regions by the virus.
