West Brom vs Southampton – FA Cup: This Saturday afternoon at the Hawthorns, West Brom hosts Southampton
On a match counting towards the FA Cup’s 8th finals.
West Brom is currently in last place of the Premier League with 20 points conquered, with 3 victories, 11 draws and 13 losses. So far, the Baggies count with 21 goals scored and 40 goals conceded, which results on an average of 2.3 goals per match.
Their home record has been obviously poor; with the team only recording 2 losses on the 13 rounds they’ve played at the Hawthorns.
The team led by Alan Pardew is going through a bad moment of form, with 3 losses on the last 3 matches they’ve played. On the previous rounds of this FA Cup, West Brom has eliminated Exeter (2-0) and Liverpool (3-2).
Southampton occupies the 18th place of the Premier League with 26 points conquered, thanks to 5 victories, 11 draws and 11 losses.
When it comes to goals, the Saints count with 28 goals scored and 40 goals conceded, presenting an average of 2.5 goals per match.
Their away record hasn’t been impressive, since they’ve only gotten 2 wins on the 11 away matches they’ve played in the Premier League.
After a streak of 6 unbeaten matches, the team led by Pellegrino was beaten on the last round against Liverpool.
On the previous rounds of this competition, Southampton has eliminated Watford (1-0) and Fulham (1-0).
The truth is that, even presenting a weak home record, West Brom has been managing to show arguments on the finishing chapter.
At the Hawthorns, the Baggies have already scored against teams like Manchester City (twice), Manchester United, Arsenal and inclusively Southampton.
West Brom vs Southampton – Betting Tip and Prediction:
On the other hand, we have Saints that, on the 13 rounds they’ve already played away from home, were able to score in 10 of them, having only failed to score on the visits to Chelsea, Liverpool and Huddersfield.
That way, and considering that both teams are on a delicate position in the Premier League, I believe that their approach on this FA Cup will be less cautious and we might see goals from both sides.
