Lyon request UEFA to postpone quarter-final v PSG due to COVID-19 cases
(Reuters) - Olympique Lyonnais have requested European soccer governing body UEFA to postpone their women's Champions League quarter-final second leg against Paris St Germain after discovering new COVID-19 cases in the squad, the French club said on Monday.
Lyon, who are the defending champions and record seven-times winners of the competition, lead 1-0 from the first leg and are scheduled to play the second leg at home on Wednesday."In view of the number of cases and the directives of the Regional Health Agency calling for the isolation of the entire women's squad, Olympique Lyonnais has asked UEFA to postpone the return leg," the club said in a statement.
UEFA did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment.PSG were forced to forfeit their last-16 second leg match against Sparta Prague -- deemed a 3-0 loss -- due to COVID-19 cases in their squad earlier this month but they still advanced to the quarter-finals with a 5-3 aggregate score.
