Birmingham City looks forward to getting rid of their losing streak against Southampton in Round 14 of the EFL Championship on Saturday, 28 October. The Saints enter this game after losing two points with an away draw against Preston North End.
Match result prediction: Southampton to win
Southampton have registered three victories in their last five fixtures while ending two in draws. On the other hand, Birmingham City have tasted three defeats in the same number of matches. The Blues have also lost all of their last four games away from St Andrews’. Moreover, the Saints have also defeated Birmingham City in three of their last five H2H meetings at Saint Mary’s Stadium. Therefore, we back Southampton to come in front and resume their winning form on coming Saturday.
Both teams to score prediction: Yes
Birmingham City have gone goalless in the last two fixtures in the EFL Championship. However, they have helped BTTS outcomes in four of their previous five games against Southampton at Saint Mary’s Stadium. On the other hand, Southampton have also failed to keep a single clean sheet in their last five home games. Offensively, the Saints have netted the ball in four games in the aforestated period. Following these numbers, we predict the teams to contribute to the BTTS outcome in this fixture.
Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Southampton
Birmingham City have not scored multiple goals in any of their recent four games away from St Andrews’. Defensively, the Blues have conceded two goals in three games during the aforestated period. On the other hand, Southampton have succeeded in scoring at least twice in three of their previous five home and away league outings. The Saints have also conceded only one goal in three of those five matches. Considering these facts, we imagine a 2-1 victory for the Saints in this fixture.
