Southampton vs Norwich prediction

Southampton finally got back to winning ways after seven rounds in the English Premier League, as the side managed to overpower Watford in a 2:1 game last Saturday evening.

However, the match didn't start that well for them, since they were back in the scoreline in the 24th minute with a goal from Sarr, but the home side completely dominated the second half.

In the end, they deservedly reached the three-pointer thanks to goals from Ings and Ward-Promise in the last fifteen minutes of the match.

The Saints are now just below the safe zone having two points less than safely placed Everton.

The home side will miss midfielder Armstrong (10/0), while doubtful is offensive midfielder Boufal (11/0).

Norwich is also coming into this match being recently in a bit better momentum, as they have a run of seven matches with no victory (and just one point earned) before they won away to Everton 2:0 two weeks ago.

Most recently, they also got a very positive result since the team managed to get a point in a home clash against Arsenal following a 2:2 draw last Sunday afternoon.

They had the lead twice and looked very concrete with the fast transition, while the Gunners were those with more of the ball possession, but not as much as chances created actually.

The game could have ended way differently on some other day.

The guests are set to miss central defender Hanley (3/0) plus striker Drmic (8/1). Midifelder Tetey (8/0) is doubtful.

Norwich have conceded at least 2 goals in 10 of their last 12 matches (Premier League).

The Saints are coming from a morale-boosting match and are favorites now, however, I wouldn't overwrite the chances of the Canaries after their improvement in attack recently as well.

Both teams to score and more than a couple of goals scored actually in a match that means more than three-poiinter is what I expect from this one. The odds are more than worth a try.
