Saints' Europa League opponents confirmed

By SFC Media time Fri 26 Aug

Southampton will face Internazionale, Sparta Praha and Hapoel Be'er Sheva in the group stages of the UEFA Europa League.

Claude Puel's men will face Italian giants Inter, who finished fourth in Serie A last season, Czech Republic outfit Sparta Praha and Israeli side Hapoel Be'er Sheva as they tackle the group stages of the competition for the first time in their history.

Speaking about the draw, Executive Director of Football Les Reed said: "It's a very exciting draw for everyone involved at the football club. There are some big challenges for us, with a big giant in Inter Milan.

"I'm sure everyone will look forward to that home and away, but the other two games will also be great tests for us with excellent atmospheres."

As soon as we have the confirmed fixture dates, we will announce them on!
