Southampton vs Burnley Match preview

Southampton’s 4-0 defeat last time out against Liverpool was their fifth consecutive Premier League match without a draw. However, with their current form, the host will be closer to sharing the spoils yet again.

In a similar record, Burnley hasn’t drawn any of their last eight PL away matches. It is to be noted that, Burnley has the same number of points as Southampton and an identical record in the league table.

The host has lost three of their last ten matches in all major contests. Southampton has not been without a home win for too long. The 2-0 win over Huddersfield in the FA Cup, at the start of January this year, was their previous home win.

In the same week, the Saints did defeat Tottenham at home in the Premier League. Two of their recent three losses were on the road, so they have hope in playing at home.

Meanwhile, Burnley is on a three-match unbeaten PL run following a goalless draw with Arsenal in their prior clash. With nine clean sheets this season in the campaign, Burnley acquires a more defensive style game.

In sharp contrast, Southampton likes more to play an attacking style in their matches. The Saints have scored 31 goals in 25 appearances. But their all-out attack has opened their defensive line as they hold only five clean sheets in the league.

Southampton vs Burnley Prediction

Southampton and Burnley have marked three of their last four h2h clashes as a draw. This opens the door for a chance of the teams sharing the spoils in the match.

From the stats, it is more likely that the match will end probably in a draw. Since the host is the worst team at home in the campaign this season, we cannot count on them to win. For the punters, the safest bet will be a BTTS in the game.

Furthermore, Southampton’s Danny Ings, who has netted 17 goals in all competitions so far this season, will be the one to look out for in the match. He has found the net this season in 12 of the 13 league appearances.

On the other hand, Chris Wood, who has scored three goals across his last five outings, will be Burnley’s best hope in the clash to find the back of the net.

As such, the punters can go with the home team striker, Danny Ings, to find the back of the net in ninety minutes.
