Southampton vs Leeds: Top free betting tips

From a horrid losing sequence on their back, Southampton lined up against fellow Premier League relegated side Leeds United in the EFL Championship. The fixture will take place at Saint’s Mary Stadium on Saturday, 30 September. The Whites enter this game after regaining their winning form against Watford in the English second division.

Match result prediction: Leeds to win

Southampton have suffered four consecutive defeats in the EFL Championship before their game against Leeds. On the other hand, Leeds United have made the turns of draws and victories in the same duration. The Whites have also won two of the previous three league outings away from Elland Road, ending one in a draw. Leeds have also won two of the last five H2Hs against Southampton while losing just one. Hence, we back Leeds United to find all three points in this game.

Both teams to score prediction: No

Both teams have failed to find the back of the net in two of their previous four fixtures in the EFL Championship. However, Leeds United have been impressive on their defensive end previously with four clean sheets before this game. On the other hand, Southampton have allowed goals in each game during the aforementioned period. Additionally, the Whites have also claimed two clean sheets in the last five H2Hs against the Saints while scoring in four meetings. Therefore, we predict only Leeds to be strong enough to rattle the net in this game.

Correct score prediction: 2-0 to Leeds

Leeds United have found the back of the net six times in the last three fixtures in the EFL Championship. The Whites have also rattled the net three times in two of their previous three league outings away from Elland Road. Adding more, Southampton’s defence has been terrible recently as they have conceded 12 goals in just the previous four league games, leaking multiple goals in three games. Hence, we believe to see Leeds United getting a 0-2 lead at the end of the ninety minutes in this encounter.
