Southampton vs Watford
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 30 November 2019
Kick-off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET

At the moment, both Southampton and Watford are arguably the weakest sides in the first division.

Southampton are yet to offer a reason for the home crowd to cheer about this season. Given that Watford have not been able to ensure consistency of their own either, count on nothing short of an exciting ninety minutes this weekend.

Southampton vs Watford Head to head (h2h)

  • Their last clash ended in a 1-1 draw.
  • Both teams have found the back of the net in three of their previous five games.
  • Four of their past five matchups have featured fewer than 2.5 goals on the charts.

Southampton vs Watford Prediction

Southampton picked up a point for the first time in four games after they managed to hold Arsenal to a 2-2 draw on the road. The hosts were much the better side in that matchup though and were forced to settle for just a share of the spoils as Alexander Lacazette gifted the Gunners a late equalizer.

Nevertheless, Ralph Hasenhutti’s men are still the second-worst side in the cluster and are just a point away from hitting rock bottom on the ladder.

On the other hand, with no more than one measly win so far, Watford are right behind the Saints as of now. Their last clash at home saw them succumb to 3-0 defeat against Burnley, prior to which they got the better of fellow struggling side Norwich on the road with a 2-0 scoreline.

Although the away side did taste success in their last outing, they have not been faring well in their previous visits to this venue. The squad have come out on top just once in their last five trips here.

Hence, Southampton are the favorites to secure the bragging rights in this one. Be that as it may, the Saints have been branded as the worst home side on the table with zero wins to their name. Given that their best result so far here was a 1-1 draw against the Red Devils, the safest punt would be opting for a Draw No Bet.

Furthermore, the hosts are yet to keep a clean sheet on home soil and have conceded twenty-one goals so far. Meanwhile, Watford have been consistent in getting their names on the scoresheet in their last two outings on the trot.

As such, count on both teams to find the back of the net come Saturday.
