Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris says his side's chances of finishing in the top four will be over if they fail to beat Southampton.
Spurs have been in the race for the Champions League places for the majority of the season, but have lost momentum in recent weeks and now sit fifth in the table having been overtaken by Chelsea and Arsenal.
Despite finishing fourth last year, the Lilywhites missed out on playing in Europe's biggest club competition due to Chelsea's victory in the tournament, an incident that left Tottenham even more determined to qualify this time around.
Saturday sees Andre Villas-Boas' men take on Southampton and punters may use their free bet to back them to take all three points.
Lloris says victory is paramount to their chances of finishing in the top four and believes anything other than three points will all but end their Champions League chances.
He said: "We want to be in the next Champions League but we know that if we don't get three points against Southampton our chance will be finished."
