Southampton vs Bournemouth Predictions
Southampton managed to avoid relegation last season after improving vastly under the management of Ralph Hassenhuttl following a dreadful start under Mark Hughes. The Austrian boss will no doubt have been hoping his side could take some momentum from that form into the new campaign but instead they fell to defeats in the opening two weeks, 3-0 away at Burnley and 1-2 at home to Southampton.
Since then however the Saints have enjoyed a real upturn in form. A 0-2 away win over another south coast outfit, Brighton & Hove Albion, has been followed up with a home draw against Manchester United, an away win at Sheffield United and an EFL Cup victory away at Championship side Fulham. Can they continue that form with a first home win of the campaign here at odds of 21/20 with Bet365.
Bournemouth have enjoyed the exact same record as Southampton so far in this Premier League season, winning two, losing two and drawing one of their opening five matches. The Cherries will have been disappointed to open the campaign with a home draw against newly-promoted Sheffield United, but an away win at Aston Villa followed and that will have pleased boss Eddie Howe given how poor his side were on the road at times last season.
That victory at Villa Park was followed up with back-to-back 3-1 defeats both at home to Manchester City and away at Leicester City, but the Dorset side ran out winners by that same scoreline again last weekend as they welcomed Marco Silva’s Everton to the Vitality Stadium. Bournemouth have failed to win in their last six meetings with Southampton but you can back them end that run here at 29/10 with Betfair.
In those last six meetings, despite the Cherries failing to win any of them, the Saints have managed just two victories themselves with the remainder of the games ending in draws. Although not the biggest derby match for either of these sides, there’s still a definite local rivalry and perhaps that adds to a nervy atmosphere which can often result in tightly-contested matches with both teams struggling to pull away. You can back another share of the spoils here at 13/5 with Unibet.
We’re backing both teams to find the net in this game. Bournemouth have both scored and conceded in every one of their five Premier League matches so far this season while Southampton themselves haven’t failed to find the net in any of their last five matches in all competitions. You can back both teams to score at odds of 4/6 with William Hill.
