OUT! Spurs dumped from Europe as UEFA declare Rennes victors

Tottenham are out of the Europa Conference League, with Vitesse reaching the knockout round.

After the final group game between Spurs and Rennes was called off, UEFA announced they would rule on the result, with Vitesse needing the Londoners to lose so to follow leaders Rennes into the knockout phase.

And it was announced this morning by UEFA that their Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body has awarded the game 3-0 to Rennes.

As such, Vitesse join Rennes in the knockout phase and Tottenham's European campaign ends.

A regulation defeat for Tottenham was the most obvious, as the English club were unable to play themselves due to an apparent lack of players available. The players of Stade Rennes had already arrived in England.
