There was no immediate word on what would happen to Orenburg’s scheduled home game against Krasnodar on Saturday. Krasnodar has already had another of its games postponed and rescheduled for the league’s official reserve date of July 19.
Krasnodar is third and fighting to qualify for next season’s Champions League. Orenburg is 15th.
The Russian league restarted Friday after a three-month break and is playing with a reduced number of fans in the stadiums.
The restart was thrown into turmoil when Rostov put its entire first team into quarantine last week over a suspected virus outbreak affecting six players. When opponent FC Sochi refused to postpone their game, Rostov had to field a squad of youth and academy players. They were beaten 10-1.
Dynamo’s game against Krasnodar was set for June 21 but postponed after three Dynamo players tested positive for the coronavirus. The league and Russian soccer federation said in a joint statement Sunday that they were not considering canceling the season.
Shamil Gazizov, chief executive of seventh-place Ufa, said Tuesday in a statement that there was “a single case of possible infection” at the club.
