Exciting singled out star Conte endures a nightmare when Tottenham loses

Ryan Sessegnon received a red card when Tottenham suffered a dramatic 2-1 loss to Mura in the Europa Conference League.

Spurs boss Antonio Conte had praised the player’s potential in his pre-game press conference, saying he couldn’t wait to see his performance.

However, in a sluggish performance that many of his teammates reflected, he received two fair yellow cards in the first half. Mura went into halftime with a one-goal lead, which was fully deserved after her excellent will and Tottenham’s poor performance.

In the second half, Conte made four changes at once and Spurs got back on the road. Harry Kane tied but they couldn’t find a winner and Mura scored a last-second winner instead. The qualification of Spurs for the knockout round therefore remains questionable before the final.

Mura was the much better team in the first half. Tottenham’s sloppy approach not only executed their game plan well, but also helped their cause.

The danger signs for the guests were there when Tomi Horvat shot over the bar within the first 10 minutes. He drove forward and decided to give it a try, but Spurs goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini watched the ball sail past.

However, Tottenham ignored the warning. Horvat opened the lead two minutes later.

After receiving a pass on the right, he flicked inward and easily got past Davinson Sanchez, who slipped. The Slovenian then rolled a fine finish into the top corner, which gave Gollini no chance.

Spurs tried to get back into the game but ended up being sloppy on offense and defense. Matt Doherty had a chance to cross but failed both times. For one try, Bryan Gil was unable to sort his feet with the ball right behind him.

But when the 20-year-old was in a better position, all he could do was overfire. Meanwhile, Kane shot wide and Dele Alli’s passing was poor.

To make matters worse, Sessegnon got a red card. After receiving a yellow card, Mura’s half jumped for an unnecessary challenge on the sideline.

Kane levels but Tottenham loses

Son Heung-min was one of the four players who came on for Spurs at halftime. He came closest to the second half at Tottenham’s first chance. He had saved himself the trouble, because the visitors clearly increased in intensity.

However, it was Kane who reached the Spurs level. Lucas Moura, replacing Doherty, fed the English captain a great pass and he pounded the ball over the goal and into the side of the net.

Kane had another chance from a corner but was denied at the back post.

But as Spurs continued to fight for a winner, Mura rose on the other end and Amadej Marosa scored the winner in added time. As in the first half, Sanchez was caught when his opponent came inside and Marosa’s shot was deflected over Gollini.

As a result, Spurs suffered defeat in a game they should have won. For Mura, however, it’s a feather in coach Ante Simundza’s cap.

Due to the defeat, Tottenham in Group G goes to third place before the last matchday.
