Marseille - Nice postponed

Initially scheduled at the Stade Vélodrome on Saturday, OGC Nice's Ligue 1 game with Marseille has been postponed to a later date by the LFP's Competitions Commission.

Le Gym should have been readying for a second derby in as many league games, but Saturday's fixture will not now go ahead after the French Football League made an official announcement on Tuesday. "Having been notified by the COVID FFF commission that more than ten players on OGC Nice's list of 30 are unavailable — due to RT-PCR positive tests — for their match against Olympique de Marseille, the LFP Competitions Comission, acting in accordance with article 2.4.2.2. of the 2020/21 season match organisation protocol, has decided to postpone the Olympique de Marseille/OGC Nice game in Round 11 of the Ligue 1 Uber Eats season and initially scheduled for Saturday 21 November, 2020, at 9pm CET to a later date."
