Southampton vs Liverpool
English Premier League
Date: 28 May 2023, Sunday
Kick-off at 16:30 UK / 17:30 CET
Venue: St. Mary’s Stadium (Southampton).
Southampton will have a farewell from the Premier League football on Sunday afternoon when they host Liverpool in the last game of the season at St. Mary’s Stadium.
The visitors enter the tie as massive favorites based on everything we have seen form the two teams in the last couple of months.
The Saints are winless in twelve straight league fixtures and they are going into this off the back of five consecutive losses.
The latest came seven days ago away at Brighton. It marked the third game in the last four rounds in which Ruben Selles’ men conceded at least three goals.
This will be the music to the ears of Roberto Firmino who is most likely going to get the nod in the final third in what will be his last game in Liverpool’s shirt.
The Brazilian forward was on target in his final match at the Anfield last weekend when he found a late equalizer in a 1-1 stalemate against Aston Villa.
Jurgen Klopp may rotate his starting XI here but we still expect a strong performance from Liverpool against the weakest team in the division.
After all, the Reds will come into this on the back of seven wins and a draw in the last eight Premier League affairs.
Southampton vs Liverpool Head-to-head
- Liverpool will enter this with four successive wins over the Saints, a run that includes this season’s 3-1 victory at the Anfield.
- Interestingly, Southampton own a positive record in the home clashes against Liverpool with 19 wins, 10 draws, and 18 losses in the last 47 matches at St. Mary’s Stadium.
- Liverpool scored at least two goals in ten of the last eleven outings against the Saints.
Southampton vs Liverpool Prediction
The difference in quality between these teams is massive and we expect Liverpool to pick up the victory without too many problems. The main pick will be Liverpool to win at the half time and at the end at the odds of 2.05.
Since we expect Roberto Firmino to start in his last Liverpool game, we will as well back the Brazilian forward to score anytime at the 2.37 odds.
