Southampton could be about to embark on one of the greatest games in their history on Thursday night, as they travel to Milan to face Inter at the San Siro.
Our local Saints fans here in the Transfer Tavern simply cannot wait to see their side strut their stuff.
Whisper it quietly, but Southampton could be going there as genuine favourites with Inter in such dire straits.
The Italian side lost again at the weekend to leave them in the bottom half of Serie A as their fans rift with Mauro Icardi grew ever larger – they even celebrated him missing a penalty.
All of this, then, could give the Saints a very welcome boost as they to carry their recent good Premier League form into Europe, and this stat put up by @Squawka on Twitter suggests goals could be coming:

The Saints absolutely battered Burnley for chances at the weekend and as this stat suggests, they’ve been doing that a lot this season so now it’s time to show Europe just what they can do.
