Marseille-Valenciennes postponed due to heavy rain

PARIS (AP) - Marseille’s home match against Valenciennes in the French league Saturday has been postponed because of torrential rain.

Although Marseille’s pitch had been covered since the morning to give the game a chance of going ahead, the match referee decided the conditions at Stade Velodrome were too unsuitable to play in.

The French league has yet to decide when the match will be played.
