Southampton vs Leicester: 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.
- 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
- Both teams have scored in Leicester’s 67% away matches
- Both teams have scored in Leicester’s seven of ten games
