Spurs vs Rennes won’t be played due to Covid-19


UEFA has confirmed on Saturday that Tottenham Hotspur’s match with Rennes in the Europa Conference League will not be played, which was earlier postponed due to Covid-19. The decision of the game has been referred to a disciplinary panel. 

A UEFA statement read: “Unfortunately, despite all efforts, a solution that could work for both clubs could not be found.

 As a consequence, the match can no longer be played and the matter will, therefore, be referred to the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body for a decision to be taken in accordance with Annex J of the above-mentioned competition regulations.”

The fixture which was scheduled for December 9 was postponed following a significant number of positive COVID-19 cases among players and relevant staff in the Premier League club.

Earlier, Brighton & Hove Albion’s home fixture against Tottenham Hotspur, due to be played on Sunday, was also postponed following a Premier League Board meeting.

 Eight players of Spurs’ first-team squad and five staff members have tested positive for COVID-19.
