Southampton vs Burnley: Will there be a winner?
Southampton - Burnley. Prediction for the English Premier League match (April 4, 2021)
There will be a meeting of the 30th round of the English championship on Sunday April 4, in which "Southampton" will host "Burnley" - we have prepared a forecast.
Before the break for us, "Southampton" looked pretty pale in recent rounds. In the previous match of the English Championship, Ralph Hasenhüttl's charges suffered another defeat, losing to "Brighton" this time at their home arena with a score of 1:2. This defeat was the tenth for the "Saints" in the last 12 matches in the championship.
In just two matches during this period, "Soton" scored points, and only in a duel with "Sheffield United" did he manage to achieve victory. In another successful match, the "Saints" drew with "Chelsea" at home (1:1). In general, "Southampton" cannot win for the last five matches in a row at home. In addition to a draw with the "Retirees", Ralf Hasenhüttl's charges lost to "Arsenal" (1:3), "Aston Villa" (0:1), "Wolverhampton" (1:2) and "Brighton" (1:2).
Midfielders Oriol Romeu and William Smallbone will not play for the hosts due to injuries. Questionable striker Michael Obafemi.
Upcoming Predictions for Football
The "Burgundy" are next to their rivals in the standings, in 15th place, behind the "Saints" only by the difference between goals scored and conceded. Compared to "Southampton", "Burnley" is much more confident in defense, as evidenced by 37 goals conceded, but the attack is much worse. Sean Ditch's team scored only 22 goals in 29 matches.
In the last stretch of the season, "Burnley" proved to be a very uncompromising team. In the eight previous rounds, the "Burgundy" lost only once - "Tottenham" (0:4), beat "Crystal Palace" (3:0) and "Burnley" (2:1), and also finished five meetings in a draw.
Only defender Kevin Long will definitely not play in the match due to injury. Charlie Taylor, Robbie Brady, Ashley Barnes and Jack Cork are also injured, their participation in the match is in question.
- "Southampton" have scored no more than one goal in their last eight home games in the Premier League.
- Only one side have scored in 11 of "Burnley's" last 12 away games in the Premier League.
- "Southampton" have beaten "Burnley" in four of their last seven head-to-head matches.
"Southampton" have not won in their last five home games, so the team will be motivated, especially since in terms of the tournament this is a principled match. The "Saints" look better in attack, and the break for the national teams' matches allowed the hosts to take a breath and improve matters in defense.
Our prediction is a "Southampton's" victory with the odds of 2.15 on 1xbet.
