London [UK], December 11 (ANI): Tottenham Hotspur's match with Rennes in the Europa Conference League will not be rescheduled and has been referred to a disciplinary panel, UEFA confirmed on Saturday.
The fixture which was scheduled for December 9 was postponed following a significant number of positive COVID-19 cases among players and relevant staff in the Premier League club.
A UEFA statement read: "Unfortunately, despite all efforts, a solution that could work for both clubs could not be found."

"As a consequence, the match can no longer be played and the matter will, therefore, be referred to the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body for a decision to be taken in accordance with Annex J of the above-mentioned competition regulations."
Earlier, Brighton & Hove Albion's home fixture against Tottenham Hotspur, due to be played on Sunday, was also postponed following a Premier League Board meeting.
