Brazilian league game is postponed due to 10 confirmed Covid-19 cases

The first Brazilian League matchday game between Goiás and São Paulo was postponed minutes before the planned kickoff after ten players from Goiás tested positive for Covid-19.

Test results were announced early Sunday morning when Goiás requested the postponement to the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF), but the decision only happened when both teams were lined up for the match.

Besides the ten players that tested positive Sunday, Goiás has three other confirmed cases of Covid-19 -- all of them already in quarantine.
