The draw for the Europa Conference Conference to be redone?

While the Champions League draw had to be withdrawn due to false manipulation with serious consequences, the Europa Conference League could also be withdrawn. The rules were not respected and the Rangers team could appeal.

UEFA has already made a name for itself with the Champions League draw which was withdrawn a second time following a mistake. Now, it is the draw for the Europa Conference Conference that could be called into question because of an error.

UEFA should make a choice regarding the match between Tottenham and Rennes, which was to be canceled on a green carpet offering victory to Rennes, if we follow the regulations linked to covid-19. During the first draw, one of the balls contained the name of the Vitesse Arnhem team and both that of Tottenham. It changed the draw for Leicester City.

A new mess

When Leicester was drawn, the bottle containing “Vitesse Arnhem or Tottenham” was not in the container. According to the verdict for Tottenham-Rennes, this could have an impact. Rangers, Leicester’s opponent, could appeal knowing they feel at a disadvantage. Thus, they could ask to invalidate the draw.

This could change everything for the Marseilles who had Qarabag as their opponent. Because of this match between Tottenham and Rennes which did not respect the rules, the draw could be redone. If the Rangers have not yet made an appeal, it is because they are waiting to know if the Spurs are eliminated on the green carpet.
