Eupen has asked for a postponement of the match against Cercle. At the General Meeting of the Pro League it was decided this week that clubs may again request a postponement. This is possible from 7 positive cases in the player core (Squad Size List A and played at least 30% of the total playing time) or 2 goalkeepers from the Squad Size Limit List A, of which the goalkeeper with the most playing minutes”, according to the Pro League. There is therefore a very good chance that the match will actually be moved to a later date.

The game between Zulte Waregem and KV Oostende this weekend was also postponed earlier and KV Mechelen also asked for a postponement.
