Southampton faces Brighton & Hove Albion
Southampton faces Brighton & Hove Albion at the St. Mary’s in a match from the 36th round of the Premier League. We will preview this fixture in our football betting tips this weekend that are about to follow.
Southampton are in a high mood after their fantastic performance at the Old Trafford against Manchester United. The Saints were complete underdogs at the Theatre of Dreams, but they played a great game and won a point with a dramatic 2-2 draw. Stuart Armstrong opened the score against the Red Devils, while Michael Obafemi scored a very late equaliser in the 96th minute of the clash.
After this draw Southampton remain 12th in the league with 45 points and a record of 13 wins, 6 draws and 16 defeats. We can say that in a certain time the Saints were in a critical situation, but the hard work of the manager Ralph Hassenhuttl and his players really paid off.
Based on the match, Brighton & Hove Albion are still not completely safe from relegation. The Seagulls are 15th in the standings with 36 points, which gives them 5 points advantage in front of the 18th Bournemouth.
Brighton & Hove Albion lost their last two matches in the league. In the previous round Graham Potter’s boys hosted the former champion Manchester City, but suffered a devastating 0-5 defeat at the American Express. Generally speaking, it was a bad day for Brighton & Hove. Man City showed some of their best football and it was a bad luck for the hosts.
In these football betting tips this weekend we believe that Southampton are favourites against Brighton & Hove Albion at the St. Mary’s. The Saints won a prestigious point against Manchester United in the previous round, so we believe they are in a very good mental state. Let’s see if they can capitalize this against the Seagulls on Thursday.
