Lyon have asked for the second leg of their Women's Champions League quarter-final second leg against PSG to be postponed due to new Covid-19 cases.
Tests carried out on the squad on Monday revealed four new positive cases, bringing the total up to six after two were discovered at the end of last week ahead of their league trip to Dijon.
Lyon, who are the defending champions and record seven-times winners of the competition, lead 1-0 from the first leg and are scheduled to play the second leg at home on Wednesday.

"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," the club said in a statement.
UEFA did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment.
PSG were forced to forfeit their last-16 second leg match against Sparta Prague -- deemed a 3-0 loss -- due to Covid-19 cases in their squad earlier this month but they still advanced to the quarter-finals with a 5-3 aggregate score.
