Round 7 of the English Premier League sees Brentford head over to Southampton, hoping to deliver their fifth win against the hosts.
The hosts are in a very shaky form, having won just two of their last five matches and lost two. One more loss just might spell doomsday for them. The EPL fixture is scheduled to kick off at 7:30 PM (UTC), on Wednesday, at St. Mary’s Stadium, Southampton, Hampshire.
After suffering two consecutive losses, Southampton fought tooth and nail to record a win against Leicester. However, their joy was soon cut short when their next match against Manchester United ended in a draw. Come Wednesday. The Saints might need Jesus to join them in their battle against relegation.
On the other hand, Brentford sits rather uncomfortably at ninth position in the league. Having suffered just one defeat in their last five matches, the Bees hope to land a sting powerful enough to land them just below Liverpool in their next matchup.
Southampton is sure to miss the presence of Juan Larios and Valentino Livramento, in their coming fixture, with the presence of Ainsley Maitland-Niles largely doubtful. The Away side will be without Keane Lewis-Potter and Thomas Strakosha, with Mads Roerslevs doubtful.
Both teams are in mediocre form. However, Brentford is still more likely to win, as they have experienced victory in four of their seven matches against Southampton. Despite the fact that the hosts have also won in two of these matches, Brentford should be able to win as they have won the last two matches against Southampton. Besides, Southampton seems to be unable to capitalize on the home advantage as it has lost in four of its last five home fixtures.
Brentford to win, with odds set at 2.45 (+145 American; 29/20 Fractional).
