Southampton vs Aston Villa: Top Free Betting Tips

Southampton are in their best form of the season to date and this match will be massive for both teams. Here are our predictions.

Both Teams To Score Prediction: Yes

There is nothing else to expect from this match but goals from both teams. They are completely equal in strength right now and both sides have been having BTTS in the majority of their fixtures. Neither side can afford to lose this game and neither side has a clear advantage in strength or abilities. We expect it to be one of the best matches in the entire round.

Match Result Prediction: Draw

We do not know if either side has what it takes to win the three points here. Southampton recently beat Manchester City for the cup which was massive. On the other side, Aston Villa recently beat Tottenham on the road, so both sides have a lot to prove after such huge results. We expect a goal-packed draw in this match.

Correct Score Prediction: 2:2 Draw

We do not think that a correct score like 1:1 is enough for this game. We expect this scoreline in the first half even or perhaps more than one goal for either side. The 2:2 seems more probable given that both sides have been involved in massive scorelines lately.

Southampton vs Aston Villa: Form, Recent Games, and News

Southampton Preview

Southampton have had some serious struggles this season both in attack and defense. The team is in danger of getting relegated unless they find an improvement. Surprisingly, they did not even play a single friendly match during the World Cup and it seemed that they may be out of shape. But the team won the two most recent games, including a Cup match against Manchester City, so there is hope and real potential.

Aston Villa Preview

Aston Villa did not have a good start this year and until recently, they were in danger of relegation. Before the World Cup started, Villa managed to get 3 wins in four games and climb to the middle of the table. There is not much to expect from the team this season and the main goal is to remain in the elite. Their defense is not the worst but their attack remains one of the weakest. Right now, they seem to be in shape and we can maybe expect some good results before another decline begins.

Players to Watch (Southampton): James Ward-Prowse

Southampton's midfielder is seriously underrated. It is a fact that his goals mostly come from free kicks but this doesn't mean that his overall game is poor. Last week, the midfielder scored his 16th Premier League goal from a free-kick and this puts him right behind Beckam's record of 18. Betting on him to score in a game which will probably be quite aggressive is a good option.

Players to Watch (Aston Villa): Tyrone Mings

When it comes to Villa, there is no player that truly stands out with goalscoring abilities right now and this is why we have picked a different kind of player here. Tyrone Mings is a defender and he is ranked as one of the best pass interceptors in the league. The player is very physical and has 4 yellow cards in 17 games. Watch out for him picking up fouls as it may be worth a stake.
