Some Spurs fans are dreading tomorrow’s UECL match after reading this stat


Spurs will kick off their UEFA Europa Conference League campaign this week with an away trip to Stade Rennes.

It will be the first time an English club compete in the newly-formed European competition. Given Tottenham’s quality and reputation in continental tournaments in recent years, Nuno Espirito Santo’s side are one of the favourites to win the Europa Conference League.

Yet Spurs race a tricky opening game as the north London side travel to France to face Rennes. The Ligue 1 side have been regulars in Europe in recent years.

Indeed, Rennes competed in the UEFA Champions League last campaign, a competition Spurs missed out on in the 2020/21 season.

A stat doing the rounds on social media has shown that Tottenham have not won in France in their last five trips across the English channel. Moreover, Spurs failed to score in the first two of these games, whilst they found the net just once in each of the last three.
