Southampton vs Leeds English Premier League match on Tuesday, 18 May 2021, Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET and Venue: St. Mary’s Stadium.
Whites enter the top ten, and for a team entering the PL with little hope, that would be a great honor. They have an excellent h2h record lately against Southampton, and they surely have the upper hand on Tuesday.
So far, Marcelo Bielsa’s men are tenth in the standings and have a four-point lead over 11th Aston Villa. Also note that Villa is next up against Tottenham and is expected to lose points.
So if the Whites tried well, they could finish in the top ten for their fans, who had waited long enough for a season in the top flight.
Meanwhile, the saints rank 14th on the table. They showed promise early in the season, but they lowered their intensity sometime along the way.
They are immune to the relegation threat and therefore not required to leave after a win on Tuesday. You probably expect Leeds to put on the best performance at St. Mary’s Stadium.

alph Hasenhuttl’s men claimed a 3-1 win over Fulham on the final matchday. Meanwhile, the Whites managed a 0-4 away win over Burnley.
Bielsa’s men are on a two-game winning streak (scoring seven goals in the process) and have also been undefeated in eight of their last nine games. Note that they had also won three of their last four road trips.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in 15 of their last 21 games overall, and 13 of them were losses, which is concerning. Also, they recently have a bad h2h record against this enemy as well.

Still, Southampton is home, and it has been really good here lately. Furthermore, they will do their best to end your campaign on a positive note.
For the reasons, expect Southampton to find the back of the net at least once this Tuesday.
