Saints are looking to break their 103 year old record of 20 games undefeated. A share of the spoils or a victory is all they will be looking for, and given that the previous meeting ended five-nil, the chances of them conquering the fort are high.
Swansea will not be taking it straight up like the last time though. They haven’t lost a match since facing the humiliating defeat to their upcoming guests. They will be looking for a revenge.
Considering recent meetings and the form picking up for Swansea City too, goals are going to be plenty. Across three of their last meetings, 4.6 goals per match has been the average.
Even if Swansea were to park the bus or Southampton going for a safer result of draw to secure the record, goals over 2.5 is a very realistic choice to bet on.
Saints have been solid all throughout the game. Interestingly, they haven’t trailed behind the opponents in the previous seven games at all. This makes Saints winning at half-time and full-time a great deal to consider.
Swansea might not be the favorites but they are definitely favorites to score, at the very least. They have scored in each of their last 4 games.
Jerry Yates and Jamal Lowe are in scoring form right now, with 7 and 6 goals for the season, respectively. Trying your hand in the both teams to score pot is looking very viable.
Going for a score prediction, we are guessing that the Saints will have the record looming over their head while entering the field. That might make them play conservative and even settle for a draw.
With both teams looking ripe to put goals past the post, a 2-2 tie is where we draw the line. This score prediction might be on the risky end so if you would like a safer bet, both teams to score sounds like a perfect choice.
