Burnley vs Southampton Predictions and Match Preview

Burnley vs Southampton
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 2nd February 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Turf Moor (Burnley).

Something must have clicked within both these teams because for the last whole month, these two have been churning good results one after the other. This follows what was quite easily a horror-show of a season before December.

Currently, both grace the two spots just above the relegation cut-off, and being direct competitors, a loss in this game will have far-fetching effects. It would be in the best interest of either, to concentrate in this tie and come out unscathed.

The momentum is definitely with the Clarets, owing to the support of their home crowd, and the comparatively better results they have had in the past weeks. Another factor going in their favor is the h2h stats, which skews in the hosts’ direction.

Burnley vs Southampton Prediction

With almost similar form in the recent weeks, the Clarets hold the upper hand, owing to playing in front of their fans. A win in this game would definitely provide them a cushion to fall back on, in case of some mishaps in the upcoming match-days. The team will definitely gather strength from the fact that, for more than twelve years, they have protected the honor of their flag at this stadium, against the Saints.

The hosts for this tie won their last three home-fixtures in a row and remained unbeaten in six of their last seven overall games. They also managed to score in their last seven attempts at home.

Conversely, Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men failed to score in two of their last five away trips, and in two of their last three visits to Burnley.

These observations point to the conclusion that the hosts will, in all probability, avoid a loss, and win at least one of the halves.
