2021-2022 football season comes with new competition from UEFA: Europa Conference League will be the new sensation. It will be the third event ranked by order after Champions League and Europa League. This cup will give all the teams who do not have any chance of entering the Europa League or the Champions. More teams will enjoy European nights, and some of them may make history. In this first season, we have a team like Lincoln Red Imperials from Gibraltar, teams from Armenia, Estonia, which is very important for them. Group G of this event brings us immediately an insidious match. Rennes will host Tottenham in a group where Vitesse and Mura are also present. The two main favorites to pass the groups are the English and the French, but watch out from Vitesse as they are not accessible. Mura may be a surprise, too, if other teams will underestimate them. This match finds the teams in this condition: Rennes has only 5 points after five games in Ligue 1 with the last two games lost. Tottenham started the season with three wins in the first three matches, winning with the same result 1-0. They lost the last game 3-0 against Crystal Palace away, and their overall performance has not been the best. Now it is time for European nights, and both teams have to give their best if they want to be on the top of the group and progress in the last 16 instead of the previous 32 that the second-placed team will advance to. So also the first place will be significant to be achieved. Let’s see who will want it more!
It will be their first-ever head-to-head match as both teams have not encountered each other in any competition or friendly game.
A lot of injuries for both teams in this crucial match and the coaches are not happy about it. Lo Celso, Romero, and Sanchez are in quarantine coming from South America World Cup Qualifiers. Son is injured and will miss this match, too, for the Spurs may not also play Eric Dier, Bergwijn, and Sessegnon because of injuries. On the other side, Rennes will not have in their squad Alemdar as he is diagnosed with Covid-19, Doku, Gelin, and Meling are injured too. Gomis is in doubt for this match also. A real headache for both teams at this stage.
