Forecast and betting for Tottenham v Southampton, stats, odds. In the championship match in England on February 9, “Spurs” will play against the unstoppable “Saints”. Who will be the winner in this match?
Tottenham are having a difficult time. This season, the team has struggled to clinch a place in the Conference League, where they didn’t even make the playoffs in the end. The culprit was not the team’s play, but the rampant coronavirus, which came to the team at the most inopportune time.
The team had a good start in the League Cup, where Spurs made it to the semi-finals, but were unlucky with the opponents – Chelsea were stronger at this stage. However, there is still hope for success in the FA Cup, where there are already two stages behind them.
In the Premier League, they are seventh in the table after 20 games, just two points adrift of the Champions League clubhouse. Antonio Conte’s charges beat Watford 1-0, Leicester 3-2 and once again lost to Chelsea 0-2 in January.
Tanganga, Skipp and Dyer, who has a thigh injury, cannot play today.
Just four years ago, Southampton won the FA Cup, after which the team have not been seen or heard from since. An FA Cup start this year brought a victory over a difficult Swansea City (3-2 d.w.), followed by Ralph Hasenhüttl’s side reaching the 1/8 final with a 2-1 extra-time win over lowly Coventry City.
In the Premier League tournament, the Saints occupy their usual mid-table position. In 22 rounds, the Red and Whites have recorded five wins and 10 draws, yielding 25 points and 12th position. However, a win in this game would allow the team to move up to tenth position.
The Saints opened the calendar year in January with a 4-1 victory over Brentford, before losing to Wolverhampton FC (1-3) and sharing points with Manchester City (1-1).
Lanco, Macarthy, Tella, Smolbon and Broja, who has a knee injury, cannot play today.
A tough test awaits the hosts in this match – Southampton are a strong mid-table side in the Premier League and can spoil the mood of any club, which has already proved in the last round. Nevertheless, we think Spurs look more creative on all fronts today.
What’s more, the team is playing in the home arena, which will be an added advantage for London. We expect Hotspurs to win due to the class of the players and huge motivation, because a win can bring the fourth position.
Our prediction is an Asian handicap (-1) on Tottenham and we’ll bet on it at 1xbet mobile android with odds of 2.10
There are losses in the visitors’ line-up that could make themselves felt. What’s more, Spurs have beaten the resilient Saints in 3 of their last 4 head-to-head games and we expect that to be the case tonight, and by a comfortable margin of two goals.
Second bet – Tottenham win by two goals for 4.80
