KAS Eupen announced on Friday that the trifle of 14 players, as well as two members of the technical staff, have tested positive for the coronavirus.
The German-speaking club have asked the Pro League to postpone their match against Cercle de Bruges scheduled for Sunday as part of the 22nd day of D1A. “A response is expected this afternoon“, KAS wrote in its statement.
“All those affected by these positive results are now in quarantine“, said Eupen, 12th in the standings with the same number of points as the Circle (11th, 25 pts).
On Thursday, the Pro League has already postponed Saturday’s meeting between Zulte Waregem and KV Ostend due to numerous cases in the ranks of the Essevee (8 including 3 guards).
According to the Pro League’s Covid protocol, a club can request a postponement of a match if at least seven players, who have at least 30% playing time, or two Core A goalkeepers test positive.
Before the truce, the duel between Kortrijk and Antwerp had already been postponed due to many positive cases within the Great Old.
