WTA Moscow: Simona Halep – Veronika Kudermetova, Thursday, 18:30, Digi Sport 2
League 2: Petrolul – Steaua, Thursday, 19:30, Digi Sport 1
Lighthouse President, Gheorghe Popescu, says the match can only be postponed if all unavailable FCSB players are tested positive for COVID-19. In the case of FCSB, seven players tested positive for COVID-19, while six are injured.
From the information Digi Sport, FCSB is currently trying to get the game postponed with Farul. The Farul – FCSB match should be played on Sunday, from 20:30, live at Digi Sport 1.
Gica Popescu announces that LPF could refuse FCSB’s request to postpone the match: “The rules must be respected! We played without the 5 players called up to the group”
“I just want the rules to be followed. As far as I know, a match can be postponed exclusively because of COVID-19 infections, not because of injuries. We have been preparing all week with the thought that the match will be played, not us. We will respect any decision of the LPF, but we want everything to be done according to the regulations!
I think it would set a dangerous precedent. The rest of the teams could later postpone a match at any time, saying they have ten injured players. We played at the beginning of the season without five players who were summoned to the Olympic Games, and in addition to these we had four injured. We just want the rules to be followed, nothing more!
Revered or hated, hero or murderer, Fidel Castro was a fascinatingly controversial figure. Come to Digi Online to see Fidel Castro: The Charisma of a Dictator. From 22:00 on Digi World.
The regulation must be the same for everyone. And at one point we went through four junior sheets to complete the batch. That’s why there is List A, List B … I repeat, we just want the rules to be followed. “, said Gheorghe Popescu, for Digi Sport.
FCSB has 13 players unavailable, but not all of them have been infected with COVID-19
Protocol for COVID-19 taken over by LPF and FRF of UEFA does not clearly state what happens in such a situation: “The match can be played if a team has 13 valid players, including a goalkeeper”. In the end, the LPF will decide whether the match can be postponed or played. According to Digi Sport, given that this is an outbreak of COVID-19, LPF will also take into account the number of injured players regarding the request to postpone the game.
13 players are unavailable at the moment, but Andrei Miron and Florin Tănase, injured in the last days, are also on the list.
However, Miron and Tănase could be recovered by Sunday, at the match with Farul. In the case of the other injured players, the chances of recovery by the time of the game are very small.
- Valentin Creţu, Iulian Cristea, Sorin Șerban, Răzvan Oaidă, Andrei Cordea, Valentin Gheorghe and Octavian Popescu tested positive for Covid-19. At FCSB, only Budescu and Keşeru are vaccinated.
- Ionuț Panțîru, Adrian Șut, Ovidiu Popescu, Constantin Budescu, Florinel Coman and Ivan Mamut are injured
