Bournemouth vs Southampton (Pick, Prediction, Preview)

Bournemouth vs Southampton

Bournemouth play fresh and offensively, especially at home they are strong. Southampton have little trouble in the foreign grass and is hit by a couple of injuries, but they have one – on paper – fin width that can come into play in the coming period. Value?


Bournemouth is a really good team, especially at home, where they have picked up five wins, played one match a draw and lost twice.
Southampton has simultaneously not impressed on foreign turf this season. It’s just been to the sixth point eight showdown and a goal difference of 6-10.
Southampton affected by absence and must for this showdown ignore players like Oriol Romeu and Charlie Austin, while Cedric Soares is questionable.
Bournemouth is also slightly hit by injuries, but can still with the same crew, who later defeated Leicester 1-0 at home.
Southampton have great trouble getting pricked goal. It’s just been to 14 goals in 16 league games this season so far.


Bournemouth’s defense may well be to talk with – even if they generally tend to be solid at home.
Callum Wilson has this week been questionable for the showdown. He ended up being reported ready (concussion), but can be set back slightly.
He has also been linked with a number of other teams, so maybe it starts to come into play for Bournemouth-top scorer?
I think it works to Southampton has a broader team than Bournemouth, and just the banks start to play into the packed program.
Southampton has – seems to – focused on locking in the rear, thereby going off in their last few games without cashing goal.

Prediction: Under 2,5 goals
Odds: 1,65
