Premiership – Southampton vs AFC Bournemouth Betting Preview

Southampton didn’t have the best start to their Premiership campaign with just six points from their opening six matches but since have hit some form with victories over Chelsea and Swansea and good draws against Liverpool and Leicester. They will be looking to continue that form in this game as they face a Bournemouth side that have lost four of their last five matches.

Southampton have two players in great form at the moment in Pelle who has scored four goals in his last five appearances at home will be on the score-sheet again here as well as Mane who has scored five in his last six matches.

Bournemouth sit just above the relegation zone heading into this one after 10 matches and a lot of people are predicting that they will be one of the teams to fall into that zone come the end of the season. The main reason for this is their defence as they have now conceded 22 goals in the league after losing 5-1 in both of their last two premiership matches.

Another reason is that they have lost key players in attack with Wilson and Gradel being out of action for long-term which has affected their attacking threat greatly meaning they are struggling at both ends of the pitch.

Southampton vs AFC Bournemouth Head to Head Statistics

25/07/14 FRI AFC Bournemouth vs Southampton 0 : 1
12/03/11 LEA AFC Bournemouth vs Southampton 1 : 3
02/10/10 LEA Southampton vs AFC Bournemouth 2 : 0
10/08/10 CAP Southampton vs AFC Bournemouth 2 : 0
11/07/09 FRI AFC Bournemouth vs Southampton 2 : 1

These two sides have met just 19 times throughout their joint history with Southampton coming out with the advantage after beating Bournemouth in ten of those matches whilst losing just five.

Ten of those meetings were hosted by Southampton and in those matches, Southampton have dominated Bournemouth with seven wins and three draws meaning that they are unbeaten in all matches against Bournemouth at home.

Using head to head statistics alone, it would suggest that Southampton will be victorious come the full-time whistle on Sunday.

Bournemouth are very much experiencing the opposite of Southampton after not winning any of their last five matches including four losses. Two 5-1 defeats to Tottenham and Manchester City have highlighted their defensive problems heading into this game.

Southampton Team News:

Southampton are fortunate to have Mane at their disposal for this game as he was able to serve his one-match ban in the cup game mid-week meaning that he missed no league matches. Southampton could also see the return of Cedric Soares after he missed the mid-week clash with Aston Villa but they will be without Jay Rodriguez due to a foot injury.

AFC Bournemouth Team News:

Eddie Howe would have had a huge decision on his hands as to whether he would continue to start Artur Boruc after his performance last week but he may have been saved the trouble after Boruc suffered a thigh problem which will see Federici step in to make his second appearance in the league.

Both sets of data suggest that we are in for an exciting game on Sunday afternoon with at least three goals being scored in the match.

Southampton vs AFC Bournemouth Free Sports Bets, Tips & Predictions

I am expecting a comfortable Southampton win in this match and that would be my banker but the odds are relatively short. Therefore I have decided that my banker will be for the game to have more than two goals as there has been over 2.5 goals in all of Southampton’s five home league matches and in Bournemouth’s last four away league matches. I can see Bournemouth getting a goal in this game as they have scored in their last eight premiership matches whilst Southampton have failed to keep a clean sheet in any of their last five matches but I can only see Southampton outscoring them in this one with at least a couple of goals to their name.

Both Graziano Pelle and Sadio Mane are in great form and look likely to score in this match but I have gone with Pelle to score first in this match as he has been much more prolific at home since he joined the Saints.
