Spurs lost 2-1 to Slovenian Minnows nine years ago


Spurs suffered a shock defeat to Slovenian Minnos NR Mura in tonight’s Europa Conference League and now everything has to be done on the day of the final.

The North London outfit fell behind early and Antonio Conte sent Ryan Sessegnon two yellow cards in the first half of the opening.

Harry Kane equalized in the 72nd minute but Amadeja Marosa was victorious in the 94th minute for the Mura team that had formed nine years ago and had lost all matches in the G group to date.

Murska Sobota, located in northeastern Slovenia, has a population of just over 11,000.

With just one game remaining, the Spurs are tied at seven points with Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem.

Even if they beat Rennes, the unbeaten group winner at home on December 9, they could still be knocked out, with Vitesse tonight drawing a 3-3 draw with the French team and hosting the bottom team Mura in their last group match.

If they finish second, the Spurs will then enter the knockout two-legged play-off – where the winning team enters the round of 16.

In Europe, you get the sense that Spurs have gone to 10 straight games without a clean sheet and that many fringe players will be out the door sooner rather than later.

After the match, Conte hesitated: “Three weeks later I am starting to understand the situation. It’s not that simple.
