Cardiff City vs Southampton betting tips


Ralph Hasenhuttl takes charge of Southampton for the first time against a Cardiff side who have won three of their last four home games.

The 51-year-old Austrian was quickly identified by Saints as the manager they wanted to replace Mark Hughes, who kept the club in the Premier League last season but failed to improve them this time around.

Hasenhuttl’s reputation is built upon his work in getting Ingolstadt promoted to the Bundesliga and then leading RB Leipzig to a second-place finish in their first German top-flight campaign. He left Leipzig at the end of last season when they finished sixth.

Southampton used to be known for shrewd managerial appointments, especially Mauricio Pochettino and Ronald Koeman, but their last few choices have been less inspired and time will tell regarding Hasenhuttl.

He has had only two days to work with his players and that may not be enough to engineer a rapid turnaround in form against Cardiff, who increasingly look as though their fight against relegation will be based upon winning matches at home.

The Bluebirds have beaten Fulham, Brighton and Wolves in collecting nine of their 11 points so far and we think they can add Southampton to that list – although the Welsh’s club inability to keep a clean sheet suggests there should be a goal for the visitors.
