Rennes (France) (AFP) – With the equalizer of substitute Piemil Emile Hoybjerg, Tottenham Hotspar drew 2-2 from his trip to France to play against Rennes in the new Europa Conference League on Thursday.
Loic Badé’s own goal led the Spurs in Brittany, but Flavien Tait tied the tie and Gaëtan Laborde opened the Rennais in the 72nd minute.
The lead was quickly canceled by Hojbjerg. In this situation, after a 3-0 drive at Crystal Palace last weekend, it was a good result for Tottenham of Nuno Espírito Santo.
“It wasn’t perfect, but after admitting, he showed a lot of personality and beliefs to change the outcome,” Nuno said of his second string lineup.
“They are a difficult team to play and it’s not easy to analyze the game — we have many players lost their positions.”
As a result, Renne’s support, dissatisfied with the recent performance, spread a huge banner with an English message, “Are you ready to fight?” Before the kick-off.
Finishing in the Top 4 of the Premier League and returning to the Champions League must be a priority for the Spurs, but provides a viable route to silverware for clubs that haven’t won anything since the 2008 League Cup. It is wise not to ignore the competition. ..
The next match in Group G will face Slovenian champion Mura, who lost 2-0 to Dutch Vitesse Arnhem on Thursday.
But before playing against Chelsea on the weekend, this was not a smooth trip to France for Tottenham.
This week’s Agricultural Show in Rennes meant a shortage of hotel rooms, forcing them to spend Wednesday night in the town of Saint-Brieuc, 100 kilometers away.
Nuno was then injured during the game and lost both his first wings, Stephen Belfwin and Lucas Moura.
– Kane’s Quiet Night –
The coach has made seven changes since the Crystal Palace blunder. Among the players left in England was Son Heung-min, and Hugo Lloris was one of the players left on the bench.
Harry Kane, whose only goal so far this season in the playoff round against Portugal’s Pacos de Ferreira, played and wore a captain’s armband.
Visitors took the lead within 11 minutes when Kane fired Lucas from the right side and the Brazilian ball crossing the goal was turned into an own goal by Bird.
Rennais, who spent 80 million euros ($ 94 million) on a new signing in the summer, played a one-on-two match with Serhou Guirassy in the middle of the first half, scoring a low shot over Pierluigi Collina.
Kane forced a save from Rennais keeper Romain Salin in the second half of the first half, but took off in the 54th minute after a quiet night.
When Labold tapped in after Gorini scored Kamaldeen Sulemana’s shot, 21,500 Rennais fans saw their team come forward.
However, four minutes later, when Tate was able to help Matt Doherty cross from the right side to Hoybjerg, the Spurs raised the level and the Danish midfielder rushed to score.
The Conference League is the new third tier of European club competitions, with only one team from each of the largest leagues on the continent.
Rome represents Italy and Jose Mourinho’s team defeated CSKA Sofia 5-1 from behind.
Captain Lorenzo Pellegrini has made two appearances in Rome, with Stephan El Shaarawy, Gianluca Mancini and Tammy Abraham also scoring.
Germany’s only team, Union Berlin, lost 3-1 in Slavia Prague, but there is no Spanish team at all as Villarreal’s representative Villarreal won the Europa League and entered the Champions League.
Lincoln Red Imps, meanwhile, made history by losing to Greece’s PAOK 2-0 at home and becoming the first team to play on the group stage of the European tournament from Gibraltar.
