Southampton vs Leeds United: Prediction and Betting Tips
Southampton hoping for a better finish
The Saints are looking to finish with a flourish as they have scored 3 or more goals in two consecutive matches for the first time since December 2018. Those two wins were also their first back-to-back wins in the Premier League since December 2020. Before their last two wins, Southampton had lost five of their last seven games.
Ralph Hasenhuttl will be happy that his team found the form they had started at the beginning of the season back. Southampton are on their best home form since the 2018/19 season with a four-match unbeaten run. The Saints have scored in 11 of their 12 competitive home games in 2021. Yet they have won just one of the five matches in which they opened the scoring in that run.
Leeds having a great end of season
Leeds United still have a chance of making a top-seven finish thanks to a run of one defeat in nine Premier League matches. A win at St. Mary’s would see them record their third consecutive win this season for only the second time. The newly-promoted Leeds are having a great season as they look forward to a strong finish to their season.
Marcelo Bielsa’s team are the only Premier League team without an away draw. They won nine and lost nine on the road. The scorer of the first goal should be key in this match as the side opening the score in Leeds’ last seven away matches went on to win the game.
- Two or more goals have been scored in Southampton’s last seven home games
- Two or more goals have been scored in Leeds’ last five away matches
- Over 2.5 goals have been scored in Southampton’s 50% home matches
- 72% of Leeds’ away matches saw over 2.5 goals
Southampton vs Leeds United Prediction
Both of these teams are having a good end of season form winning their last two matches and having both teams score in those matches and also four goals have been scored in both teams’ last two matches.
Looking at their stats, it is clear to see that this match might be a high-scoring one. Leeds are chasing a win to prove they are worthy of another season in the Premier League. While Southampton are looking for a win to finish strongly in a season they think they deserved more.
We predict a high-scoring game for our first prediction with action and goals at both ends of the field.
