The two teams could have easily swapped roles in the finish of the previous campaign as the Saints barely managed to save the top flight status, while the Rams fell 2-1 on aggregate to latter winners Fulham in the Championship’s promotional play-offs.

Both teams have already been in action in the off-season and both were part of some high-scoring thrillers along the way.

The new Derby County manager, Frank Lampard, will obviously have a lot of work to do on fixing defensive holes as the Rams shipped as many as three goals in a disappointing defeat to lower-division Mansfield Town on Wednesday.

Derby County vs Southampton: Head-to-head

The two teams did not have the chance to play each other ever since the 20111/12 Championship campaign.

Overall, it’s Derby County who own a much better head to head record as they lead the tie by ten wins ahead of the 45th encounter with the Saints.

Interestingly, Southampton won only 2 of 22 away games against the Rams.

The Saints won two and drew two of last four meetings with Derby County.

Derby County vs Southampton: Prediction

Southampton’s strikers will certainly fancy their chances to keep the good off-season form going against the vulnerable defensive line of Derby’s here.

Manolo Gabbiadini, Sam Gallagher and Nathan Redmond were all on target in a 2-3 win over Jiansgsu Suning in mid-week. Winger Redmond scored a goal in a 3-3 draw to German Schalke last weekend as well.

Based on what we saw in the previous action these two teams had in the off-season, Southampton head into this as pretty clear favourites to snatch the victory.

The Saints to win is our top betting option, while you can obviously go for three or more goals in the match given that both teams proved out to be fairly easy to break down lately.

Braver tipsters will fancy Southampton to win with both teams scoring.
