Premier League outfit Southampton will make a trip to the San Siro this week to take on Italian giants Inter Milan in an eagerly anticipated Europa League tie.
Although the Italian outfit are a huge club in terms of their history, they are not a patch on some of the great Inter sides of old and currently sit in mid-table during their domestic campaign.
The Saints have been in decent form in the league, winning three of the last four to rise to a reasonable eight in the Premier League table.
After performing admirably over the last couple of years, the Saints were handed their just rewards last season when they qualified for this competition and they will hope to do well in it.
Ahead of this intriguing looking European night, VFC writer Lee Clarke takes a look at three things to look out for when Southampton travel to Milan. Hit the navigation buttons below to advance through pages!
Will Charlie Austin continue his good form?
The Southampton striker has been in scintillating form in front of goal this season, netting seven goals in all competitions to fire Claude Puel’s men up the league table
His latest strikes came in a 3-1 win over Burnley at the weekend, with Austin netting a brace against his former club and the Saints striker is clearly in confident mood.
After netting twice in the Saints’ first European game of the season against Sparta Prague, the 27-year-old will no doubt be itching to write his name into Southampton folklore with a goal in the San Siro.
