FC Midtjylland midfielder Kristoffer Olsson knows all about Europa League opponents Southampton from his time at Arsenal.

FC Midtjylland midfielder Kristoffer Olsson has taken to social networking site Twitter to give his reaction to the Europa League draw.

The Danish club will take on Premier League outfit Southampton in the playoff round of the European competition this season.

Former Arsenal prospect Olsson is looking forward to the challenge and admits that it will be tough to get the better of the Saints.

Southampton will be favourites to get the better of Midtjylland over two legs and progress to the group stage of the Europa League.

Ronald Koeman’s side eased past Dutch outfit Vitesse 5-0 on aggregate in the third qualifying round.

The Saints have a very good squad and will be determined to make it through to the group stage of the Europa League.

However, Southampton cannot get complacent. For the Saints to progress, they must make sure that they win the home leg by two clear goals and do not concede any at St. Mary’s Stadium.
