Southampton vs Wolves
English Premier League
Date: 11 February 2023, Saturday
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: St. Mary’s Stadium (Southampton).
Southampton and Wolves will lock horns in a massive relegation six-pointer on Saturday afternoon at St. Mary’s Stadium.
The visitors will enter the game in much higher spirits after a comprehensive 3-0 victory over Liverpool seven days at Molineux Stadium.
It was the second win in the previous three Premier League affairs for the Wolves who moved up to 15th place in the league table as a consequence.
The visitors are now two points above the relegation area and five points above the rock-bottomed Southampton.
Although we are practically just past the halfway point of the season, we could say this is one of the last trains to catch for the Saints in the battle for avoiding the drop to Championship football.
A potential defeat here would leave Southampton firmly at the foot of the standings and further increase the gap between them and the teams in the safe zone.
There is really not much to suggest a positive scenario for Nathan Jones’ troops here. They suffered a tough 3-0 defeat at the hands of Brentford last weekend.
The Saints lost eight of the previous nine Premier League games. They have the third-worst attacking and the second-worst defensive record in the competition after 22 rounds.
Southampton vs Wolves Head-to-head
- To make matters worse for the Saints, they will go into this off the back of four consecutive defeats in the matches against Wolves.
- The run includes this term’s 1-0 victory for Wolverhampton back at the very start of the season in early-September at Molineux.
- Four of the previous six H2H outings between these rivals saw fewer than three goals scored.
Southampton vs Wolves Prediction
Both teams have been struggling to get things going since the beginning of the season but we can’t deny the fact that Wolves will enter this tie in much higher spirits. They have just demolished Liverpool 3-0 at Molineux, while Southampton have lost eight of the previous nine Premier League games.
We’ll take Wolves to win & Under 2.5 goals FT pick at the 4.75 odds, while you can alternatively back the 0-1 correct score bet at the odds of 8.00.
