Watford vs Southampton Prediction 13 January 2018

Match date: 

On January 13 2018 at 15:00 in the upcoming regular game of the English Premier League 23rd matchday at the Vicarage Road the local Watford are playing against their guests Southampton.

Despite the fact that Watford have been in some kind of a recession lately, they still managed to outplay Bristol City 3:0 in the third Round of the FA Cup on January 6. Anyway, Bristol City are the team from the Football League Championship who are in a crisis too. As for the English Premier League, after 22 games played Watford have 25 points gained with 31:40 goal difference and take the 10th place in the table right in the middle of the standings. In the latest five games Watford only gained three points as they outplayed Leicester 2:1 at home and in the rest of the games they lost to Huddersfield 1:4, Brighton and Hove 1:0, Swansea 1:2 and Manchester City 3:1.

As for Southampton, they played their game in the FA Cup at the same time with Watford. Their away match against Southampton finished with the victory of the Saints with one goal score. Anyway, in the national championship they aren’t strong enough and after 22 games played in it they are almost in the relegation zone. The Saints win and lose sometimes and last time they won was on November 26 last year against Everton. As for their away games, last time they won away from home was in the middle of September.

Southampton had an advantage in the history of head-to-heads of the teams. Anyway, in the first round game of the current championship Watford outplayed Southampton at the Saint Mary’s Stadium 0:2. Watford are playing at home this time and it seems to us the reason why they are much more likely to gain points.
