Southampton play against Arsenal on 16 April. The match will be played in round 33 of the English Championship. Both teams are extremely motivated. It will be an exciting matchup to watch! Full statistics and all current odds for the match can be viewed at 1xbet download.
On the last matchday, Southampton got the better of Chelsea. On home soil, the team was demolished 0-6. Ralph Hasenhüttl’s side remain winless. The unlucky streak has now lasted for five rounds (4 “loos” and 1 draw). During this period, the team scored only 3 goals and conceded 15.
Southampton dropped to 13th position in the standings. After 31 games, they have 36 points on their books. The gap from the bottom three is 12 points. Therefore, there’s no need to worry about staying in the top flight.
The Saints’ home statistics are still acceptable: 5 wins, 7 draws and 4 defeats. Goals scored and conceded – 20 each. It is noteworthy that a total of less than 2.5 has been recorded in 10 meetings.
A few rounds ago, Arsenal were considered the main contender for 4th place in the standings. But 1 win in the last 4 rounds, as well as the excellent form of Tottenham have changed a lot. Today, it is the Spurs who are in 4th position in the table, while the Canaries are only fifth, with 54 points on their books. The gap from the top 4 is 3 points. Yes, Arteta’s charges still have a game in reserve, but it’s not certain that they will earn 3 points.
I don’t believe the Londoners will end up in 4th position. They have very difficult opponents in the remaining 8 meetings. They will be facing Tottenham, Man Utd, Newcastle, West Ham, Leeds, Everton and Chelsea. I’m sure none of them will give up points for nothing.
A few words about the team’s performance away: 7 wins, 1 draw and 6 defeats. 20 goals scored and 22 conceded.

Southampton vs Arsenal forecast and betting. Outcome with cf. 1,80
Southampton are on the back of weak results. But on their own wards Hazenhüttl perform quite well (22 points earned in 16 games) Assuming that on the field they will come out as highly motivated, because it is time to interrupt the series without victories. Their opponent is tough, but now the Canaries seem to be mentally broken. And if they lose this weekend, there’s a 90% chance they won’t be able to finish in the top four.
My prediction. The optimal bet here is, it seems to me, “both to score – yes”.
