COVID-HIT Tottenham can still be awarded to European KO.
Uefa announced yesterday Last Thursday’s Europa Conference final match against Rennes will NOT be rescheduled after it was postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak in London.
Spurs faced a 0-3 defeat for not completing the fixture, which would see them out of the competition.
But SunSport understands that Uefa’s Control and Disciplinary Ethics Authority may decide to change the rules to allow the match to be played after the December 31 deadline.
Uefa’s statement seemed to condemn Antonio Conte’s team for a KO as it confirmed: “It was not possible to find a solution that would work for both clubs.
“The match can no longer be played and the matter will be referred to the Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Authority for a decision.”
During the pandemic, CEDB awarded 3-0 victories to clubs whose opponents were Can’t finish furniture because of Covid infection – and the Court of Arbitration for Sport upheld it.
But if the CEDB rules Rennes isn’t flexible enough in trying to schedule another date for the match, they could be punished.
The CEDB could also grant an exception to the December 31 deadline to allow the Group G match to take place in the new year – before the competition resumes in February.
Another complication is that France has a winter holiday that runs from December 22 to January 7.
Every decision will affect Vitesse Arnhem on the Dutch side, who is second in the group.
