Hojbjerg strike saves Spurs from Conference catastrophe

Stade Rennais v Tottenham Hotspur – UEFA Europa Conference League Group G – Roazhon Park, Rennes – Report

Stade Rennais 2-2 Tottenham Hotspur

Substitute, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg scored fourteen minutes from time to spare Tottenham Hotspur from a UEFA Europa Conference League Group G defeat against Stade Rennais at Roazhon Park.

Hojbjerg profited from Matt Doherty’s toil after Flavien Tait had wiped out an early Loic Bade, then Gaetan Laborde had given the hosts the lead midway through the second period.

Tottenham Hotspur now turn their attention back to the Premier League on Sunday, September 19 when Chelsea visit the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium (4:30pm).
