PARIS (AP) - Bordeaux’s home game against Lorient on Sunday has been called off because of heavy rainfall.

The French league said in a statement Saturday that the poor weather conditions meant that the playing surface is impracticable. It has been raining heavily in the Bordeaux region since Friday.

Bordeaux are currently seventh in Ligue 1 with Lorient currently occupying 10th place.

No new date for the match has yet been set, the LFP said.
