Tottenham are embarrassed by the lowly Mura

Mura v Tottenham

Antonio Conte could only watch in horror as Tottenham lost 2-1 to the little-known Mura.

When the Tottenham players arrived in Slovenia, they could have been forgiven for being a bit relaxed about their arrival UEFA Conference League match against Mura.

Mura is a team based in a small town in Slovenia and has a population of 11,000. The club didn’t even exist ten years ago. They entered the competition as the lowest ranked team in the league so they were expected to be seen as the boys with the voice of the whip.

However, few knew that Tottenham would be engaged in a battle of their lives as the players entered Fazanerija Stadium, where the seating arrangement would be easily swallowed up by Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Antonio Conte’s squad was reduced to 10 men after Ryan Sessegnon was sent off within half an hour.

Tomi Horvat put his team ahead but Harry Kane equalized minutes later. Despite the decline in form, Tottenham still have to find a way to win all 3 points.

However, Amadej Marosa scored into injury time to give Mura a historic win over a team that entered the Conference League as favorites and must now do it all in the final game of the competition where they will lock horns with Stade Rennais, who certainly doesn’t have a whip.

The match was an opportunity for many players to impress Antonio Conte, especially Delle Alli. However, the English midfielder had a poor dribble and was deservedly cut after 52 minutes.

After seeing the squad change a lot, Conte put his best players on the field in the second half but it was too late and the home team simply wanted 3 points more than the away team.

Tottenham will host Burnley in their next encounter, where Conte will no doubt look to ensure he doesn’t have to witness the same embarrassment. Tottenham are embarrassed by the lowly Mura
