Contrary to what was expected, Lorient will not receive Dijon for the 20th day of Ligue 1, this Sunday afternoon at the Moustoir stadium. The professional football league (LFP) announced on Friday the postponement of the match after the discovery of twelve cases of Covid-19 in the Lorient workforce. Yesterday, eleven Breton players had already been placed in solitary confinement. After the last tests carried out this Friday morning, a new player in the professional group tested positive.
“After the opinion of the national COVID FFF commission, noting the certain absence of more than 10 players on the list of 30 FC Lorient players due to positive RT-PCR tests for its match against Dijon FCO, the Competitions Commission of the LFP decides to postpone the FC Lorient / Dijon FCO (…) match to a later date“, specified the LFP in a communicated.
The postponement date of the match is not yet known at this time. The last meeting postponed because of the Covid-19 dates back to last November 17, during Marseille – Nice.
