Hapoel take on Southampton on Thursday 29th September, 2016, with kickoff at 18:00. This match is currently being shown LIVE on BT Sport 3.

I know it’s traditional to talk a lot about the English team in these sort of games, but with my own personal team out of Europe this term Hapoel Be’er Sheva have rather taken a soft spot in this old hack’s heart. Named for an ancient city and with a stadium that seats just over 16k, they are an unlikely star of this stage, but have really impressed so far.

Drawn with mega-rich Inter Milan and contextually rich Southampton, the men from Israel started off by beating the overpaid Italians, and will want to continue their great form here against the Saints.
