UEFA confirm Tottenham and Rennes clash set to go ahead

Tottenham Hotspur's Europa Conference League clash with Rennes is set to go ahead despite a recent COVID-19 outbreak at the Premier League club.

A number of players and staff have reportedly tested positive for coronavirus.

It is a huge blow for Spurs, who could be without several players for their next three games.

Any player who tests positive must now self-isolate for a period of 10 days.

UEFA's rules state a match is only in jeopardy if a team have less than 13 players available, or no registered goalkeeper.

UEFA said in a statement to Sky Sports News on Tuesday afternoon: "The match is due to take place as scheduled."
