Flu forces Betis postponement

MADRID - This weekend's Spanish second-division match between Real Betis and Villarreal B has been postponed after 13 Betis players contracted H1NI flu, the Seville-based club said on Friday.

"To those 13 players you have to add the four others in the squad who are injured," Betis said on their website.

"Betis would only have nine players available, which is the main reason for the postponement of the match," they added.
