Mura vs Tottenham result, UEFA Europa Conference League final score and match report

Tottenham had one of the most embarrassing nights in history as they were beaten 2-1 by the lowest-ranked Europa Conference League side, losing 2-1 to NS Mura at Maribor.

New boss Antonio Conte saw with horror his team losing to a team with a UEFA coefficient of 341.

Even though they were reduced to 10 men just after the half hour Ryan Sessegnon was sent off, Spurs still should have had enough to take out opponents who had lost their last four games in the competition and are in the middle of the game. Slovenian league table. .

Instead, they lost to Amadej Marosa’s goal in the stoppage time after Harry Kane called up Tomi Horvat’s shock first match earlier.

This defeat means Spurs will likely have to beat Rennes in their last game to be assured of qualifying for the round of 16 and will no longer be able to qualify as group winners which means they will have to play. an extra turn.

It was another night of disappointment for those hoping for the chance to impress Conte, with Dele Alli particularly poor and not exceeding 52 minutes, and the Italian has further proof of the scale of the work he faces in north London.

The night got off to a rough start as Tottenham endured what are now usual turmoil on their trips to Europe.

Mura, who was only formed in 2012, took the lead in the 11th minute as Horvat was released on the right. He took advantage of Davinson Sanchez’s slide and cut inside before buckling a left-footed effort into the far corner.

At Kane, Alli and Tanguy Ndombele, Spurs had enough individual qualities on the pitch to hurt their opponents, but they were playing loose and self-injuring more in the 32nd minute.

The whole pre-match narrative was about the possibility of Sessegnon claiming his rights under Conte, but he had a night to forget as he received a second yellow card for an awkward challenge on Ziga Kous and was sent off. .

Kane nearly brought the 10 men back to level five minutes later after a neat turn, but his 12-yard shot went right off.

In the end, Spurs were fortunate enough to reach the interval just 1-0 as Nik Lorbek pulled an effort right off point-entrenched goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini.

Conte had seen enough at the start of the second half and introduced Son Heung-min, Lucas Moura, Eric Dier and Ben Davies – and it almost paid immediate dividends.

Son rushed into the penalty area, going around several defenders before stabbing the palms of Matko Obradovic, who made his first save of the evening.

From the resulting corner, Kane should have equalized, but he headed a clean header straight to Obradovic.

Spurs finally found a leveler in the 72nd minute as Kane produced a nice finish.

Two Mura defenders allowed each other a pass from Moura, allowing the England captain to clear his way and come home in style.

Spurs pushed for a winner, Moura having made an effort, but they never seemed to win and it was rather the Slovenes who capped a historic night.

Marosa was freed in the lower right, he cut inside Sanchez, and his deflected effort wound up on a helpless Gollini to trigger wild celebratory scenes.
