Spurs went to the top of Group D after a 3-2 win over Eintracht Frankfurt.
The group still hangs in the balance, with just three points separating all four teams.
Royal is still suspended for another two Premier League matches, and Conte took this opportunity to rotate Matt Doherty out of the side.
The Brazilian played the entire match, and took to Instagram to celebrate another three points.
Gil and Richarlison replied with Gil thinking the wing-back was on fire, and Richarlison impressed with Royal’s performance.

The wing-back has an OK performance, but Conte may still have some doubts.
Royal was at fault for Frankfurt’s second goal, and put his side under unnecessary pressure in the final minutes.
He did make one very good slide tackle though, and has shown he’s better player going backwards than forwards.
Royal will now have to watch from the stands to see how his replacement performs in the Premier League.
Plenty of pundits have been critical of Royal’s performances this season, with Jamie O’Hara calling him a ‘liability’.
Tottenham fans have yet to see summer signing Djed Spence, who could be the long-term solution to Conte’s right wing-back position.
They’ve also already been linked with other players in this position, including Lyon prospect Malo Gusto.
Although it wasn’t his best game, Royal’s teammates Gil and Richarlison were still supportive of their teammate and impressive with his performance.
It will be interesting to see if Conte reinstates him to the side when his suspension ends.
