Saint-Etienne - Lorient frozen out

Lorient's Week 22 visit to Saint-Etienne was abandoned after just ten minutes on Saturday afternoon, glacial temperatures at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard forcing the referee to call a halt to the match and postpone it until a later date.

The match had already had its kick-off time brought forward to 15:00 CET (from 19:00) as the LFP did its best to adapt to the sub-zero temperatures and have all the weekend's matches go ahead as planned, but with one half of the pitch in an unplayable condition, referee Benoît Bastien called a halt to proceedings.

To be determined

With predicted weather conditions not permitting the LFP to have the match played on Sunday afternoon, the match has been postponed until a date to be set by the LFP's Competitions Commission in due course.
