Liverpool vs Southampton: Prediction and Betting Tips
Liverpool chasing a top-four finish
Liverpool fans never thought their team would be fighting for a Champions League spot and be at seventh place before five matches of the end of the season. After a horrible spell that lasted from the start of February until mid-March in which Liverpool lost six of their seven matches, The Reds slipped down the table and are now battling for a top-four finish.
After mid-March though, Jurgen Klopp’s team collected 11 points from their last five matches. Liverpool’s last match against Manchester United was postponed due to protests by United fans. The Reds can’t afford to lose any more points as a Champions League spot finish is their priority and is the least expected consolation for otherwise a mediocre season by the Merseysiders.
Southampton looking for a positive finish to their campaign
Southampton’s season can be divided into two parts. The first part in which they were in the top half of the table losing just four games in 14 matches and winning seven. The second part of the season started mid-January until now in which The Saints suffered 12 defeats in 16 matches with just two wins. This drop in form saw the team slip to the bottom six and are now ten points away from the relegation zone with five matches still to play.
Ralph Hasenhuttl knows his team will not be relegated but he prefers his team to have a good finish to the season and grab as many points as possible in their remaining Premier League matches. Drawing in the last game against Leicester is considered to be a good result. Southampton went ahead in the match but couldn’t hold onto their lead as they have done in their last two matches now.
- Liverpool’s last nine matches ended in under 3.5 goals
- Southampton’s six of last eight matches ended in under 3.5 goals
- 70% of Liverpool matches ended in under 3.5 goals
- 73% of Southampton’s matches ended in under 3.5 goals
Liverpool vs Southampton Prediction
It is a very important match for Liverpool as the season is coming to its end and with just five matches for the Reds to play, they have seven points to cover to reach the top four and it is not an easy task. Liverpool’s recent games have not seen too many goals and we expect this match to be a low-scoring game as well.
The Bookies are paying 1.61 for under 3.5 goals which is a very good price for a very probable outcome of this match as we can see from the stats. We think it is a good chance to win this bet. For our second prediction, we think both teams will score in this match as both of their defenses have been conceding in recent matches.
