Southampton – Burnley
Southampton hosts Burnley in a match from the 11th round of the English Premier League. We will examine this match and offer you our soccer betting predictions for today for it.
Southampton are moving as a decent team in the Premier League this season. Under the guidance of their new manager Mauricio Pelegrino, The Saints are currently 10th in the league standings with 13 points won so far. Their record so far is three wins, four draws and three losses.
They have won just one in the last five rounds – against West Bromwich Albion, but they are also unbeaten in their last three games. This is the type of consistency they would look for in the next weeks and months as well. They may not win every game, but they are hardly losing any. This should be enough for them to reach survival this season.
Burnley on the other hand are doing even a better job. They are currently 7th in the Premier League, having won 16 points so far. In their last game they enjoyed their 4th win since the start of the season, beating Newcastle United at home.
This is an interesting clash, because both teams look pretty much even in terms of their ability. Yes – Burnley have more points and a better position in the standings, but Southampton have the home ground advantage and a nice streak of consecutive matches being unbeaten.
Let’s take a look at the team news before the game.
Southampton can’t use the injured Mario Lemina, while Charlie Austin, Jeremy Pied and Matthew Robert Targett are doubtful for The Saints.
Burnley will be without the injured Jonathan Walters and Tom Heaton, while Chris Wood is doubtful with a hamstring injury.
