UEFA confirms Tottenham vs Rennes will not be rescheduled

December 11, 2021

UEFA has released a statement confirming that Tottenham Hotspur’s Europa Conference League group fixture against Rennes will not be played.

The game was called off this week because of COVID-19 infections in Antonio Conte’s squad.

The European governing body explained that they tried to find a solution to reschedule the match in London.

“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 competition regulations,” the statement read.

Spurs said the game had been called off after they recorded 13 positive Coronavirus cases, involving eight players and the other staff.

Rennes later criticized the decision, insisting it was taken unilaterally by the Premier League side and that they reserved the right to appeal to UEFA.

Spurs were vying with Vitesse to finish as runners-up in Group G and secure a spot in a playoff round before the last 16. Rennes have already been confirmed as group winners.
