For the fourth date of Group G of the UEFA Conference League, Tottenham, with Antonio Conte on the bench for the first time, beat Vitesse 3-2 in an electric game that featured five goals in the first half and three expulsions in The complement.
The Italian coach had to face a tough compromise in his first game as head of the team. Spurs needed a win against the Dutch team to settle into their zone in the first edition of the international tournament, in which they are one of the strongest teams, by far, along with Roma.
Tottenham’s game started oiled and came with goals under his arm. Heung-Min Son, Lucas Moura and a goal against Jacob Rasmussen put the hosts in front 3-0 in just 28 minutes, but Vitesse reacted before halftime and approached with Rasmussen’s own goals, redeeming himself for his mistake , and Matús Bero.
In addition, the problems increased when Cristian Romero, who formed the rear with Eric Dier and Ben Davies, was sent off for a double yellow with more than half an hour of the game ahead and only one goal on the scoreboard. Fortunately for the hosts, five minutes apart, Danilho Doekhi and Markus Schubert saw the red on the close to take a breather.
With the victory, Tottenham edged out Vitesse in the zone and moved into second place with seven points, just one point ahead of their rivals tonight. Rennes, who defeated Mura by the minimum, continues as the leader, with 10 units.
The Korean forward scored the first goal of Conte’s cycle against Vitesse at the head of Tottenham, but it is not the first time he has received a coach in this way at the club. In 2019, Son converted for the first time in the José Mourinho era against West Ham in 2019 and then did the same against Manchester City, in August this year, in the first official match under Nuno Espírito Santo.
