Southampton prepare for Inter clash

Southampton face a huge test in the Europa League tonight against Italian giants Inter Milan but the South Coast side are relishing the occasion.

After a narrow defeat in the reverse fixture at the San Siro two weeks ago, Southampton cannot afford to lose this evening if they are to keep their hopes of progressing to the knock-out stages of Europe’s second-tier competition alive.

Sat second in the standings, level on points with Inter, a negative result this evening would leave them three points behind the Italians and potentially as much as five behind Sparta Prague with two games to go.

However, a victory would put the Saints in the driving seat to seal their spot in the knock-out stages of the competition and fans will be dreaming of a memorable night, as a victory against Inter would go down as one of the best results in their proud history.

Southampton head into the match on a run of just two victories in their last seven games in all competitions, with the club looking to bounce back from their 2-0 defeat to Chelsea on Sunday.
