Tottenham compromised in the European Conference League

Tottenham will not have good memories of Thursday’s trip to Slovenia. The English giant lost to the local Mura 1-2 and made the promotion to the knockout stage significantly complicated.

Tottenham recently started working with Antonio Conte to get him back on track after a poor start to the season. The Italian trainer has been doing so far with varying degrees of success. On Thursday, Tottenham unexpectedly lost in the away game of the European Conference League with the Slovenian Mura.

Londoners joined this meeting as the undisputed leader. Until now, Mura has been an outsider for the G group, without even a single point on her account. A win would put Tottenham in a comfortable position for the last round.

The team led by Antonio Conte entered the game badly, conceding a goal after the 11th minute. The situation of the guests was additionally complicated by a red card for Ryan Sessegnon. The clearly irritated coach made four shifts after the break, and Tottenham started to catch up. Harry Kane’s hit unexpectedly gave the hosts a winged goal, who scored the winning goal in the last minute of added time.

Thursday’s result is undoubtedly one of the greatest achievements in the history of Mura. The Slovenian champion has no chance to continue playing in the European Conference League, but the vision of defeating the recent Champions League finalist definitely compensates for it.

The sensational defeat made it much more difficult for Tottenham to participate in the competition in the spring. He is currently in third place in the table and in the near future he has a match with Rennes, who has already managed to secure a promotion from the first position. The English need a victory in the last round, while losing points from Dutch Vitesse.
