There are 24 matches in Europa League play this Thanksgiving Day, putting the other football to shame if we do say so ourselves (tongue firmly in cheek).

That includes two Premier League sides, with Southampton in Prague to face Sparta Prague at 1 p.m. EDT and Manchester United hosting Feyenoord at 3:05 p.m.

Saints sit two points back of Sparta in Group K, and hold a three-point lead on Hapoel Be’er Sheva, which hosts Inter Milan.

Man Utd can jump into Group A’s top two with a win over Feyenoord. If that happens and Fenerbahce fails to get max points against visiting Zorya Luhansk, United will go first.
