Nanterre in turn at forced rest. Originally, the Ile-de-France residents were to receive Bursaspor this Tuesday evening (6:00 p.m.) on behalf of the 5th day of the group stage of the Eurocup in Group D. But that was before. And like everywhere else for several weeks, the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic has passed through this. Result, instead of facing the Turks on the floor of the Palais des Sports Maurice-Thorez as was planned by the calendar, with the possibility of winning their second success in the competition and relaunching the standings while waiting for the continuation of the meetings later in the evening (8 p.m.), Isaia Cordinier and her teammates will take their troubles patiently, while waiting to return to competition. A few hours before the kick-off of the match, the Nanterre 92 indeed cooled the atmosphere by announcing that several positive cases had been revealed during the latest Covid-19 tests carried out by Pascal Donnadieu’s players, and that, as a result, their next two matches had been postponed.

No match against Cholet either!

“Following the PCR tests carried out at the beginning of the week on the entire professional team, the results indicated the presence of several players positive for Covid-19, all the players with mild symptoms and having been placed in isolation from the appearance of the first signs ”, indicates the champion of France 2013, who will therefore have to wait before rubbing shoulders with Bursaspor at home, in the same way as he also saw his next Jeep Elite meeting, again at Marcel-Thorez, against Cholet also postponed to a later date.

Nanterre, 4th in the standings after the first six days with three wins and only one defeat should have played his fifth game of the season against the poorly classified Choletais (16th with one victory and four defeats in five games), Saturday evening (5.30pm) during of the 7th day of the championship. “We will inform you as soon as we have more information,” said the club, at a standstill until further notice.
