Southampton vs Leeds
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 13 August 2022
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: St. Mary’s Stadium.
Both Southampton and Leeds had poor campaigns the last season in the English top flight and should consider themselves lucky to have avoided getting the boot. It goes without saying that they will be determined to have a far better season this time around.
It seems that Southampton are still struggling to find form. They are going through a poor stretch of performances lately and are letting in goals in huge numbers.
Most of their recent fixtures have ended in losses and they have been unable to deliver at least one good performance in front of their home crowd lately as well.
On the other hand, Leeds have a different story to share. They have started their campaign on a winning note and that too against Wolves. They are also finding the back of the net in plenty and even have shown their form away from home.
Going on, they also have a dominant head-to-head record against this opponent over the years and have amassed goals during these games as well.
By the looks of things, it is expected that we are about to witness a victory for Leeds this Saturday.
