Who will win the match between Southampton vs Grimsby?
Southampton are in need of a confidence-boosting win, considering their struggles in the English top flight. And it is in their best interest that they are pitted against Grimsby – who are part of the fourth division.
Not only are the latter much inferior in terms of talent and experience – but to make matters even difficult for them, they have a poor h2h record against this rival.
In addition, the guests of the day have been a mess on the road for the last several months as well.
Confidently expect Southampton to be the better team on the pitch this Wednesday.
How many goals can be expected?
Southampton scored two or more goals in four of the last six h2h encounters, and in three of these games they found the back of the net four or more times. Considering the huge difference in talent between the two teams, expect the hosts to slot in goals in plenty this game week.
Will Both Teams Score in the match?
Grimsby failed to find the back of the net in two of their last three fixtures, and they won just thrice on the road in the past five months. It is doubtful if they would be able to find the back of the net against a team from the top flight.
Southampton vs Grimsby Prediction
Southampton are high in confidence after their recent win over two-time European champions Chelsea, and now they are trying to build some momentum with another win. They need to deal with their upcoming relegation fight.
And on that account, this upcoming fixture is an opportunity. Not only are Grimsby from the fourth division, but they are also struggling on the road, and have a worrying h2h record against this rival.
Likely, a -1.5 Asian Handicap on Southampton would be a good pick at 1.95.
Going on, Grimsby conceded two or more goals in four of the past six h2h clashes, and four or more goals in three of these games. And with them struggling with defense lately, the hosts can be counted upon to score in plenty.
As such, Over 2.5 Team Goals by Southampton appears to be a decent pick at 2.10 odd.
