Vitesse vs Tottenham LIVE! Europa Conference League

Nuno Espirito Santo will give a chance for his fringe players to impress as Tottenham travel to the Netherlands for a Europa Conference League clash with Vitesse Arnhem.

The top of Group G is tightly-packed ahead of the evening kick-off with the Dutch team third on three points, behind Spurs and Rennes on four. In tonight’s other game, Rennes travel to bottom side Mura.

Tottenham’s 5-1 win over the minnows in their last Conference League outing has sparked a three-game winning streak, although they did not have it all their own way against Aston Villa and Newcastle.

All 11 players who started the victory on Tyneside are being rested tonight, meaning it will be a youthful Tottenham XI keen to impress.

However, the Dutch club have claimed three wins on the bounce in the Eredivisie and could prove to be formidable opponents at the GelreDome.

With kick-off at 5.45pm, follow the action with Dan Kilpatrick in Arnhem!

Live updates


Second-half begins! Vitesse 0-0 Tottenham

The players are back out. Let’s see if anyone can find a winner…


The BT Sports pundits are far from impressed with Tottenham at the break.

Glenn Hoddle says: “If that’s a cup final, they’re not playing like that. Why wait for the rollocking at half-time?”

Chris Sutton adds: “There’s a lot of players out there who look like they don’t want to be there.”


In fact, there are some interesting scores at the break across the other Europa Conference League matches – the majority of which are taking place now.

Jose Mourinho’s Roma are 2-1 down in Norway to Bodo/Glimt, while Greek side PAOK lead 2-0 away to ten-man Copenhagen. In the only other game featuring a team you have definitely heard of, Feyenoord lead Union Berlin 2-1.


Elsewhere in Group G, a good game is happening. NS Mura levelled against Rennes but the French side are back in front, thanks to Laborde’s goal on the brink of half-time.


Half-time! Vitesse 0-0 Tottenham


45 mins: One minute added on.

There’s not much to get the pulse racing here but Spurs are starting to show a few signs of more invention as half-time approaches. For all of Scarlett’s inexperience, the midfield five are all full internationals and should be able to create more than they have so far.


43 mins: Davies and Bergwijn combine well on the left before the Dutchman faces up to his defender and fires a wayward shot into the crowd.

The ball comes back down the right with Tanganga crossing nicely, with the ball cleared and a foul won by Vitesse.


41 mins: In more game-related news… there isn’t really any.

Bergwijn is booked for dissent, after nudging back the Vitesse free-kick taker as he put the ball down for a foul in his own half.


40 mins: It was someone’s bright idea to give the Vitesse fans yellow flags, which means every time something happens in front of the stands, they flag in a surprisingly accurate linesman-like manner. Fortunately, the referee hasn’t fallen for it yet.
