Southampton v Liverpool predictions and football betting tips for the Premier League on Sunday.
After a tight opening leg to their last 32 Europa league tie with Besitkas, Liverpool travel to the south coast to take on this year’s surprise package Southampton. Ronald Koemans team currently occupying a champions league spot and will be looking to consolidate this moving into the final stages of the season.
Southampton have had a full weeks rest and preparation for this tie and the fact that Liverpool played less 72 hours previously will have a major effect on their sharpness and based on this my first football tip for this fixture is Southampton to beat Liverpool at 31/20 with Sportingbet.
Graziano Pelle has been finding the net on a regular basis this season and has been one of the driving forces in Ronald Koemans team defying all the odds and climbing the table. I fancy Pelle to continue to add to his 8 Premier League goals by scoring the first goal in Southampton v Liverpool at St Mary’s and this can be taken at 6/1 with Paddy Power.
Both teams have been in great form recently. Liverpool have welcomed the return of Daniel Sturridge to the team as well as Mario Ballotelli starting to show some form. Furthermore, both Southampton have been one of the top scorers this season with 38 goals in 25 games. I see the free flowing football to continue and back over 2.5 goals at 11/10 with William Hill.
This is one of the ties of the weekend and I fully expect an entertaining match with plenty of goals from both teams’ usual suspects. Liverpool’s midweek European excerts are bound to have an impact and I feel the Europa League curse will come back to haunt them and Southampton will be more than happy to take full advantage of this.
