“Southampton” does not belong to the category of teams that will be careful, sitting out on the defensive. There is no doubt that Ralph Hazenh?ttl's wards will once again begin to put high pressure on the opponent and actively seek out their chances at the gates of Matthew Ryan. And here lies the chance of “Brighton” - if they manage to catch the “saints” on the counterattacks, then the “gulls” can count on points.
In the tournament plan, one scored point did not significantly affect the position of the “saints”. Soton has long secured itself from the struggle for survival. Now the team is in 12th position. It has 45 points in its asset and no longer claims to be anything.
After the break, Ralph Hazenh?ttl's wards impress with their game. In six fights, the "saints" won three victories - over Manchester City (1: 0), Watford (3: 1) and Norwich (3: 0), tied twice - with Everton (1: 1) and Manchester United (2: 2). In liabilities, there is only a defeat from Arsenal (0: 2) in the native arena.
Note that at home Soton plays worse than away. By the number of points that the team earned at home, Southampton takes the penultimate place.
Due to injuries, the match will be missed by Sofian Boufal, Moussa Genepo, Jan Valerie and Nathan Tella.
After quarantine Brighton had a tough schedule. The team opposed Arsenal (2: 1), Leicester (0: 0), Manchester United (0: 3), Liverpool (1: 3) and Manchester City (0: 5), and also beat Aston Villa (1-0). So the seven points scored for this period is a pretty good result.
As for guest matches, Brighton has not lost on fields of rivals in five matches in a row, four of which the team ended in a draw.
In the infirmary at the "gulls" are settled Stephen Alsate and Jose Iscierdo.
Southampton also has nothing to give in to this meeting. In our opinion, there will be few goals. Brighton can play defense. Over the four previous away matches, he conceded a total goal.
Our forecast is a total goal under 2.5 for 1.80 from BC 1xBet
