Southampton vs Chelsea Prediction & Betting tips
The “Blue” frame starts as a favorite due to the collective and offensive potential that it possesses, which tends to appear more in front of lower level teams. For this reason and knowing that the “Sotton” is not reliable in its stadium, we believe that the bet “Chelsea will win any half” has value in this opportunity. Remember that you will look to win to fight until the end by sneaking into Champions League positions.
The present of “Sotton” is not positive after losing 3-2 against Arsenal and remain in the penultimate position of the championship. He has added 3 consecutive defeats, not being able to get out of the zone of direct descent. Of course, despite this bad time, still has a chance to stay in the competition, being 3 of the longed for salvation. It is still an eleven with good players but beaten from the soul, being known for defending badly.
As a local, Southampton has added little encouraging results in his stadium, after winning 3 matches, equaling 7 and losing the remaining 6 that he played in this condition (16 goals in favor and 21 against). It comes to equalize 1-1 with Brighton, to lose 0-2 with Liverpool and to draw without goals against Stoke.
The team’s campaign is not being positive for what was expected, reaching 57 units after drawing 1-1 against the irregular West Ham at home. It is 10 points from Tottenham in the fight to qualify for the next Champions League, it is very difficult to achieve this goal. It is expected that he can take advantage of his higher hierarchy, although the present spirit of the campus is not the best.
Far from Stamford Bridge, Chelsea has registered acceptable markers, despite their irregularity in the game (7 wins, 3 parities and 5 trips, scoring 26 goals and conceding 16 on their fence). His last departures were as follows: 4-1 defeats against Watford, 2-1 against Manchester United and 1-0 against Manchester City. For the Champions was thrashed by Barcelona (3-0).
The last time the two teams played was in the first round and the score ended up being favorable for Chelsea 1-0 (December 2017). In the “Sotton” stadium, the “Blues” have won their last 2 starts (1-2 in February 2016 and 0-2 in October 2016).
