Tottenham Hotspur appointed a new coach in the image of Antonio Conte and was able to take a breath of suffering after beating Dutch side Vitesse 3-2 on the fourth day of the group stage of the Conference League.
In a duel marked by the expulsion (one for Tottenham, Christian Romero, and two for Vitesse, Danilo Duje and Marcus Schubert), he achieved a positive result that he recovered from 1-0 on the Dutch box last day.
Heung-Min Son, Lucas Moura and Jacob Rasmussen netted Spurs’ 3-0 lead in the first 28 minutes that heralded a quiet duel.
However, before the break, Jakob Rasmussen and Slovak Matos Pero cut the distances and Conte’s men lived on the wires throughout the second half.
In the end, Tottenham, who is second in Group G with 7 points, remained three points behind Rennes and one ahead of Vitesse by six points.
Specifically, Rennes proved himself in the lead after defeating Slovenian Mora (1-0) with a goal from Loic Bede in the second half. Boring, but with trade, the French team ran as one of the favorites to finish the group stage in first place.
