Conference League: Laborde qualifies Rennes at full speed, Tottenham dark in Slovenia, Copenhagen passes

A team in the form of the Talent League, Stade Rennais is also at ease on the European scene. On the occasion of the first edition of the Europa Conference League, the third European Cup allowing more anonymous clubs to travel hundreds of kilometers across the continent, the Bretons had the opportunity to validate their ticket for the final phase , from the 5th day, in case of success against the Dutch at Vitesse Arnhem. There was no fourth success, despite the performance of Gaëtan Laborde – who else? – author of a hat-trick (9th, 38th, 69th). Not enough for the troops of Bruno Genesio, joined on the wire on the achievements of Huisman (43rd), Buitink (75th) and Openda (90th). But against all expectations, beaten at the very end of the match by the Slovenes of Mura (1-1), a meeting which saw Ryan Sessegnon, warned for the second time in the 33rd minute, leave the Spurs to ten, Tottenham allows the Stadium Rennais to take first place definitively and join the round of 16, avoiding a chopper match in London on the final day. In their misfortune, the English saw the Vitesse pass them in front of them.
