Southampton vs Leicester: Prediction and Betting Tips

19:00, Apr 30 2021
Southampton vs Leicester prediction for Friday’s Premier League round 34 clash at St. Mary’s Stadium in Southampton. After two consecutive defeats, Southampton dropped back to the 15th position on the Premier League table as they host third-placed Leicester. Read along for our free prediction and betting tips.

Southampton looking for their first win in two matches

After topping the Premier League table back in November, Southampton had a bad run since then and only bottom-placed Sheffield United have gathered fewer points than their 20. Despite their last defeat at Tottenham, they are still nine points ahead of the relegation zone and need to grab some points in their remaining five matches.

The Saints’ home form is marginally better than their away form 20-16 wins. Their last home win against Burnley in which they had to come from two goals down to win 3-2, was their first after five home games without a win. That game against Burnley was the fourth time in six matches that marked the team that scores first at St. Mary’s, fails to win!

Leicester to hold on to their third spot

The Foxes also came from behind to win against Crystal Palace in their last match. Brendan Rogers’ team are sitting comfortably at the third position but with their last three matches being against Manchester United, Chelsea, and Tottenham, they would want to secure the third spot quickly.

Being the third best away team this season, Leicester have earned more points on the road than at home (34-28). They have won their last three matches here including the famous 9-0 thrashing of last season. They lost their last away match to West Ham but that was their only second away defeat of the season.

Key Stats

  • Southampton have won one of their last nine home matches
  • Both teams have scored in Southampton’s 47% of home matches
  • Both teams have scored in Southampton’s four of their last five games
  • Leicester have just two away defeats in 12 away matches

Southampton vs Leicester Prediction

Southampton have been scoring almost regularly this season. They failed to score in just one of their last six games. Over 2.5 goals have been scored in 50% of their matches.

Leicester have scored in nine of their last ten matches and as we have seen in their stats, a large number of their games have seen both teams score.
