Tottenham have been handed a boost ahead of their Europa Conference League clash with Rennes, with the French side set to be missing two key players.
That’s according to Ouest France, who say that both Lovro Majer and Jeremy Doku are set to be absent from the game.
Spurs start their European campaign on Thursday when they travel to Rennes for the start of their Group G campaign.
They’ll be keen to start off on the right foot and bounce back from a disappointing weekend which saw them beaten comprehensively by Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.
And it seems they’ve been handed something of a boost ahead of the game, with Rennes potentially missing three first-team stars from the game.
Ouest explain that they will ‘be without’ both Majer and Doku, with the former suffering from a hip problem and Doku still nursing a thigh injury which saw him ruled out last week also.
They could also be joined by Martin Terrier, who picked up an injury in the defeat to Reims on the weekend and is now a ‘big doubt’ for the meeting with Tottenham, according to their manager Bruno Genesio.
That’s sure to be nice news for Nuno Espirito Santo and co, particularly when it comes to Doku, who would have been relishing the opportunity after watching Palace’s wide players enjoy themselves at the weekend.
Of course, it doesn’t mean it will be a matter of just turning up for Spurs, but this, coupled with Genesio’s recent comments about his team, mean they should at least be confident.
