Premier League: Southampton vs Bournemouth Prediction and Betting Tips. In last match on Saturday in Premier League, in Round 30, Southampton host Bournemouth at St Mary’s Stadium. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Southampton vs Bournemouth.
Southampton stand in the middle of the table in Premier League with the same number of points as Bournemouth. Both sides are far from the relegation zone, while on the other side they can’t reach the place which leads in any of European competition next season. However, they want to make good performance until the end of the season and collect a lot of points. Bad news for home side is that they have two attackers out due to injury. Newcomer Gabbiadini picked up an injury, while Austin is long time out, so Long should start in the attack. On the other side, their amazing midfielder Dusan Tadic is in the great form. Playing for the national team in the match between Georgia vs Serbia, he hit the net and made two assists, so he could be the most dangerous for Bournemouth‘s defence. There are some rumors that Dusan Tadic could move to Arsenal at the end of the season.
Bournemouth have managed to move up in the safer zone and they will probably avoid the relegation. They have 9 points more than the first team in the relegation zone and it’s hard to believe that they can relegate, but they want to be sure, so they want to take at least one point against Southampton. Their manager Eddie Howe is doing very good job with his team this season. Even some news announced that he could be the next England manager. Their striker Afobe and King are doing great job in the attack, so they believe that can stay unbeaten in this game. In the first part of the season, Southampton took all three points against Bournemouth, so visitors will be fully motivated to revenge them. Two central defenders from the beginning of the season are both absences (van Dijk is injured, while Fonte joined West Ham), so visitors see their chance in that fact.
Except Austin and Gabbiadini, home side miss McCarthy, Targett and van Dijk. On the other side, visitors will be without injured Federici and Wilson, while Mings is suspended. Arter, Fraser and Stanislas are all doubtful.
Southampton vs Bournemouth Predicted Lineups
Southampton: Forster, Yoshida, Stephens, Soares, Bertrand, Romeu, Davis, Ward-Prowse, Redmond, Tadic, Rodriguez.
Bournemouth: Boruc, Francis, Cook, Smith, Daniels, Surman, Wilshere, Ibe, Pugh, King, Afobe.
Southampton vs Bournemouth Prediction
Home side is in the better form and they are closer to take all three points, but I can’t underestimate visitors who are playing very solid this season. I expect interesting and open game between Southampton vs Bournemouth and at least three goals.
