Match start: 15:00 (GMT+1)
Manolo Gabbiadini’s goal on the 72nd minute of the match against Swansea (1:0) with high chances leaves the Saints in elite.
After a draw of Huddersfield at Stamford Bridge only two fighters for survival in the English Premier League are not sure about their future in the next season. In the parallel game the Swans will host Stoke City that has already left elite division. So Southampton needs to gain at least one point as we don’t really believe that Welshmen won’t win.
On the other hand, the intrigue is slightly far-fetched as the Saints have crucial advantage before the rival if we speak about goal difference (+9). That is even if the Citizens will win over them with the score 3:0, Swansea needs to win with odds-6.5 to be higher than the rival.
Pep Guardiola’s team has already celebrated the champion’s title and is just getting one victory after another, as if by inertia.
In the last 5 rounds the Citizens have 4 victories and one draw with Huddersfield (0:0). And same there was the only match when Man City couldn’t score at least 3 goals.
In 4 out of 5 away matches in frames of the EPL the Citizens have scored minimum 3 times. In all these games Guardiola’s team has surely passed odds in-1.5 goals.
Man City has already broken the record on the gained points during the season for the entire of the Premier League. If it is possible to beat the Saints, then Man City will become the first to gain 100 points.
In the first circle the Sky Blues have won over the rival at home with the score 2:1 and last season have won over him during away match with the score (3:0). But in 6 last matches at St Mary’s Stadium the current team Guardiola has celebrated success only in two cases and have lost two matches.
Southampton to win 6.80
Man City to win 1.42
With their thoughts the Saints will be on the field of the parallel match in Swansea. At the same time they can’t lose with the big score to them. Also the Citizens don’t need to destroy the rival to break a record on the gained points in the English Premier League. So we don’t wait for a high number of scored goals.
