PARIS (AP) -- Two first-division matches in the French league have been postponed because of freezing weather conditions.

The match between Marseille and Lyon was the only match remaining for Sunday after Caen vs. Auxerre and Sochaux vs. Lille were called off.

The LFP has not set a new date for the postponed matches.

Despite the cold, all other matches went ahead on Saturday, although Saint-Etienne's home game against Lorient was abandoned after 10 minutes because of a frozen pitch. Two other games were moved to an earlier kickoff time on Saturday.
