Southampton vs Stoke – Premier League : In one of the several matches taking place in the afternoon this Saturday, in England
Counting towards the Premier League’s 29th round
The local side Southampton and the visiting side Stoke City face off at the St. Mary’s Stadium, with the two teams meeting for the 2nd time this season, after their previous encounter having finished with a 2-1 win for Stoke City, at home.
The side led by Mauricio Pellegrino is making a campaign well below the expectations so far, one of the worst ones since the team was promoted to the Premier League a couple of years ago,
being only in the fight to avoid relegation, with some difficulties, and having one of the worst offensive records of the competition.
The team is coming off a recent streak of results with some alternation, having experienced all of the 3 possible results on their last 3 matches, although it is also worth noting that, overall, they only have 1 loss in this year of 2018 so far.
As for the visitors, they are making their worst campaign in the Premier League in a lot of years, being one of the main relegation contenders this season,
such is their recent inconsistency and inability, or so it seems, to counter their poor period, something that wasn’t reversed with the arrival of Paul Lambert.
Stoke is, this way, coming off a not very recommendable moment of form, being winless for 4 matches, not being able to beat direct opponents on the fight to avoid relegation and still not showing great offensive ability on this streak.
Southampton vs Stoke – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Between two teams that seem to be two of the worst in terms of offensive ability and, therefore, in terms of managing to score goals,
so I believe this match will be the perfect example of that, and, therefore, we will have, I fancy, a match without many goals, if any at all.
|Under 2.5 goals||
