On Tuesday, May 11, in the missed match of the 32nd round of the English Premier League, Southampton will host Crystal Palace – we offer our forecast for this meeting.
Southampton continue their unsuccessful streak in the national championship. In the last round, Ralph Hasenhüttl’s team unsuccessfully went to visit Liverpool, losing to the Liverpool team with a score of 0: 2. For the “saints” this defeat was already the third in the four previous rounds. Also during this period, Southampton managed to lose to West Bromwich (0: 3) and Tottenham (1: 2), and the team played in a draw with Leicester (1: 1). In general, the second circle of the “saints” looks just awful. They lost thirteen of 17 matches in the second half of the championship.
Despite such a disastrous game, which was due to serious staffing situations, the accumulated points reserve in the first round was enough not to fall into the relegation zone. At the moment, Soton is in 16th place in the Premier League standings and is ten points ahead of the group of outsiders.
I must say that “Soton” can be called a home team, because the team earned the lion’s share of points just in their home arena. Out of a total of 37 points – 21 points are accounted for just at home meetings. In all, Southampton lost seven times in 16 home games, won six and drew three times.
The participation of striker Danny Ings and midfielder Oriol Romeu is still in question. Defender Ryan Bertrand and midfielder William Smallbone will definitely not play due to injuries.
The Glaziers have been going with the flow in the current championship of England for a long time. The team has not set serious goals for itself for the next season, but successfully copes with the task of maintaining a residence permit. Before the upcoming meeting, Crystal Palace is thirteenth in the standings. The London club has 41 points, which is 14 points more than the outsider group.
In the final round, Roy Hodgson’s side played away against Sheffield United and defeated the underdog 2-0. Thus, “Crystal Palace” interrupted their streak without victories from four matches in a row. During this period, the Glaziers scored a draw with Everton (1: 1), the field of which lost to Chelsea (1: 4), Leicester (1: 2) and Manchester City (0: 2).
On the road, Roy Hodgson’s wards surprised in the current championship only with a victory over Manchester United, after which they beat only opponents from the bottom of the standings for 16 matches – Fulham, Brighton, West Bromwich, Newcastle and Sheffield United “.
Midfielders Nathan Ferguson and James MacArthur, defender Mamadou Sako and striker Connor Wickham will not play due to injuries. Questionable James Tomkins.
Both teams have long since lost their motivation. However, “Soton” lost in the first round to the “glaziers” 0: 1 and will yearn for revenge. Moreover, the team, and so in the current championship, did not particularly delight its fans with victories.
Our prediction is Southampton’s win for 2.15 in 1xBet.
In attack, both teams are not impressive, only occasionally giving out a productive game. Head-to-head fights are also not too happy with goals – in the last five more than two goals have not been scored.
Second bet – total under 2.5 goals per 1.91.
