Fulham vs Southampton
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 24 November 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Craven Cottage (London).
Fulham is returning to home after 2 consecutive away matches, to face another struggling team, Southampton on this Saturday.
The home side is down and out of the league already. They have lost 11 games and have only 1 win in their 12 matches, pushing them to the bottom of the table.
They do not have a win in the last 9 league matches which includes 7 defeats. They have the worst defense in the competition conceding a whopping 31 goals already while scoring 11 only.
The Cottagers are currently on a 6 game losing streak in the League which justifies their position in the table. They will have to work much harder to at least get a point against the visitors on Saturday.
The Whites are also winless in the last 3 games at home. For a team which secured promotion from the Championship through playoffs, this is the worst possible start to a new season. In the last 6 matches, they took part in over 2.5 goals came in 3 and they only found the net 3 times.
The Saints are also at the bottom of the table, 17th to be exact, just above the relegation zone. From the 12 matches they played, 8 were lost and only 2 was won. They are one of the low scoring sides in the league this year, with just 8 goals until now. But 21 goals have been conceded on the contrary.
The team from Hampshire will have to improve their defense considering upcoming matches against top sides. In the last 6 games, they are winless and has 2 losses in it. Both the teams found the net in 3 of those 6 matches. This includes a 6-1 away to reigning champions Manchester City.
There is nothing much to differentiate between these two teams. But Fulham will not be favorites to get a win at home on Saturday. It might also be a draw like the last 2 h2h matches.
Fulham vs Southampton: Head-to-head (h2h)
- In the last 6 h2h games Southampton has won 3 and Fulham are without a win.
- Over 2.5 goals were scored in 3 of those 6 matches.
- At the home of Fulham, both the teams have 2 wins each in the last 6 matches.
- Last 2 matches held at this ground was won by the visitors.
Fulham vs Southampton: Prediction
The recent 2 home h2h matches were won by the hosts. But with their current form in the league, Fulham is not equipped mentally or tactically to beat the Saints. Southampton themselves are struggling to win lately, with a 5 match winless streak. But they have better results in their recent away matches than the hosts. So we can bet on an away win with 2.00 odd.
The home side and the visitors both are poor in defense, with 31 and 21 goals conceded respectively. But they are also struggling to score as well. So we can expect goals if the attackers make use of their chances and see a game with over 2.5 goals too. So a bet can be placed on a score of over 2.5 goals with 1.95 odd.
Fulham vs Southampton: Betting Tips
Away win @ 2.00 (1/1).
Over 2.5 goals @ 1.95 (10/11).
