All Southampton v Brentford match predictions, user poll and stats are shown below - plus the latest match odds.
Southampton, buoyed by their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after a 2-3 FA Cup success over Swansea City.
In that match, Southampton had 37% possession and 5 attempts at goal with 4 on target. For Southampton, goals were scored by Nathan Redmond (8'), Jan Bednarek (94' Own goal), Mohamed Elyounoussi (95') and Shane Long (102'). Swansea City had 14 shots at goal with 6 of them on target. Joël Piroe (77') was the scorer for Swansea City. The match was won by Southampton in extra time.
Southampton have been conceding pretty frequently lately, although they have also done enough to score goals themselves. Over their last 6 matches, Southampton have conceded in 6 of them in addition to scoring in 5 of those games. While that may be of interest, time will tell if the trend shall be sustained in this upcoming match.
Their prior results show that Southampton:
- are undefeated in their previous 5 league matches at home.
- haven’t won at home in the past 2 matches in the league.
Brentford will go into the clash following a 1-4 FA Cup win with the eclipse of Port Vale in their most recent fixture.
For Brentford, the goalscorers were Marcus Forss (26') and Bryan Mbeumo (66', 76', 87'). Kian Harratt (70') scored for Port Vale.
The numbers tell their own story, and Brentford have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 matches, conceding 8 goals in total. Defensively, Brentford certainly have room for improvement.
Heading into this fixture, Brentford haven’t won away from home in the past 4 matches in the league.
Head to head
Checking out their prior head to head duels going back to 01/03/2005, there has been little to separate the clubs with Southampton winning 2 of those games, Brentford 2 and 2 being drawn in normal time.
An aggregate of 15 goals were shared by the two clubs during those clashes, with 8 of them from The Saints and 7 netted by The Bees. The average number of goals per game works out to 2.5.
Team News: Southampton
It looks as if The Saints could make use of the 5-3-2 system this time and select Fraser Forster, Nathan Tella, Jan Bednarek, Lyanco, Mohammed Salisu, Romain Perraud, James Ward-Prowse, Oriol Romeu, Ibrahima Diallo, Nathan Redmond and Armando Broja.
Team News: Brentford
Brentford boss Thomas Frank has to choose a team with limited availability. David Raya (Knee Injury) and Josh Dasilva (Hip Injury) are not ready for selection.
We’re of the thinking that The Bees could decide to elect for a 3-5-2 formation, choosing Alvaro Fernandez, K. Vassbakk Ajer, Pontus Jansson, Ethan Pinnock, Mads Roerslev, Shandon Baptiste, Christian Noergaard, Vitaly Janelt, Sergi Canos, Bryan Mbeumo and Ivan Toney.
We believe that Brentford might well have a job on their hands to breach the defence of this Southampton team who we reckon will get the win and a maybe even keep a clean sheet as well.
We’re therefore predicting a 1-0 winning margin for Southampton at full-time.
Looking forward to watching this one unfold.
