New date set for Marseille vs PSG

PARIS - The Olympique Marseille v Paris St Germain match postponed because three PSG players had been diagnosed with the H1N1 virus will be played on November 20, Marseille said on Thursday.

"The LFP (French league) has decided that the OM v PSG game would be played on Nov. 20, 2009," Marseille said on their website.

The Marseille v Sochaux and Boulogne v PSG games scheduled for November 21 have now been postponed to December 2.

Marseille and PSG criticised the French League (LFP) on Monday after 20 people were injured and 18 arrested in clashes between police and fans following the postponement of the game.

The two clubs and local authorities were unhappy that LFP president Frederic Thiriez had waited until Sunday lunchtime to postpone that evening's match when 2,000 PSG supporters were already on the streets of Marseille.
