Southampton vs Huddersfield: Southampton has been undefeated in H2H matches for almost a decade. With Huddersfield to ensure consistency away from home this quarter, it is very likely that the victory will turn in favor of the hosts on Saturday.
Southampton shared the loot with Crystal Palace in a 1-1 draw last week at home, finishing their winning streak of two games. The hosts were much better in this final confrontation and recorded five target shots at the end of the ninety minutes.
It is also worth mentioning that the Saints have now only stumbled twice in their last eight Premier League games.
Huddersfield recovered from a disappointing 1-0 road loss to Middlesbrough on the road, winning a 2-1 victory over Blackburn in his previous home game. Either way, visitors have been erratic so far in their national campaign. They have no more than three victories to boast of their previous ten games.
To add even more misery, Huddersfield has dropped loyal travelers on most of his recent departures. Guests have tried success only once in their previous five clashes away from home.
Miserably, they also did not obtain bragging rights on each of their four previous visits to St Mary’s Stadium. With a local advantage to his credit, Southampton is the favorite to qualify for the next round this weekend.
In addition, despite their promises during their recent clashes, the Saints have not yet resolved the problems in their third defense. The fact that they haven’t kept a clean sheet at home this season certainly attests to it.
Meanwhile, Huddersfield has not been able to find the bottom of the net once in its outings this season. Since your last three h2h meetings here have also seen the two teams contribute to the markers, count on Huddersfield for their names on the score sheet with Southampton.
