Communiqué de presse

Olympique Lyonnais announces that PCR tests carried out this Monday morning, as part of the preparation for the second leg of the quarterfinals of the Women’s Champions League, have revealed four positive cases of COVID-19 within the women's first team.

The four positive cases reported this morning come on top of two other cases revealed at the end of last week, after PCR tests carried out on the entire squad before the trip to Dijon as part of the 17th round in D1 Arkema.

In view of the number of cases and the directives of the Regional Health Agency calling for the isolation of the entire women's squad, Olympique Lyonnais has asked UEFA to postpone the return leg which is currently scheduled for Wednesday March 31 at Groupama Stadium against Paris Saint-Germain.

Olympique Lyonnais also announce that as soon as they learned of the results, they notified UEFA and PSG of the very critical situation affecting their women's first team.
