Bordeaux given fixture assistance
The Ligue 1 match between Bordeaux and Auxerre has been postponed in order to give the French champions more time to prepare for their UEFA Champions League clash against Olympiacos.
The Ligue de Football Professionnel (LFP) announced the decision following a meeting today, adding that it was "in the interest of French football".
Bordeaux were scheduled to host Auxerre on 20 February, three days before the first leg of their last-16 clash in Greece. No new date for the fixture has yet been announced.
Bordeaux, who are involved in both French cups, have a packed fixture list this month and were scheduled to play five matches in 13 days before today's decision.
