UEFA include both Tottenham Hotspur and Vitesse Arnhem in the Europa Conference League knockouts draw

According to Football.London, UEFA have included Tottenham Hotspur and Vitesse Arnhem in the UEFA Europa Conference League knockouts draw. This in spite of Spurs’ final group game against Stade Rennais getting postponed.

The match against the Ligue 1 side was postponed due to a Covid outbreak at N17, which has left the group’s final standings shrouded in suspense. Vitesse beat NS Mura 3-1 in their last game, which has seen them leapfrog Tottenham in the group standings.

Should the latter win their game in hand, they would qualify for the next stage but it remains to be seen if and when it will take place. As a result, UEFA have included both teams in the draw for the next round.

Should Tottenham progress to the next round, they will take on Austrian giants Rapid Wien. It is a promising tie should we be the ones to make the game. While the Conference League might not be the top table of European football, the competition still represents an opportunity for Spurs to win a trophy.

Crucial decision on the way?

Spurs have seen their recent games postponed. First vs Burnley due to weather conditions and another against Brighton and Hove Albion because of the virus. With the new outbreak, we are looking at the possibility of the Leicester City clash getting postponed.

Should that happen, UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body may have an important decision at hand regarding the future of the club in the Conference League this season. There have been talks among the fans that we should forfeit the competition due to our current situation.

As a newly formed competition, it has not grown among the fans causing it to be given less value even when compared to the domestic cups. Some may question the integrity and sportsmanship, but if there is no available date and considering the pile-up of fixtures in the league, the decision from UEFA would be accepted in general.

We would lose the opportunity to challenge for a title, but the decision is forced on us. The circumstance of the game on Thursday could determine our fate in the European competition. The extent of the recent virus breakout is unknown, leading to a situation where we could see UEFA deciding to knock us out as a default if a date is not available.

There could be some dates available, but they are allotted to the replays of the FA Cup, which depends on whether we could get the job done in the first tie itself. Then again, the league games need a date that further pushes the idea of an exit in the Conference League closer to fruition.

Either way, fans of Spurs, Bitesse and Rapid Wien will all be watching the latest developments with bated breath.

A football enthusiast who is madly in love with the beautiful sport.
