Southampton vs Wolves Prediction & Betting tips
Relegation candidate Southampton will face PhD candidate Wolverhampton on Saturday afternoon at St. Mary’s Stadium. The Wolves were eliminated by Watford in the semi-final of the FA Cup and still had a mental blow.
Southampton is still above the relegation line in the Premier League and there seems to be little change in the last six games. The team of Ralph Hasenhüttl has five points more than Cardiff City and nobody expects Cardiff City to succeed in passing Southampton or Brighton & Hove Albion. Moreover, there are still a number of games scheduled for Southampton in which The Saints can grab some points. Southampton, for example, is not completely out of hand in its own home against a Wolverhampton, which recently lost 2-0 to Burnley, for example.
After two wins in a row, the Southampton players had to give up again in the previous round. Just like this weekend, a home game was scheduled, as Liverpool was the opponent of The Saints last Friday. Southampton took the lead early in their own stadium by a goal from Shane Long and The Saints held up well against the leader. Still, Southampton goalkeeper Angus Gunn had to take the equalizer nine minutes before halftime and in the last ten minutes Liverpool was twice accurate. Southampton lost 1-3 to Liverpool, but the game still has to offer Hasenhüttl perspective. Incidentally, Southampton gave away a 1-0 lead against Liverpool and The Saints lost 23 points in the entire season after they took the lead.
It is certain that for Wolverhampton it is a season to remember. A few weeks ago, as a PhD student, the Wolves were sure to retain their body and Wolverhampton also reached the semi-finals of the FA Cup. In it, Watford was 3-2 too strong for the Wolves last weekend, who gave a 0-2 lead over Wembley in the last 25 minutes. With eleven minutes left, the Wolves seemed to qualify for the FA Cup final for the first time since 1960, but in the end the team of Nuno Espírito Santo gave it away quite unexpectedly.
As a result, the Wolves are only active in the Premier League in the final weeks of the season, but that is not a disaster either. The Wolves still have the best papers to finish as number seven i and that would be a world achievement. In fact, if the Wolves end up in the left-hand row of the Premier League, the club has already outperformed this season. The latter doesn’t seem to go wrong at all anymore, because Wolverhampton is already five points ahead of eleventh place.
