The medical protocol of the LFP envisages the postponement of a meeting if one of the two teams cannot present at least 20 players tested negative on an initial list of 30. Lorient would therefore only have 20 of these 30 players, then that he must receive Dijon (20th in L1) on Sunday then move to Nîmes (18th in L1) the following weekend.
