Southampton welcomes AFC Bournemouth in a fixture from the 36th round of the English Premier League. Let’s have a look at this clash at the St. Mary’s in our winning soccer predictions for today.
Southampton are still not completey safe from relegation at this point. Right now the Saints are 16th in the league standings with 37 points, being only 6 points ahead of the 18th Cardiff City and the relegation zone. They need one more win in order to be officially safe from relegation.
At this point Southampton’s record in the league looks like this: 9 wins, 10 draws and 16 losses. In their last five matches the Saints won twice, but also lost twice and made one draw. In their last game Ralph Hassenhuttl’s players visited Watford and won a point with a 1-1 draw at the Vicarage Road. Shane Long opened the score for Southampton after just 7 seconds of playing, but Andre Gray equalised for Watford in the 90th minute of the game.
In the same time Bournemouth are 14th in the Premier League with 41 points won so far. The Cherries have a record of 12 wins, 5 draws and 18 losses in the games played so far. For them the most important thing is that they once again they managed to keep their place in the elite division.
In terms of current form, we can say that Bournemouth won just one of their last five games, beating Brighton & Hove Albion away from home. They also made one draw and suffered three losses.
Bournemouth’s last game in the league didn’t end well, because Eddie Howe’s team suffered a dissapointing 0-1 loss against the already relegated Fulham at home. Aleksandar Mitrovic from a penalty kick scored Fulham’s only goal in the game soon after the halftime break.
That’s our winning soccer predictions for the Premier League game between Southampton and Bournemouth on Saturday. Good luck!
