UEFA inaugurated this year the third club tournament in Europe: The Conference League. The contest brings together the lesser-known clubs of the old continent, but there are cases in which teams that usually compete in the Champions League and the Europa League, qualified for the first edition: Rome, Feyenoord, Copenhagen, Basel and Tottenham. The Spurs made up Group C and despite only playing five games, this Monday they said goodbye.
On December 9, the English team had to measure Rennes on the last date of the key, but the match was suspended due to an outbreak of covid-19 in the squad. Failing to find a date for the regularization, the governing body of European football declared the French the winner with the result of 3-0. In this way, those led by Antonio Conte finished third in the series and were eliminated from the international championship, the third most important.
