Sparta take on Southampton on Thursday 23rd November, 2016, with kickoff at 18:00. This match is currently being shown LIVE on BT Sport 3.
The progress Southampton continue to make year on year is remarkable, with the loss of great players and good managers seemingly shrugged off like a winter coat, and their Europa League spot is yet more proof of concept. A win over Sparta would see them all-but secure a place in the next round, but that is easier said than done with their Czech opponents in great form.
At the time of writing Saints are second to their opponents this evening, and a loss could see their fate out of their hands on match day six, if Inter lose to Hapoel.
