Spurs go into that second in the group but level on points with Vitesse.
A shock loss to NS Mura two weeks ago means Spurs need to win at home on Thursday to ensure passage to the knockout stages.
Since that loss, Spurs have recorded back to back home wins in the Premier League against Brentford and Norwich City respectively.
Conte is yet to lose in the Premier League with Spurs after replacing Nuno Espirito Santo last month.
A Premier League statement confirmed there were 12 new positive tests for Covid-19 in the latest rounds of testing.
"The Premier League can today confirm that between Monday 29 November and Sunday 5 December, across two rounds of testing, 3,154 players and club staff were tested for Covid-19.
"Of these, there were twelve new positive tests.
"The Premier League is providing this aggregated information for the purposes of competition integrity and transparency.
"No specific details as to clubs or individuals will be provided by the League and results will be made public on a weekly basis."
Tottenham are up to fifth in the Premier League and have a tricky fixture list coming up, including Liverpool on December 19.
They also have an additional game to play after their game with Burnley was postponed nine days ago due to heavy snow.
