Despite Antonio Conte’s stance that they wanted to replay their Europa Conference League game against Rennes, the club won’t be heading to his wishes.
Spurs were thrown out of the competition after UEFA awarded Rennes their last group game after Spurs failed to honor the game due to the unavailability of their key players due to Covid.
Reports from Football.London now reports that Spurs won’t appeal with the fixtures for the next round due to be played this month.
The decision saw Spurs finish third in their group after the six games and just three points behind second-place Vitesse. It means that if they were to play the game against the French side and been able to get a victory, they would have had a good chance of securing qualification from the group.
The game was scheduled to be played in December, but Spurs had to call it off due to their Covid outbreak, which was confirmed after the visiting side had landed in the capital. A decision on who would secure their spot in the next round was not confirmed before the knockout draw and Tottenham would’ve played Rapid Vienna if they had qualified.
The Lilywhites have had a number of games called off this season already due to a number of complications and are still waiting on new dates for their postponed games against Burnley, Arsenal, and Brighton.
