Southampton vs Burnley
English Premier League
Date: Sunday, 4th April 2021
Kick off at 12:00 UK/ 13:00 CET
Venue: St. Mary’s Stadium.
Here we have two teams that have underwhelmed this season but could be safe and both have 33 points coming into this game and are seven points clear of the drop.
Southampton have had a poor second half to the campaign and have lost 4 of their last five games. Their last game before the break finished in a 2-1 defeat at home to Brighton who are below them.
The one bright moment for the Saints recently is that they reached the semi-finals of the FA Cup where they will place Leicester.
Burnley are in better form and have lost just once in their past five games. They beat Everton 2-1 in their last match. Away from home it is only 4 wins so far, although form has improved and 3 of those wins have come in the past five away games.
Southampton vs Burnley: Head to Head
- Last season Burnley won this game 2-1.
- Earlier in the season in the reverse fixture Southampton won 1-0.
- There is a 70% chance to see under 2.5 goals.
Southampton vs Burnley: Prediction
This feels like the game for either side where a win could more than likely confirm their status for next season, that’s it Fulham lose again. Of course maths wise Fulham have plenty of chances to make the points up but still one of these teams could go 10 points clear of the bottom three and that is huge motivation.
At the same time the losers could still be facing a battle on their hands to stay in the Premier League and one has to presume this could be a very close game. Traditionally there are not many goals in this fixture and we think a draw could be on the cards.
Backing the draw is normally risky for full time so we will back under goals and also back the draw to come in for half time, in a game that looks like being a close and tense affair.
Southampton vs Burnley: Bet Tips:
Under 2.5 goals at 1.62 (8/13)
Half Time Result: Draw at 2.00 (1/1)
