Tottenham got off to a bad start in the Conference League, the new European competition created by Uefa. This Thursday, the Spurs lost 1-0 to Paços de Ferreira, in Portugal, in the first game of the playoffs.
The Portuguese’s winning goal was scored by striker Lucas Silva, revealed by Flamengo (he defended the Rio de Janeiro club between 2018 and 2020).
At 45 of the 1st time, the Brazilian received an excellent ball and, face-to-face with goalkeeper Gollini, hit low to score.
Now, Tottenham, who used a mixed team on Thursday, will need to reverse the result in the duel back, on August 26, this time in London.
Remember that whoever makes it through this clash will enter the Conference League group stage.
As a result, Paços de Ferreira plays for a draw in the return match to qualify for the group stage.
Tottenham, meanwhile, will need to seek a two-goal win if they want to advance in the competition.
The ex-Flemish player was a torment in the lives of Tottenham supporters.
Very fast and constantly changing positions in attack, he stood out a lot in the match.
In his goal, he showed great precision in the submission, even earning compliments from coach Jorge Simão.
It was Brazilian’s 2nd goal in 6 matches for Paços de Ferreira this season.
Tired, he left for the 2nd time for Delgado’s entry.
Bad: Tottenham’s defender
Even with a line of five defenders and counting with the Argentine Romero, recently hired, the Spurs defense was leaked.
