Southampton have been struggling with some pretty indifferent form this season although it would appear that they have steadied the ship somewhat in recent weeks and they head into tonight’s clash with south-coast rivals Brighton & Hove Albion on the back of four-game unbeaten run across all competitions. The fact remains that they have failed to register a single win in the Premier League since November and as a result they find themselves sitting second-bottom in what is a pretty tight bottom-half of the top-flight. They will have been boosted by their 1-0 win over Watford in the fourth round of the FA Cup last time out, however it is league points that they desperately crave and in this regard they have a battle on their hands at St Mary’s tonight.
Brighton & Hove Albion’s plight is just as serious as that of the Saints given that they sit just a single point against their south-coast rivals heading into this midweek meeting. The Seagulls also won their weekend FA Cup match to the tune of 1-0 against Championship side Middlesbrough but like Southampton they desperately need Premier League points on the board and we’re far from confident that they will collect all three this evening.
Indeed neither Southampton nor Brighton & Hove Albion fill us with confidence and we can’t bring ourselves to back either of them on the outright market. Instead we’ll be looking at goals and given that Southampton have hardly been banging them in for fun this season and only one side has scored less than the Seagulls in the top-flight this term, we’ll be siding with Under 2.5 Total Goals at odds of 8/13 with BetVictor Free Bets
