SOUTHAMPTON VS BRENTFORD PREDICTION: TEAM COMPARISON & TIPS
Although they only encountered a team at the bottom of the Championship table, Swansea City, Southampton only won 3-2 in the opening match of the FA Cup 3 days ago. However, this is also the 4th consecutive unbeaten match of the St Mary’s home team when the previous 3 matches they drew with Crystal Palace respectively, beat West Ham United away and held Tottenham on the home-field. Southampton is also unbeaten in the last 6 home matches with 2 wins and 4 draws.
Brentford also had a smooth start in the FA Cup with an easy 4-1 victory over League Two side Port Vale. Before that, the Bees had 2 effective matches in the Premier League when they made Manchester City face many difficulties and only lost at least 0-1, then beat Aston Villa. Although only a rookie of this season, Brentford’s current performance is not bad when he is getting 23 points after 19 matches, ranked above the other 2 rookies, Norwich and Watford.
Southampton is unbeaten in the last 5 home matches but they only have 2 wins and those are all minimal wins against Leeds and Aston Villa, opponents that are not appreciated. Meanwhile, Brentford has shown positive signs in the game and brought about possible results in recent matches, thereby winning the last 3 matches. Therefore, choosing the underhand is more feasible.
Select: Brentford FT.
Out of the past 9 home matches of Southampton, only 2 were explosive, in which only 2 of them scored more than 1 goal. Meanwhile, Brentford’s defense is showing improvement when they have only conceded 2 goals in the last 3 matches, which has made Manchester City’s best attack at this time only score 1 goal. Therefore, the ability to explode in this confrontation is unlikely.
Select: Under 2 1/2 FT.
In addition to their good form, Brentford also gained confidence when in the last encounter they also defeated this opponent with a score of 2-0 also at St Mary’s. Brentford often fails against the big guys and against the opponents who are not overrated, they often get not bad results, including beating Everton, Watford and Aston Villa in recent times. Therefore, it will not be easy for the home team to take 3 points.
Select: Draw FT.
The current performance of the two teams is not too different, even Brentford is 2 points ahead of this opponent after 19 matches. Although playing at home, since the beginning of the season so far, Southampton have only had 2 wins and those are the minimum victories against 2 unappreciated opponents, Leeds United and Aston Villa. Therefore, this is a match where the home team is expected to face many difficulties and most likely they will only get 1 point.
