Odisha FC’s previous match against ATK Mohun Bagan on Saturday was also postponed after a player in the opposition team tested positive in what became the tournament’s first official COVID-19 positive case in a stringent ‘bio-bubble’ in Goa. But after this there has been concern about the spread of infection in the bubble, after which the top four players of ATK Mohun Bagan were also found positive.
