Marseille v Nice Ligue 1 game postponed due to COVID-19 cases

PARIS (Reuters) - Saturday's Ligue 1 game between Olympique de Marseille and Nice has been postponed following a string of COVID-19 cases within the Nice team, the French professional league (LFP) said on Tuesday.

The LFP said in a statement that more than 10 Nice players had tested positive for the novel coronavirus, meaning that according to its health regulations, the match could not take place.

The LFP has not yet set a new date for the game.
