Southampton vs Liverpool Prediction & Betting Tips

Those looking for Southampton vs Liverpool prediction and betting tips are at the right place because we’re not going to discuss everything about Friday’s game at St. Mary’s stadium. So, let’s start!

Mohamed Salah, Liverpool

Southampton

They still got some relegation worries, but the Saints will probably stay in the safe zone till the end of the season. The thing is that even though they have only 5 points more than Cardiff, which is the closest team from the relegation zone, their schedule suggests they will be able to collect enough points.

Furthermore, there are a few other teams in the basically same situation as them, so Southampton fans shouldn’t worry too much. Of course, this doesn’t mean that they can relax. On the contrary, they need to keep on playing well. And they’ve been playing really well lately.

Actually, their good form starches back all the way to the moment when Hasenhuttl was appointed their manager. Since he’s been in charge, Southampton have been playing much more offensively, which brought them a lot of success in terms of points.

They haven’t been too great at home, though. Actually, they’ve won 18 points at home, while winning only 3 less away. For the sake of this Southampton vs Liverpool prediction, we got to mention that they did win their previous two Premier League games played at St. Marie’s stadium, including the one against Tottenham.



Liverpool

The Reds have set their eyes on their first Premier League title ever and the win against the Spurs in the previous round has given them confidence that they actually can make it. With a goal scored in the final minutes of the game, Liverpool were a bit lucky. Still, no one can say they didn’t deserve the win. On the contrary, they were the better of the two.

Another good news for Liverpool fans is that their team’s fixture list seems pretty good. They do fight on two fronts – the Premier League and the Champions League, but their schedule isn’t too difficult. They play the quarterfinal of the Champions League against Porto, while in the English top flight, their only opponent from the top 6 is Chelsea.

The same isn’t the case with their title rival, Manchester City, who get to play against Tottenham (two matches in the Champions League and one in the Premier League), as well as against their city rival, Man United, at the Old Trafford. What all this means is that Liverpool have a really good chance to win the Premiership. And in order not to blow it, they need to beat Southampton on Friday. Will they do it?

Southampton vs Liverpool Prediction

It’s true that they’re pretty close to the relegation zone, but Southampton should not worry too much about their Premier League future. The thing is that they have a couple of games till the end of the season, in which they can get themselves some points. The game against already-relegated Huddersfield in the last round is definitely one of those.

But, the game against Liverpool isn’t. I’m 100% sure the Reds will win this, but Southampton could put away at least a goal. After all, they did it against Tottenham and Man United last month.
