While Strasbourg was strongly affected by the virus a few weeks ago during its preparation for the season, it was Olympique de Marseille that saw its workforce decimated with several positive tests for Covid-19 this week. OM’s meeting against ASSE, scheduled for the opening of Ligue 1, has also been postponed until September.
