Southampton vs Wolves
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 13th April 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: St. Mary’s Stadium (Southampton).
Wolves will be dejected that they lost a golden opportunity to lift silverware this season after they gave up a 2-0 lead in the dying minutes of their FA Cup semifinal against Watford.
But what’s gone is gone, and the team will be concentrating in finishing seventh in the league table, a position which they rightfully deserve.
Southampton is the last safe team in the competition as of now and has a five-point buffer if things go south.
With five match-days remaining all they need to be wary about is Cardiff, who sits below them, while two teams are already relegated. Cardiff has a mountain to climb though if they are to see a minute in the next edition of the Premier League.
Southampton vs Wolves Head-to-head (h2h)

Southampton vs Wolves Prediction
Wolves are vying for a top-seven finish, while at this dying stage of the season, Southampton still is not sure of their future in the league. Also, Wolves have been a revelation this year in the Premier League, and a great addition to the famed competitive spirit of the esteemed contest. Just the last match-day, Wolves defeated Manchester United and dented their chances of a top-four finish.
Also, Wolves have not much left this season to fight for. They lost their shot at the FA Cup, after some embarrassing complacency in the last minutes of the game, and for sure will be frustrated. Moreover, Wolves lost just twice in their last 15 ties, while Southampton was winless in 10 of their last 15 fixtures.
In h2h games, Wolves won the reverse fixture and won four of the last five meetings. Expect Wolverhampton to post at least a point on the board.
Things will not be easy for them though. While it’s true that the hosts are a class below on the basis of form, they are desperate and at home. Moreover, they found the back of the net in their last 12 straight home ties. Also, Wolves have struggled a bit in recent away ties. Expect both teams to find the back of the net.
