Southampton vs Brentford: Betting Tips & Odds

Premier League predictions ahead of Brentford's trip to bottom-of-the-table Southampton on Wednesday night. The Saints picked up a decent draw at Old Trafford last time out but might have been disappointed not to have won the game, while Brentford's long unbeaten run in the Premier League came to an end at Goodison Park.

Under 2.5 Goals

Our first Southampton vs Brentford prediction delves into the total goals scored during the 90-minutes. We're expecting a tight and tense affair between these two clubs with little in the way of goalmouth action. Four of the Saints' and four of the Bees' last six outings in all competitions have witnessed under 2.5 goals scored, so you can see why we're expecting another low-scoring game on Wednesday night.

Both Teams to Score – No

For our second Southampton vs Brentford prediction we're heading into the ‘both teams to score' market. Only one of the last six competitive meetings between these two clubs have ended with both teams getting on the scoreboard. Both teams have also only scored in two of Southampton's and three of Brentford's last six outings in all competitions, adding further weight to our prediction.

Southampton vs Brentford Lineups

Southampton

Southampton made the trip to Old Trafford on Sunday where in truth, nobody expected the Saints to pick up any points. However, with the game goalless after 34-minutes, Man Utd midfielder Casemiro committed a foul that the referee deemed worthy of a yellow card but VAR intervened and on closer inspection, it was upgraded to a straight red card and the hosts were down a player. Southampton huffed and puffed but could not care out a winning goal and the game ended in a 0-0 draw.

Juan Larios and Valentino Livramento have been ruled out of the midweek clash with Brentford but the Saints have a near full-strength squad to choose from ahead of what feels like a ‘must-win' match.

Predicted Lineup – Bazunu (GK), Bednarek, Perraud, Walker-Peters, Bella-Kotchap, Ward-Prowse, Alcaraz, Sulemana, Lavia, Walcott & Adams

Brentford

Brentford arrived at Goodison Park in the midst of a long unbeaten run but fell behind after just 35-seconds to a strike from McNeil and Everton held firm to secure a 1-0 victory. Brentford didn't really turn up until the second half and could have been more goals behind at that point and on the balance of play, the Toffees deserved their narrow victory.

Keane Lewis-Potter failed a late fitness test before the Everton game and along with Thomas Strakosha, could now miss the trip to Southampton on Wednesday.

Predicted Lineup – Raya (GK), Mee, Henry, Pinnock, Hickey, Nørgaard, Jensen, Janelt, Wissa, Toney & Mbeumo

Player to Watch: James Ward-Prowse

If Southampton are going to get the win they really need on Wednesday then there is a good chance that club captain James Ward-Prowse will play a big part.

The Southampton talisman top scores in the Premier League with 6-goals and has provided 2-assists as things stand. Usually, Ward-Prowse sets-up more goals for the Saints which suggests that his corner routines haven't been at their best this season.

However, as we saw against Chelsea recently, Ward-Prowse still has the best free-kick conversion rate in the Premier League and giving Southampton a free-kick just outside the box almost feels like you have given a penalty away when Ward-Prowse is on the pitch.

Ward-Prowse can;t do it all on his own though and he needs more from the strikers and his fellow midfielders if the Saints are to avoid relegation this season.
