Southampton vs Leicester Prediction & Betting tips
On Saturday, Southampton and Leicester City will meet at St. Mary’s Stadium. Southampton did not win this season yet, but hopes to book Leicester City’s first victory this season.
Southampton had a hard time in the Premier League last season. The club is lucky that the club is not active in the Championship. You would think that they learned at Southampton last season and that they bought well this summer. Nothing is less true. The purchases all look reasonable on paper, but as yet they have not yet made the difference. However, we are only two matches on the road and it is possible that the acquisitions suffer from adjustment problems, but those problems have to be resolved quickly.
The Saints managed to grab a point in their first two games. That point was taken against Burnley two weeks ago. In a scoreless game, Southampton managed to grab a point against Burnley, but there was not much joy in the team of Mark Hughes. Last weekend Hughes saw his team with 2-1 losses from Everton. After just over thirty minutes of play Everton had two in the basket and the goal of Daniel Ings just after the rest made no difference. For Ings himself, the goal was important, because so many goals the Englishman has not made in recent years. He may be able to flourish again at Southampton, but Southampton itself also has to flourish.
When we take a look at the ranking after the first two matches, we find Leicester City back in eighth place. Around this eighth position, Leicester City will also be available this season. If The Foxes have a top season, they can still move up to seventh place. If everything goes wrong this season, they will be happy at Leicester City if they end up in the left row. The first two games of this season have at least proved that Leicester City has a player group with which it can perform well in the Premier League.
In the first game The Foxes narrowly went to visit Manchester United: 2-1. In that game, Jamie Vardy was still positive with Leicester City with a goal. Last weekend there was less positive message about Vardy. An incomprehensible charge of Vardy on his opponent caused the English striker against Wolverhampton with direct red from the field was sent. At Leicester City they managed to win from The Wolves: 2-1. Fortunately, Leicester City did not have any luck at all: Leicester’s 1-0 was achieved by his own goal and James Maddison’s 2-0 was touched, which meant that the goalkeeper of the Wolves had no chance.
