The decision comes a day after the postponement of Saturday’s game between defending champion Lille and Lorient because of a dozen positive tests in the Lorient squad. New dates for the games have not been set. Freiburg reported three virus case Friday in the German Bundesliga. Bayer Leverkusen said midfielder Nadiem Amiri tested positive.
