"We played in the Europa Conference League last season and weren't able to overcome the group stage. We lost against Mura, Vitesse, Pacos de Ferreira last season. Now we took a step forward but I think it is not enough and if we want to be competitive, we have to fight."
Spurs appeared to lack the intensity needed on a big Champions League night. Conte admits his team found it difficult to bring the required level.
He added: "For sure in our mind it was to put pressure on with intensity but in the first half we found it difficult offensively. We found space to receive the ball and create one-on-one but we struggled.
"We felt a bit of pressure. I think they need to play regularly this type of game to try to improve."
