Bournemouth vs Southampton by EPL specialist
The 2 teams are both on 21 points in 9th and 10th place. Both teams much prefer to play on home ground than away from home. Bournemouth's home record is 5-1-2 while Southampton's away record is 1-3-4.
Because of the home advantage, we have to give Bournemouth the edge. Looking at Bournemouth's win so far, 4 of their 6 wins came by a 1-0 score. And, in Southampton's last match, they played against a 10 man Stoke city team for 70 minutes, as Stoke had a sending off after about 20 minutes. Despite their numerical advantage, their failed to score and the match ended 0-0.
Southampton showed that they are really missing their main striker and top scorer Charlie Austin, who is injured and got 6 goals for them before his injury, out of Southampton's total of 14 goals. 14 goals scored is very low actually, joint worst scoring record in the league with Hull City, so it wouldn't be a surprise at all if Bournemouth can keep a clean sheet.
However, Southampton do also have a good defense, 3rd best in the league with only 15 goals conceded in 16 matches, so Bournemouth using their home advantage to get their usual 1-0 wins looks likely to happen again!
