2nd-tier soccer game postponed in Spain after positive tests

The Spanish second-division soccer match between Alcorcón and Ponferradina has been postponed after four coronavirus cases for Alcorcón were confirmed

The Spanish league said those who tested positive — players and staff members — were asymptomatic and in isolation. The positive cases were detected on Saturday. The game was called off a few hours ahead of its scheduled start on Sunday.

Alcorcón, sitting 18th in the 22-team second tier, recently was punished for using ineligible players in a league game against Zaragoza.
