Tottenham Hotspur release statement after club website showed UCL tie vs Sporting CP as ‘postponed’

Tottenham Hotspur’s official Twitter account has released a statement which put the UEFA Champions League tie against Sporting CP being shown as ‘postponed’ on the club website down to a technical error.

Spurs’ league clash against Manchester City at the Etihad this weekend has already been postponed after the death of Her Majesty The Queen. The club’s next two fixtures came under doubt as well, with fans wondering if Spurs will get to play even once before the international break.

Now, the club has confirmed the Champions League group stage game against Sporting CP in Lisbon on Tuesday, September 13, will go ahead as planned. Spurs go into this game in good form.

The league win against Fulham was followed by a hard-fought 2-0 victory against 10-men Marseille at home. The Portuguese club, meanwhile, dispatched Eintracht Frankfurt in their opening group game.

Spurs would have big hopes this season

A win against them, hence, would mean Spurs are really in the driving seat going forward. This is a tricky group for us but we certainly could have had relatively ‘tougher’ teams to play against.

Manager Antonio Conte doesn’t boast a good record in UEFA’s premier club competition. A quarter-final finish with Juventus is the best he has managed, while Spurs fell at the final hurdle in the 2019 UEFA Champions League final.

The game against Sporting going ahead is welcome news when we consider the fixture list ahead of us. Another postponed game could have really made the upcoming months even more congested for us.

Spurs play against Leicester City at N17 next weekend and it is now being said that the Premier League could shift the venue of the game from London to the King Power Stadium to avoid another postponement.
