Antonio Conte on his first day as Tottenham Hotspur’s Coach after the sacking of Nuno Esposito Santo, pulled off by slim chances a win over Vitesse in the Europa League on Thursday night.
In Antonio Conte’s first game in charge; Heung-Min Son, Lucas Moura, and Jacob Rasmussen’s own goal had put them in control before visitors fought back in retaliation but the comeback was incomplete; Cristian Romero was one of three players sent off.
In a five-goals action-packed first half, there were no goals in the second half.
Three red cards ensured there was no shortage of drama as Cristian Romero was sent off for a second bookable offence (59) before Vitesse defender Danilho Doekhi (81) and goalkeeper Markus Schubert (84) also received their marching orders off the pitch.
The result keeps Spurs sitting in second place in Group G as they bypassed Vitesse while Rennes’ 1-0 victory over Mura ensured the Ligue 1 club still sits in first place in Group G.
