Premier League: Southampton vs Burnley

Southampton vs Burnley Betting Tip and Predictions. In the Round 8 in Premier League, Southampton host Burnley at St Mary’s Stadium. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Southampton vs Burnley.


Southampton haven’t made the good start of the season in Premier League and they failed to win in the opening four rounds, but after that they have improved their performance and currently stand at the middle of the table. Home side is unbeaten in the last 6 matches in all competitions (4-2-0), but the interesting fact is that they they didn’t concede a single goals on all those 6 games. The match against new promoted team Burnley could be the good chance for Southampton to continue with the good performance and win for the 3rd time this season in league. Their defence is doing great job so far, but they need to make something in the attack. Two important strikers Bertrand and Long are both injured, so their replacement Austin has to do something upfront opponent goal. Good thing for Southampton manager Claude Puel is the recent form of play maker Dusan Tadic. The Serb has exploded in Serbian football national team and in three matches he scored 3 goals and assisted 5 times. Without any doubt he could be the most dangerous player for visitors defence.

Burnley promoted in Premier League last season and their main goal is to avoid relegation and stay in the best football league in England. They are currently standing out of the relegation zone and they believe that can stay there after this game. Visitors are playing solid upfront their supporters (2-1-2), but their away performance is very poor. In the away matches this season in Premier League, Burnley lost both games. First, Chelsea smashed them 3-0, while in the second game away from home, last season Champions Leicester City beat them with an identical result. Interesting fact is that visitors failed to score away this season. bad thing for Burnley could be the fact that their important striker Andre Gray is suspended, so they will be in trouble to score. The match against Southampton is very important for them and they will be satisfied if they take one point, but home side will be fully motivated to beat them.

Team News

Home team miss Cedric Soares and Ryan Bertrand due to injury, while Shane Long is doubtful and he will probably start the match on the bench. Gardos, Pied and Boufal are also out. Visitors miss their striker Andre Gray due to suspension and injured Barnes, while their first goalkeeper and captain Tom Heaton is doubtful, but he should probably start at the goal line.

Southampton vs Burnley Predicted Lineups

Southampton: Forster, Martina, Fonte, van Dijk, Targett, Davis, Romeu, Hojbjerg, Tadic, Redmond, Austin.
Burnley: Heaton, Lowton, Keane, Mee, Ward, Gudmundsson, Hendrick, Marney, Defour, Boyd, Vokes.

Southampton vs Burnley Prediction

Southamption is without any doubt better side and they are favorites to win this game. Visitors will probably play defensively and try to secure their net. I don’t believe that Burnley could score on this game. However, I expect interesting match between Southampton vs Burnley and victory of home side.
