Southampton FC vs Cardiff City FC – Correct Score odds
Cardiff have been very poor when it comes to scoring on the road with a major chunk of the goals coming in the matches at Cardiff City Stadium. Southampton may approach matches with an aggressive style and comes to pressing the opposition, but it has not exactly yielded rewards at the back with no clean sheets in six matches. Our correct score prediction would back a 2-1 win for Southampton.
Southampton FC vs Cardiff City FC – Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
There have been goals in significant numbers when it comes to matches involving Southampton and it is largely down to the poor defensive record of late. Cardiff should not be a major threat to Southampton’s backline considering that Neil Warnock’s men have only managed a paltry seven goals in away matches this season. Even then, our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals.
Southampton FC vs Cardiff City FC – First Goalscorer odds
Charlie Austin is likely to be recalled to the starting line-up after the injury to Danny Ings. The goal return from the England international has been quite poor, and he last scored in the 3-2 win over Arsenal in the middle of December. However, Nathan Redmond has been in excellent form after grabbing four goals in his last six appearances. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Nathan Redmond.
