The Kielce team being quarantined following the discovery of seven cases of coronavirus within them, the Champions League match against PSG, scheduled for Thursday, has been postponed to a later date.
While its week should be very busy, PSG Handball will be able to breathe. The six-time champion club of France was, in fact, to play three games in six days but the coronavirus decided otherwise. While the Parisians’ trip to Istres scheduled for December 6 as part of the 11th day of Lidl Starligue has already been postponed due to cases of coronavirus still present in the workforce of the Provencal club, the match of the 6th day of The Champions League group stage against Vardar Skopje, due to be played on Tuesday, suffered the same fate with several players of the Macedonian club being contaminated.

Seven cases identified in Kielce, players placed in quarantine
It was therefore to remain from this infernal week that the match of the 9th day, still at the Pierre-de-Coubertin Stadium, against Kielce on Thursday. But the Polish team will ultimately not make the trip to the capital. Indeed, the last wave of screening tests carried out within the Kielce workforce has detected no less than seven players positive for coronavirus, an eighth member of the club having received an inconclusive result. Contamination that could result directly from the match played on November 25 against Vardar Skopje, who reported four cases in the days following the match. As a result, the entire Kielce squad was placed in segregation for security reasons, forcing the European Handball Federation to postpone the game to a later date.
