Plymouth vs Southampton Predictions and Top Betting Tips
Plymouth vs Southampton will be a curious game between two teams on very different levels. Here are our predictions.
Total Goals Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
Based on the first three matches of Southampton in the new season, they have had three overs and we expect more. This time, they will face a team that just got promoted from League One. The difference in class should be huge and we expect Southampton to score multiple times in this game. Moreover, Plymouth may also score a goal in this match, since they are a strong host.
Match Result Prediction: Southampton to Win
Plymouth are coming from League One and Southampton are coming from the Premier League. This should be a clash between two teams that cannot even be compared in strength. Plymouth are currently worth 17 million euros while Southampton's squad is worth nearly 300 million. They showed how strong they are in attack already and we definitely expect them to score at least twice.
Correct Score Prediction: 3-1 to Southampton
As mentioned above, we think that the visitors will win this game with a solid difference and based on the four goals they scored against Norwich last week, we think that 3-1 is a good scoreline. When we compare the Plymouth vs Southampton line ups, of course, the visitors have an unbelievable team when put next to that of the home side.
Plymouth vs Southampton Team Previews
Plymouth played an exceptional season in League One and deserved that promotion entirely. The team won the league with 31 wins in 46 games and a goal difference of 101:35. We definitely expected them to perform well in the Championship but we did not expect such a good start from them. They will be extremely dominant at home and it will always be a good bet when they are the hosts.
Southampton got relegated for the first time in years and they will be motivated to get back to the Premier League as soon as possible. The team has, unfortunately, shown signs of the same problems of the previous season. Their defense is a huge issue and they concede against almost every single opponent. They should have the advantage against most sides, on paper.
