Liverpool vs Southampton Prediction 25 January 2017

Tournament: League Cup
Location: Anfield Stadium
Match date: 25.01.2017 at 20:00

On January 25 2017 in the semifinal game of the English League Cup at the Anfield Stadium the local Liverpool play against Southampton. (The first game finished with 0:1.)

Liverpool are still one of the most scoring games of the English Premier League. Yet, they are sometimes not reliable in defense enough and lose points which they definitely need to stay in the race for the championship. The loss to the outsiders Swansea 2:3 in the latest match prolonged the winless series of the team to make it 3 matches long already. Before that Liverpool drew Manchester United 1:1 and Sunderland 2:2. On their way to the semifinal Liverpool have already outplayed Burton Albion 0:5, Derby County 0:3, Tottenham Hotspur 2:1 and Leeds United 2:0.

As for Southampton, they had an unusual game with a lot of goals scored on the previous weekend. They won against the current champions of the league Leicester with the devastating 3:0. That victory broke the four games long losing series they had in the national elite division. Yet, the Saints show worse results in the away matches compared to the home ones and they only gained 9 points in the 11 matches played with 9:15 goal difference.

Southampton have an advantage in the results of the latest five head-to-heads of the teams. They have already met twice in the current season. In the first round game of the national championship in November last year the teams drew 0:0. As for the first leg game of the current stage of the League Cup, Southampton won that home game 1:0. Liverpool haven’t won for three games already and mostly lost points with the outsiders of the league. Southampton seem to be in better conditions now. That is why we think that the visitors will manage to score at least once, yet the hosts will score too.
