  1. Goodbye!

    Where do you fancy for a spring break then Manchester United fans? Amsterdam? Copenhagen? Rome? Prague? Some attractive jaunts there.

    Rostov or Giurgiu may be less appealing for Spurs fans. But spare a thought for Southampton fans. Their New Year trips will be restricted to Norwich and Burnley. At least they will be easier on the wallet.

    Join us tomorrow for more live football in the Championship and Scottish Premiership. Cheerio!

  2. Who could Spurs play?

    Last-32 draw on Monday

    Tottenham will be a seeded side in the draw as they were among the best third-placed finishers in the Champions League groups.

    That means they can play any of the sides who finished second in the Europa League groups. They can also play any of the four teams who were the worst third-place finishers in the Champions League.

    In a nutshell, Spurs can meet:

    Anderlecht, Astra Giurgiu, AZ Alkmaar, Celta Vigo, Gent, Hapoel Beer-Sheva, Krasnodar, Legia Warsaw, Ludogorets, Borussia Mönchengladbach, Olympiacos, PAOK, Rostov orVillarreal.

  3. Next for Man Utd?

    Last-32 draw Monday

    Manchester United will be unseeded as they finished second in their group.

    They can therefore play the best third-placed finishers from the Europa League but cannot meet Tottenham as they are also from England.

    United could face:

    Apoel Nicosia, Saint-Etienne, Zenit Saint Petersburg, Roma, Athletic Bilbao, Ajax, Shakhtar Donetsk, Schalke, Fiorentina, Sparta Prague, Osmanlispor, FC Copenhagen, Lyon or Besiktas.

  4. Don't forget...

    Southampton 1-1 Hapoel Beer Sheva

    The Daily Mail's Sam Cunningham picks up on an invite some may not want to hear just now.

  5. We shouldn't concede like that - Van Dijk

    Southampton 1-1 Hapoel Beer Sheva

    Southampton skipper Virgil van Dijk, speaking to BT Sport: "I feel so disappointed especially because of the way we conceded the goal. We can't let that happen at this level. I'm frustrated and struggling to put that frustration into words. 

    "We wanted to win because if you play on a goalless draw it can go the wrong way. We had opportunities in the first half and we weren't clinical enough."

    On Oriol Romeu losing possession on the edge of his area before Hapoel's goal: "The ball was close to our own box and we tried to play out, they pressed kamikaze-like and they won it. We need to look at it and improve a lot."

  6. Viva La Liga

    All seven of Spain's European representatives this season are through the group stages of the Europa League or Champions League.

    Southampton 1-1 Hapoel Beer Sheva

    Hapoel's players are throwing manager Barak Bakhar up in the air as they celebrate a famous night in their club's history. You know it is big when the 'bumps' coems out.

  8. Avoid?

    Last-32 draw on Monday

    Manchester United could face 14 possible sides in the last-32. All four of the Europa League's unbeaten outfits are on the list.

  9. Post update

    Southampton 1-1 Hapoel Beer Sheva

    Southampton skipper Virgil van Dijk is fronting up for the post-matches cameras. Fair play. I'd have hid in the shower after that. The words 'disappointing' and 'frustrated' are used often by the Dutchman. Full quotes to come.

    Neil Killick: Shameful Tactics Puel.  

    Andrew Priestley: Southampton tried to hold out for the 0-0 draw that would have seen them through. Risky tactics that look very foolish now.

    Daniel Woodley: Southampton have danced with the devil all night and now they have paid the price. Poor tactics all evening from Puel's side.

  11. Post update

    Southampton 1-1 Hapoel Beer Sheva

    Heartwarming scenes at St Mary's (for the non-Southampton fans at least) as Hapoel Beer Sheva's squad celebrate their remarkable success with the 1,500 travelling fans in one corner.

    They're partying like they have won the whole competition. And why not. It is the furthest they have ever gone in an European competition and they are also the first Israeli club to win on English soil.

    Southampton 1-1 Hapoel Beer Sheva

    The final whistle is greeted by loud whoops of delight by the Israeli players, with the bench racing on to the pitch to join their jubilant team-mates.

    Hapoel Beer Sheva, who had never played in the Europa League proper before this season, join Manchester United and Tottenham in the round of 32.

    Southampton 1-1 Hapoel Beer Sheva

    Hapoel race to the other end on the counter. And they win a corner. Game over surely...

  15. Post update

    Southampton 1-1 Hapoel Beer Sheva

    SO CLOSE! James Ward-Prowse swings in a cross to the far post - and there is Maya Yoshida. He must score! He doesn't. The Japan defender heads agonisingly wide...

  16. GOAL - Southampton 1-1 Hapoel Beer Sheva

    Virgil van Dijk

    GAME ON!

    Virgil van Dijk pops up in the Hapoel box to calmly sidefoot in Dusan Tadic's cross.

    Southampton are still going out as it stands. But they are through if they score again....

    Southampton 0-1 Hapoel Beer Sheva

    Faces around St Mary's are as gloomy as the south coast sky. Three minutes of stoppage time to create a footballing miracle.

    Southampton 0-1 Hapoel Beer Sheva

    Another cross into the box - this time from the left - is flung towards Maya Yoshida. He's like a modern-day Paul Warhurst. But his header lacks power and Hapoel keeper David Goresh easily gathers.

  19. Post update

    Southampton 0-1 Hapoel Beer Sheva

    James Ward-Prowse swings in a cross from the right flank, with Shane Long and Maya Yoshida - now playing as an emergency centre-forward - lurking. But Hapoel defender Miguel Vitor wants it more than both of them, making sure he wins the header.

  20. Post update

    Southampton 0-1 Hapoel Beer Sheva

    A half-hearted shout of handball in the Hapoel box by those Saints fans left at St Mary's. Plenty have already scarpered to the car park.

    The referee shakes his head. On we go...
