Wolves vs Southampton
England – FA Cup
Date: Thursday, 11 February 2021
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Molineux Stadium.
The Saints are going through one of the worst stretches for any team in the whole of PL at the moment. They are conceding goals in frightening numbers, and are losing game after game.
In fact, just a week back, they had lost 9-0 on the road against Manchester United, and the loss completely shattered their confidence. They look like just a shell of their former selves at present, and no longer harbor any hope of a top-four finish.
Meanwhile, the Wanderers are trying their best to get back to their old form. Currently they are struggling to show consistency, but still they have been showing some sparks lately.
The out-of-form Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men are the apt opponents for them right now. Moreover, Nuno Espirito Santo’s men also have a good h2h record against this rival in the past decade or so.
As such, expect the Wolves to have an upper hand this Thursday.
Wolves vs Southampton: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Wanderers had recorded five of the past six overall wins.
- They had scored two or more goals in six of the preceding ten clashes.
- They were unbeaten in nine of the former ten encounters.
- It’s been 14 years since the hosts have won at this venue.
- The visitors had failed to score in two of the last four meetings at this ground.
Wolves vs Southampton Prediction
Santo’s men had recorded a 0-1 win on the road in the previous round, against Chorley. In the meantime, the Saints lost 3-2 on the road the past game week, against Newcastle.
Going on, the Wanderers were unbeaten in four of their past five overall fixtures, and they had kept clean sheets in three of the past five match-ups.
At home, they have lost just thrice since September of 2020, and two of these defeats had come against Everton and Aston Villa.
On the other hand, their counterparts are on a four-match losing run, and they had conceded a total of 16 goals in the process. They are also on a five-fixture winless run on the road, and three of these were defeats.
Going on, over the past ten years, Santo’s men have the upper hand in h2h clashes as well.
Taking these observations into account, expect Wolves to deliver a winning performance this Thursday against the struggling Southampton.
