Southampton vs Leicester: Top free betting tips

Leicester City will be desperate to regain their winning form against Southampton in the next EFL Championship fixture. Both teams will be entering St Mary’s Stadium on Friday, 15 September. The Saints make an appearance in this game after a defeat against Sunderland in the second division.

Total goals prediction: Over 2.5 Goals

Three of the previous four H2Hs between these two sides have finished with Over 2.5 Goals. Southampton have managed an average of scoring two goals per game in the previous four fixtures in the EFL Championship. The Foxes have also rattled the net seven times in the same number of games away from King Power Stadium. Additionally, the Saints also conceded five goals in the previous league game against Sunderland. Therefore, a total of Over 2.5 Goals will be our first pick for this fixture.

Both teams to score prediction: Yes

Leicester City have found the back of the net in four of the last five fixtures while keeping two clean sheets. On the other hand, Southampton have also rattled the net in four games during the same duration. But the Saints have been unable to find a clean sheet in that course. Adding more to this, Southampton and the Foxes have contributed to four BTTS outcomes in their last five H2H meetings. Hence, we predict goals from both ends of the field in this game.

Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Leicester

Sunderland scored multiple goals in both of the league outings at St Mary’s Stadium. But the Foxes won’t be an easy challenge for the Saints as Leicester have conceded just three goals in the previous five matches, keeping two clean sheets. Meanwhile, Southampton have allowed more than one goal in three matches during the aforementioned period. The Foxes have also scored two goals in three of the recent four games. Based on these statistics, we predict a 1-2 win for Leicester City at the end of this game.
