Watford vs Southampton (By: Saconex)
England Premier League
Watford (8) vs Southampton (16)
The hosts will go into this match as big favourites imo. They are coming from winning 1-2 vs Huddersfield (20) after losing 0-1 at home vs Arsenal (5) before that. As it stands they are in a position to fight for the 7th place that gives them Europa League matches next season. Their motivation should be high for sure. Deeney will still be missed. Also Cleverly, Quina & Holebas is out.
Southampton doesn’t look good I have to say. They are coming from losing 3-1 away vs Newcastle (13), and it was absolutely deserved for the hosts. With 5 points down to the relegation zone nothing is safe by now, but taking in mind the fixture list they shouldn’t mess themselves into the relegation zone I think. Obafemi injured. Valery & Vestergaard reported doubtful.
* The reverse fixture ended 1-1 in November
* 7 of 14 Watford victories this season ended up with 2+ goals wins
* 9 of 16 Southampton losses this season ended up with 2+ goals losses
I think that we will see Watford in good shape tonight. They are normally very solid at home, and their motivation should be high to continue fighting for the 7th place. Southampton looks a bit finished imo, at least they were really weak last time out. I dont think they will be able to create too many problems for the hosts here.
