Southampton – Bournemouth Match Prediction | 21-09-2019 15:00

Marys Stadium and we are tempted to put our money on draw. Southampton aim to keep on climbing the standings, but the game against the Cherries, who impressed in the triumph over the Toffees, will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. In their last meeting in the national championship the two teams played out a 3-3 draw and we believe that the history is going to repeat itself. A close encounter is on the cards at St.

Expert Verdict: Bournemouth have really struggled recently, and they have only just about backed their way into safety. That should propel them to a victory. Southampton aren't quite there yet, and that means they have even more to play for here. That means that, even with them having played in midweek, that the motivation is squarely upon them. Had they had two less wins over the season, they would be in real trouble, but as the table sits, they are good.

Southampton vs Bournemouth H2H

They are a strong team with many goal-scoring options and a solid tradition behind them. Historically you always know what to expect when these 2 teams play each other. They have won against Sheffield Utd 1:0 which is a perfect reminder for everyone of how good Southampton can be. Besides that, their Premier League season started well for them. They currently have 7 points from 5 games played. When these teams faced each other last 4 out of 5 times the game ended as a draw. Southampton is listed as a favorite here, as they should be.

The hosts want this win more than the visitors and we are positive that Shane Long and Co. The Saints are six points clear of the relegation zone and, no doubt, they are eager to grab something from Saturdays football match against Bournemouth. Southamptons Premier League status is still in great danger, but thanks to a 1-1 draw with Watford, they moved one step closer to securing the top flight survival. are going to prove their worth on the field.

Since then however the Saints have enjoyed a real upturn in form. Can they continue that form with a first home win of the campaign here at odds of 21/20 withBet365. A 0-2 away win over another south coast outfit, Brighton & Hove Albion, has been followed up with a home draw against Manchester United, an away win at Sheffield United and an EFL Cup victory away at Championship side Fulham.

Despite not exactly boasting an enviable goalscoring record for a centre forward, Long was always held in high regard by both managers and his peers, with his incredible work rate and never-say-die attitude winning him plenty of admirers. Long will also go down as one of the most prolific scorers in the history of the Republic of Ireland national team, which he represented at the Euro 2012 and Euro 2016 finals.

Form Summary

Southampton come into this match with 37 points on the board from 35 games. From their last five games, they have seven points, so its not been a poor stretch for them. A win would not officially confirm it as of yet, but it would realistically be the points that put them over the top, youd have to think. That puts them six ahead of Cardiff meaning that they are nearly there. Even if they dont do it here, they have a decent run in and should be fairly confident seeing as how Huddersfield is last up.

Shane Long is an Irish international striker who has so far made over 60 appearances for the Republic of Ireland national team, scoring more than 15 goals in the process. The forward began his professional career at Cork City, but only made one league appearance for the club ahead of the switch to Reading, where he would go on to spend next seven years.

Its captivating and astonishing, really. Three names you wouldnt associate with one another, yet they all are atop the assists chart. Fraser has a ridiculous total of 12 already, on top of scoring seven times as well, making him one of the most well-rounded players in the league despite playing for a mid-table at best side. Christian Eriksen, Eden Hazard, Ryan Fraser. Even in an injury ravaged season he has found the back of the net 12 times, pointing toward a real quality that can and will trouble any side. Up front, Callum Wilson keeps on leading the line.

Bournemouth have enjoyed the exact same record as Southampton so far in this Premier League season, winning two, losing two and drawing one of their opening five matches. The Cherries will have been disappointed to open the campaign with a home draw against newly-promoted Sheffield United, but an away win at Aston Villa followed and that will have pleased boss Eddie Howe given how poor his side were on the road at times last season.
