Bournemouth vs Southampton Predictions

Bournemouth can score against Southampton with BTTS my best bet. Saints have more firepower and can put their Premier League woes behind them to win and progress in the FA Cup.

  • Bournemouth have lost 3 of their last 7 matches (Championship)
  • Bournemouth have seen BTTS in 3 of their last 4 matches (Championship)
  • Bournemouth have seen BTTS in 4 of their last 6 matches against Southampton (Premier League)
  • Southampton have won their last 3 matches (FA Cup)
  • Southampton have kept 1 clean sheet in their last 12 matches (Premier League)

Head to Head

Southampton have the historical edge, winning 14 and drawing 9 of the 31 games between the two. Bournemouth have won on 8 occasions.

Bournemouth have only won 1 of the last 8 meetings between the sides.

The last meeting was in July when Southampton all but rubber-stamped Bournemouth’s relegation from the Premier League

Bournemouth Form

Bournemouth are in a run of uncertain form and come into this game after 3 losses in their last 7 games. They lost 3-2 at home to Barnsley despite goals from Danjuma Groeneveld and Dominic Solanke.

They bounced back dramatically with a huge 3-0 win at home to Swansea with goals from Groeneveld, Philip Billing and an own goal. This really put them back in the mix for the play-off positions with nine league games left in the season.

Their FA Cup run has seen them defeat Oldham and Crawley before a 2-0 away victory against Burnley.

Bournemouth Injuries & Team News

The long-term injury loss of Lewis Cook sees him sit alongside David Brooks on the injury table.

The positive performance of Jack Wilshere against Swansea should see him retain his place, but he may be rested for the league games ahead. 

Southampton Form

Southampton are in a wretched run of form, they have only won two of their last 12 games, losing nine. Saints have 1 clean sheet in 7 games and will hope their dismal league form can be replaced by the good FA Cup run.

They come into this match on the back of back-to-back defeats. They followed up an 5-2 defeat at Man City with another loss at home.

Southampton were beaten 2-1 by Brighton, Che Adams’ goal not enough to ease Southampton’s woes. They are in danger of falling into a relegation scrap. 

In the FA Cup they have been a different side, yet to concede a goal and have beaten Shrewsbury, Arsenal and Wolves.

Southampton Injuries & Team News

Attacking duo of Theo Walcott and Danny Ings remain a big loss of Ralph Hasenhüttl’s side and they should remain out of the squad for this game alongside Michael Obafemi and Oriol Romeu.

Both teams have been weak at the back so I expect BTTS. Southampton should have enough quality to dispatch Bournemouth and get back to winning ways.
