Crystal Palace vs Southampton Prediction, Tips and Match Preview of the English Premier League match on Saturday, 12 September 2020. Scheduled kick-off 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET at the Selhurst Park (London).
The Eagles had started strong the last season, but towards the end of the campaign they resembled the plight of a relegation-threatened squad.
In fact, they were even struggling to deliver one satisfactory performance in the final phase of 2019-20, and the sole reason they were not in a battle to avoid relegation, was due to the points they had accumulated earlier.
Meanwhile, almost exactly opposite is the case of the Saints. They were expected to finish in the bottom tier of the table judging their earlier games, and they were even humbled 0-9 at home by Leicester.
However, like many a great club, they dusted themselves and got back to their feet. They once again started to perform, and towards the end of the season, they even made a push for a Europa ticket.
If they had been a bit better in the first half of their campaign, fans could have witnessed them taking part in continental fixtures – and this is exactly what their agenda would be for the coming period.
Considering the recent form of the Saints, the struggles of the Eagles, and the h2h domination of the former in the past few years, expect a strong Southampton display this weekend.
Head-to-head (h2h) & Previous Meetings
- The last time these two met on the pitch, Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men recorded a 0-2 win on the road.
- They had also registered 12 of the preceding 17 overall wins.
- In fact, they have lost just once in the past four years.
- At this stadium, the guests are on a three-match winning run.
- The hosts have not scored a single goal at this ground since 2016.
Crystal Palace vs Southampton: Prediction
Roy Hodgson’s men are on eight-game winless run, of which seven fixtures had ended in losses. In the process, they had conceded two or more goals in six of these eight match-ups, while failing to score in the same number of games.
Going on, all through the last season, the team could secure wins at home just exclusively against relegation-battlers.
On the other hand, their opposite number are on a seven-match unbeaten run, and this run even included the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City, Everton etc. Going on, they are also on an invincible run on the road in their past five games.
In addition, they also do have a magnificent h2h record against this rival, and particularly in the recent years at this venue.
Moreover, after the spectacular season Danny Ings has had, he’s determined to lead his team to glory this time around.
By the looks of things, expect Southampton to be the better team on the pitch this Saturday.
Draw No Bet: Southampton @ 1.70 (7/10)
Southampton to Win Either Half @ 1.75 (3/4).
