Soccer betting tips for Southampton vs Brighton
On Monday night we will see the teams of Southampton and Brighton against each other. The duel is the last in the Premier League’s fifth round and is expected to be quite controversial.
After the weak start of the season for Mark Hughes and his boys, lately there are occasions for optimism in the host camp. Southampton has won its last two games of the UEFA National League matches. “The Saints” surprisingly surprised Crystal Palace with a 2-0 draw as a guest, before defeating Brighton 1-0 in a League Cup tournament match.
In the Premier League, Southampton has a four-point lead, having scored a draw and two losses in the first three rounds. “The Saints” retreated against Everton and Leicester City, and at the start of the season they made 0:0 against Burnley. In his last five home games in the league, the team led by Mark Hughes has only one win – 2:1 against AFC Bournemouth in April. Southampton must significantly improve his home game if he wants to finish this season in the first half.
Brighton & Hove Albion takes 14th place in the standings with four points to his name. Chris Hughton’s alumni played a good game against Fulham in the last round, but only satisfied with a point on their own field after draw 2:2. However, Brighton is far from home, not having scored a goal in his last three away games. This season, the team retreated to Watford (0:2) and Liverpool (0:1), so it will try to find the net for the first time and if it can score points.
Brighton’s team will also look for a defeat for defeat 0:1 last month in the League Cup tournament after Charlie Austin made the difference between the two teams. Still, however, I’m more inclined to re-trust Southampton, who can take advantage of the weak form of her rival away from home.
