- Title : Sport Betting Tip: Southampton have failed to score in 5 of their last 7 matches
High flying Manchester United (2nd) have surprisingly failed to win in their last two games (Sheffield United and Arsenal), welcome Southampton who have also gone a few games without a win (three on the road). This pits two sides together who enjoy playing with more possession, United average 55.30% vs. Southampton's 54.11%. United actually average more shots on goal (5.10 vs. 3.22) and they concede far fewer shots on target per game (3.70 vs, 4.78). What gives Southampton the edge are the conversion rates at both ends, they convert 41.38% of their shots on target to Man Utd's 25.49%, and they concede at just 27.91% vs. the home side's 40.54%. Expect the home side to have more shots, but expect the Saints to put away their chances at a better rate. Going for the draw @ 4.75 as I expect both side's styles to cancel each other out. 1-1?
very much worth a dabble seeing that in all of the last five meetings at any venue have seen both teams scoring, and both teams are averaging more than a goal scored per match and a goal conceded per match. Both teams scored in all of the last five meetings between United and Southampton. In four of those games both sides scored at least twice.
Manchester United have lost their league lead in the last two rounds and have been overtaken by Manchester City. With one match more played, Manchester United is in second place and has 3 points up to its little brother. It has not yet been decided, but for Manchester United to be involved in a fight for a Premier League title, it is only a victory that counts in the next match against Southampton.
After playing dazzling football, Manchester United fell very surprisingly against the league's worst team, table-toppers Sheffield United, at home by 1-2. In the next match, they went to London and played goalless against Arsenal. Manchester United is one of the teams that has scored the most goals after Liverpool, so this offense must continue to deliver.
It should go well against an injured team like Southampton. Southampton, who park in the middle of the table, have 3 straight losses behind them. The losses have come against Leicester, Arsenal and most recently Aston Villa, where Southampton have only managed to net once against these 3 teams. Still, the biggest concern is the injury list, where 3 players went out injured last time, in the form of Oriol Romeu, Ibrahima Diallo and Theo Walcott. We already find names like Kyle Walker-Peters, Nathan Tella, Mohammed Salisu, Michael Obafemi, Jannik Vestergaard and William Smallbone on the injury list. There are major setbacks in the team that indicate that Southampton are well on their way to a 4th straight cod in the league. I think this game will go Under 3 goals, money back if we got 3 goals.
|Prediction||Under 3 goals Asian Line|
