Tottenham Hotspur unexpectedly lost to Pacos de Ferreira in the fourth round of the Conference League qualifiers. Tottenham’s squad was far from normal, but the 0-1 defeat certainly does not bring pride to the Premier League team, especially since they did not fire a single shot.
Playing in the least famous of the three European Cups was certainly not the goal of Spurs last season. Now, however, it may turn out that there will be no Londoner even in the group stage.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s players left the match against Pacos de Ferreira in a completely different squad than the weekend’s match against Manchester City. In the base eleven, not a single player had played against the country champions from the start.
However, there were a few well-known players on the North London side. For example, he played Christian Romero, Harry Winks, Brian Gill and Giovanni Lo Celso.
But in the first half, Pacos de Ferreira’s players showed that they can make quite a splash. Shortly before the end of the first half, Lucas Silva hit the net, who benefited from a one-on-one situation with Giulini.
I must admit that the progress of the landowners was well deserved. In the second half, the Tottenham game was also significantly different from what you would expect from a team in the Premier League.
Suffice it to say that “Cogoti” did not even provide one accurate shot in the entire match. As a result, the Pacos de Ferreira players won 1-0, but before the rematch, the question of promotion to the group stage is still open.
