Southampton Fans

Southampton face Danish side Midtjylland this evening.

Southampton starting XI: Stekelenburg; Caulker, Fonte, Yoshida, Targett; Romeu, Wanyama; Mane, Ward-Prowse, Rodriguez; Pelle.

Southampton substitutes: K. Davis, Cedric, Long, S. Davis, Tadic, Martina, Juanmi.

Southampton's Europa League campaign continues this evening as Danish side Midtjylland arrive on the South Coast in what could be a tricky challenge for Ronald Koeman's men.

The Saints coasted past Vitesse in the last round, and now face another tough test against last season's Danish Superliga champions.

After a 3-0 loss to Everton in the Premier League on Saturday, Saints fans are looking for an instant response tonight with Midtjylland in town.

Koeman has named a strong starting line-up, with both Sadio Mane and Victor Wanyama both in the side despite The Mirror linking them with moves to Manchester United and Tottenham respectively.

The likes of Jose Fonte, Oriol Romeu, Jay Rodriguez and Graziano Pelle are also in the side, whilst Koeman can also call upon substitutes like Dusan Tadic and Juanmi.

The Saints will be expected to win the game, but Midtjylland - who won the title with a moneyball strategy last season - will be keen to spring a surprise over the two legs.
