Southampton vs Bournemouth prediction comes before Premier League sixth round matchup. This game will be played on Friday, September 20th, at St. Mary’s Stadium in Southampton, England. In this match preview, we bring you the best betting tips and correct score predictions based on the analysis of these two teams.
Southampton vs Bournemouth Betting Tips
After five rounds of the new season of the Premier League, both Southampton and Bournemouth have seven points. Both teams have two wins, two defeats, and one draw. That said, it seems these two teams are very similar in terms of quality.
And their previous duels show it. Four out of five of their previous meetings finished in draws. One, however, went to Southampton’s favour. It happened last season when the game was played at St. Mary’s Stadium, the home ground of the Saints.
Southampton are still looking for a home win this season and this game might be the right opportunity for that. The thing is that their opponent has some serious troubles with injuries. Although most of their key men are not on the list of absentees, the fact is that they’ve been working harder than expected, with no one to cover for them.
Still, even with a long injury list, Bournemouth have been performing pretty impressively lately. In the previous round, they beat Everton 3:1. What’s got to worry them ahead of the trip to Southampton is that this team is not famous for playing very well on the road. Last season, they won only 16 points in 19 away matches.
Both of these teams seem very powerful upfront, while their back hasn’t been doing a too terrific job. Actually, each of these teams has allowed more goals than they’ve scored so far this season. And in their previous meeting, we saw a total of six goals (3:3), which suggests we might see another goals’ galore on Friday evening.
Perhaps it’s wiser to bet on goals because these two teams seem pretty similar in terms of abilities. Anything can happen in matches like these and neither outcome would be surprising. But, if you insist on betting on the outcome of the game, our betting advice is to go for a draw.
