Hapoel Beer Sheva 0 Southampton 0: Saints secure vital Europa League point

30 Sep

Tadic at least injected some much needed creativity into the Saints’ attack, his teasing second half cross narrowly evading Shane Long’s head.

James Ward-Prowse finally mustered the visitors’ first shot on target ten minutes after the break when his long-ranger was beaten away by home goalkeeper David Goresh.

But it was Beer Sheva who nearly nicked the win late on with captain Maor Melikson arrowing a shot across goal and Fraser Forester acrobatically keeping out substitute Ovidiu Hoban’s volley.
