Wolves vs Southampton
England – Premier League
Date: Monday, 23 November 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Molineux Stadium.
Both these teams are amongst the best in the league at the moment. The Saints are currently placed fourth in the table, and incidentally, all three teams above them have extremely tough match-ups this weekend.
As such, this is a huge opportunity for Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men to climb to the top of the table. Moreover, with their current form, this is a realistic outcome.
Meanwhile, the Wanderers had finished seventh in the table in 2019-20, and had missed out on a Europa League ticket by the tiniest of margins to Tottenham. In fact, despite both teams finishing level on points, Jose Mourinho’s men had a marginally better goal difference.
Going on, they have been consistent so far in 2020-21, and more importantly they have a good h2h record against this opponent over the past few years.
Suffice it to say that the upcoming encounter is going to be fiercely contested, and chances are very high for goals to come from both teams.
Wolves vs Southampton: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Nuno Espirito Santo’s men won the latest encounter 2-3 on the road.
- The previous three clashes had goals from both teams.
- The biggest win in the past two decades were recorded by the Saints; a 0-6 win away from home.
- Since 2008, not once have the hosts failed to score at this stadium.
- The latest clash at this venue had ended in a 1-1 draw.
Wolves vs Southampton: Prediction
The Wanderers lost 1-0 on the road the last match-day, against Leicester. In the meantime, the Saints won 2-0 at home, against Newcastle.
Going on, Santo’s men were unbeaten in four of their last five fixtures, and of these three were wins. They have also lost just once at home this season in a league game, and that was against former champions Manchester City.
Elsewhere, Hasenhuttl’s men are on a three-fixture winning run, and they had also won five of their former match-ups. In the process, they had also scored two or more goals in their past five games in a row.
Moving on, the latest clash between these two teams was a five-goal thriller, and the last three meetings between these squads had goals from both teams as well.
Taking into account these observations, expect goals to come from both sides of the pitch this Monday.
