The Latest: Spanish soccer match postponed because of virus

The Latest on the effects of the coronavirus outbreak on sports around the world:

The Spanish second-division soccer match between Alcorcón and Sabadell has been postponed after nine new coronavirus cases were found among Alcorcón players and staff members.

The Spanish league says two players were among those who tested positive ahead of Wednesday’s match.

Three other players and one staff member tested positive last week. That prompted the suspension of the team’s match against Ponferradina on Sunday.

Alcorcón is in 19th place in the 22-team standings with four points from five matches.
