Some Spurs fans on social media are angered by UEFA’s decision to award Rennes a 3-0 win against Tottenham after the match was called off two weeks ago. 

Tottenham had to beat the Ligue 1 side to seal their place in the knockout stages of the Europa Conference League but the game did not go ahead due to an outbreak of Covid-19 at the North London club.

UEFA subsequently confirmed that the match would not be rescheduled and that the result would be decided by their Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body.

European football’s governing body today ruled (via Football.London) that the game will be awarded to Rennes, thus meaning that Spurs have been knocked out of the competition.

Some Tottenham fans on social media are bewildered by UEFA’s decision and have urged the club to appeal the verdict.

However, others insisted that it could be a blessing in disguise for the Lilywhites that they do not have the extra matches to worry about in the New Year.

The verdict could certainly prove a blessing in disguise for Tottenham’s ambitions this season but I doubt either Antonio Conte or Daniel Levy would see it that way. 

The Italian would want a shot at winning the Conference League while Levy will be fuming at the lost matchday revenue. So, I would not be surprised if Spurs did appeal the decision.
