Southampton vs Brighton and Hove Albion Prediction 31 January 2018

Match date: 

On January 31 2018 at 19:45 at the Saint Mary’s Stadium in the upcoming game of the English Premier League 25th matchday the local Southampton will play against Brighton and Hove.

Southampton drew in six of their latest 10 matches they played and these stats illustrate their style now. They are comparatively good in defense and really poor in attack. They actually signed a new attacking player during the winter transfer window and yet we aren’t sure that he will be good in the squad from the very start. Even though Southampton are considered to be the favorites of the upcoming match, they still score the average of one goal per game and that’s they we don’t think that they will win with a big goal difference.

Yet, we must say that Brighton don’t look incredible at the moment. In November they were on the 9th position in the standings. Anyway, they only won one singe game of their 13 ones played in the English Premier League lately and only managed to score five times in those matches. We must also admit that Brighton have only scored five goals in their 12 away matches already played and they scored three of these goals in one same game against West Ham. They didn’t manage to score in 75% of their away matches.

As you see, Southampton and Brighton are by far not the most scoring teams of the championship. Brighton have the worst attack in the league while the Saints aren’t much better. Moreover, the teams are the direct competitors for the places above the relegation zone as they are just in one point distance from each other. We must also remind you that there were just two goals scored in the first round game against the teams as they drew 1:1. All of the facts we have already mentioned before make us think that the teams won’t score a lot of goals in the upcoming match.
