Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: St. Mary’s Stadium (Southampton).
Southampton has started the new season of the EPL with a loss, but it will not affect their result here at St. Mary’s stadium when facing a championship side.
Brentford struggled in the 1/64 finals to win against Wycombe after their full-time resulted in a draw. It was the penalty shootout that determined the winner in that clash.
Southampton vs Brentford Head-to-head (h2h)
- The host has recorded two of the three overall wins.
- Their previous encounter gave a 0-3 away win for Saints.
- Four of their six fixtures have seen both teams score.
- Half of their matches since 2005 have ended in a draw.
- The host is still winless at home in their three clashes (2D 1L).
Southampton vs Brentford Prediction
With more chance of making it into the 1/16 finals, the host will aim to work on their ground advantage. They will host after a 1-0 loss on the road against Crystal Palace in the opening EPL fixture.
Their away form is questionable and along with their league inferiority, the Bees will not pose much threat to the host. They will visit after a 1-0 loss on the road against Birmingham in the opening Championship game.
It is highly probable in the game that the home team will win either half of the ninety minutes at St. Mary’s Stadium. With their league supremacy and overall form, the Saints are likely to start well in the clash and probably draw the first blood in the fixture.
The reason to back this is their h2h history in which the recent two clashes have seen no BTTS, and only the victor scoring goals in the match.
Since the host is the favorites to win, backing them for the above-mentioned bets along with the home win in full-time will probably yield decent returns from the encounter.
