Tottenham vs Southampton: Prediction and Betting Tips
Tottenham looking for a new era after Mourinho
Tottenham reacted to their 2-2 draw with Everton in their last match by dismissing Jose Mourinho whose 17 months and 86 match reign came to an end after a run of just one win in their last six games which hurt their chances of finishing in a Champions League spot. Spurs have lost 20 points from winning positions in matches, that is the most in the Premier League.
Home games of Tottenham have seen a lot of goals in recent matches with four or more goals scored in each of the last three games. Even though Spurs have some of the best attackers in Europe, they have suffered from their defense. Conceding two or more goals in four of their last five games has not helped Tottenham with their current form that cost Mourinho his job.
Southampton need to bounce back
This could be another high-scoring encounter as Southampton have conceded 2+ goals in the first half of three of their last four matches and they couldn’t keep a clean sheet in their H2H away games with Tottenham since 2001. The Saints are nine points above the relegation zone and with six games to be played, they need to play to gather points.
In every away game that Southampton played this year, the side that scored first in the match have prevailed. Coach Ralph Hasenhuttl also has defensive problems with his side having conceded 12 goals in four matches although they have been better on the offensive third scoring six times in four matches.
- Tottenham have four clean sheets in the last six matches
- Tottenham have won four of their last six home matches
- Southampton have lost seven of their last eight away matches
- Southampton have failed to score in four of their last seven away matches
Tottenham vs Southampton Prediction
As we look at their stats and recent matches, it is obvious to expect a high-scoring game. Neither team have kept many clean sheets before this game and with the scoring record of both teams as well, we believe we might see some goals in this one and it’s a good bet to back over 2.5 goals with the bookies paying 1.73.
