Southampton vs Aston Villa Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips

Southampton are targeting a home win as they host Aston Villa in an English Premier League fixture at St Mary’s Stadium. The Saints can bounce back against Villa who remain in relegation trouble.

Southampton Form

Southampton are coming off a 2-1 defeat to Burnley in their last Premier League fixture. Danny Ings scored the only goal for the Saints, whose performance deserved a draw.

Southampton remain one of the more impressive teams in the Premier League at the moment. Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men have claimed wins at Leicester and Chelsea while a 1-0 home victory over Tottenham is among their recent results. 

Southampton News

Midfielder Sofiane Boufal limped off against Burnley and is likely to miss Saturday’s clash. He joins winger Nathan Redmond who is also ruled out.

Aston Villa Form

Aston Villa suffered a 3-2 home defeat to Tottenham in the Premier League. They looked on course to earn a draw thanks to Toby Alderweireld’s own goal and an effort from Bjorn Engels but conceded a dramatic winner in added time.

The result means Villa have now claimed one win in their last five Premier League matches. Dean Smith’s men head into Saturday’s clash with back to back defeats having lost 2-1 at relegation threatened Bournemouth prior to the defeat against Spurs. 

Aston Villa News

Aston Villa are without Wesley, Tom Heaton and John McGinn who are all still sidelined with injury. Striker Borja Baston could be in line for a start after making his debut off the bench against Tottenham.

Southampton vs Aston Villa Head to Head

Southampton have a 24-22 edge in the head to head against Aston Villa with 18 draws from 64 previous matches. The Saints have claimed the upper hand in recent meetings with four wins from the last five fixtures.

Southampton claimed a 3-1 victory in the reverse fixture at Villa Park. A brace from Danny Ings and a Jack Stephens’ effort gave them a three-goal lead before Jack Grealish pulled one back for Villa midway through the second half.

Southampton vs Aston Villa Betting Odds

William Hill has the best odds for a Southampton win at 1.63. Bet365 is paying 5.50 for an Aston Villa victory while a draw is set at 4.30 at Unibet. 

The reverse fixture produced over 3.5 goals which is priced at 2.55 at betfair while William Hill is offering 1.62 for over 2.5 goals. 

Danny Ings scored a brace in the reverse fixture and is priced at 1.72 to score anytime while the first goal is valued at 4.00 at bet365.

Southampton vs Aston Villa Match Up 

Southampton will look to Danny Ings who is the team’s top scorer with 15 goals. The striker netted a brace in the reverse fixture against Villa and will be confident of getting on the score sheet.

Aston Villa’s attacking problems mean that midfielder Jack Grealish is usually the man tasked with providing the spark. The captain has scored just once in his last six matches and is likely to find things difficult at St Mary’s.
