Southampton vs AFC Bournemouth Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Southampton failed to book an FA Cup final date after losing 2-0 against Chelsea in the semifinals. Olivier Giroud continued his excellent run against the Saints by opening the scoring just seconds after the break. Alvaro Morata came on as a substitute and scored the second goal to make the game safe for the blues. Bournemouth lost for a second consecutive game as Manchester United were able to get a 2-0 win at the Vitality Stadium. Chris Smalling’s opening goal in the first half was built upon by Romelu Lukaku in the second half.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Southampton have been unable to get a league victory at St Mary’s stadium since November. One of the primary reasons behind the club still being in the drop zone is down to this mediocre home record, while Bournemouth enter into the game after having lost the recent two games. Bournemouth are not on par with Southampton in terms of motivation and confidence. I would go with a win for Southampton, as Mark Hughes’ men are due a win.

The Bournemouth outfit has found it difficult to score goals of late. Southampton’s defence has been able to come in with some decent performances – even if they have been taken for a ride in the games against Chelsea and Arsenal. The recent game between Bournemouth and Southampton at St Mary’s Stadium ended up as a goalless draw. I would back a game that has less than 2.5 goals.

Southampton Preview

Even though Mark Hughes came on to replace Mauricio Pochettino several weeks ago, Southampton are yet to justify the change in terms of results. Performances from the south coast outfit have improved substantially, but the lack of positive results mean that Southampton sit far away from potential safety. The club need to end their eight-game winless run in order to have any chance of survival. The chances of Southampton staying up already looked grim due to a tough run of matches coming up for the Saints. However, the return of Charlie Austin is a significant positive factor, as Shane Long has been unable to score sufficient goals to keep the club in a fighting position.

Southampton Team News

Steven Davies (Achilles tendon) and Sofiane Boufal (illness) are unavailable for manager Mark Hughes.

AFC Bournemouth Preview

After appearing to be potential candidates for Europe only two months ago, Bournemouth have slipped away quite a lot in the last few weeks. Back-to-back losses have now put their hopes of a top-half finish in jeopardy. Bournemouth have struggled with injuries to key players in the last month, but the biggest worry for manager Eddie Howe will be the motivation factor going into the last three matches. Even though Bournemouth could ideally win the remaining three games and still finish in the top 10, the club’s recent set of results does not appear to hint the same. Callum Wilson still leads the scoring charts at Bournemouth with seven league goals.

AFC Bournemouth Team News

Junior Stanislas (knee), Rhoys Wiggins (knee), and Adam Smith (ligament) are unavailable for manager Eddie Howe.
