Sparta Prague 1 - Southampton 0: Saints made to wait on knockout place
Claude Puel’s side were undone by Sparta Prague - who sealed top spot in the group - through Costa Nhamoinesu’s early goal.
The defender fired in from close range after reaching a free kick from Borek Dockal that caught Saints’ defenders napping.
Virgil van Dijk missed a chance to equalise in the closing stages.
A win tonight would have seen Southampton through but now they must either beat or secure a goalless draw with Israeli side Hapoel Be'er Sheva in the final group game at St Mary's Stadium on 8 December.
