Watford vs Southampton Prediction & Match Preview

Watford vs Southampton
England – Premier League
Date: Tuesday, 23rd April 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Vicarage Road (Watford).

Watford has been a revelation this season in the Premier League. They are here to stay, and with them being in the final of the FA Cup, the team has a chance to carve out some major glory for the fans. Considering they are taking on Manchester City in the one-off game, Watford needs to be on the finest of forms and will have to build some momentum before going in.

Southampton has a game in hand and a lead of five points over the three teams in the exit zone. If they are careful enough, the team could see out this season without disaster. Sure, they are on the road against Watford, and they have been a vastly-improved team this year, but Southampton has given them some tough fights over the years.

Watford vs Southampton Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Seven of the last twelve wins belong to Watford.

  • Except for a single tie at this stadium, every single one had over 2.5 goals.

Watford vs Southampton Prediction

Watford won seven of their last eleven matches and was unbeaten in 14 of their last 19. At home, they won five of their last six attempts and were unbeaten in seven of their last eight. The sole loss during this period came against Arsenal.

Meanwhile, Southampton was winless in 11 of their last 17 ties, and in 14 of their last 17 on the road. Since September of last year, the team has recorded just a single win against a team that was not in the relegation zone.

With Watford having an abundance of belief in themselves and needing momentum before taking on Manchester City in the FA Cup final, count on them to take advantage of their home status, and pull out a win.

But Southampton will make it as hard as they can. They are desperate due to the relegation threats, and over the years, they have given some tough battles to Watford. Matches between these teams have always been thrilling, especially at this venue. Except for a single tie, every other one had three or more goals, and seven of the last ten saw goals from both sides. Finally, Southampton had managed to record two or more goals in eight of their last ten visits.

Count on both of these teams to take part in the goal-scoring action.
