The outcome of this fixture could well decide who finishes top of Group K. Sparta Prague go into this fixture two points clear of Southampton, having won each of their last three games in the competition.
They come into this match having won each of their last five home matches, where they have also kept a clean sheet in the last four of those.
Southampton eased to a 3-0 win over Thursday’s opponents in the reverse fixture at the start of the campaign, but have suffered a wobble of late. They have only won three of their last 10 matches in all competitions and have only won one of eight away matches this season. Naijabet.com
They haven’t even scored a goal on the road in their first two away matches in the Europa League and will need an improved performance on Thursday to have a shot at returning to England with all three points.
