Prediction: Southampton vs Brentford

Prediction: Match to end in 1-1 draw

Best Odds5/1


Southampton and Brentford will face each other in the Premier League this week. The match between the Saints and the Bees will be held at St. Mary’s Stadium and is scheduled to kick off at 7:30pm UK time on Wednesday.


Southampton are a big and established club in the Premier League, but there is a very distinct possibility that they could end up in the Championship at the end of the season. Things are dire for the Saints at the moment, and we should not be surprised if they do go down to the second tier of English football.

The Saints are at the foot of the Premier League table at the moment with 22 points from 26 matches. Southampton are two points behind 18th-placed Bournemouth and a point behind second-from-bottom Leeds United. The Saints are two points behind 17th-placed West Ham United.

There have been one or two signs in recent weeks that things could change for the better for Southampton. The Saints held Manchester United to a goalless draw away from home at Old Trafford in the Premier League this past weekend. It came after a 1-0 win over fellow relegation candidates Leicester City at St. Mary’s Stadium in the league and followed a 2-1 defeat to Grimsby Town at home in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Team News:

Southampton are likely to line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation. Che Adams will continue to lead the line for the Saints. James Ward-Prowse and Lavia will be the two holding midfielders.


Brentford have been one of the surprise package of the season in the Premier League so far this season and are doing extremely well. Many would have expected Thomas Frank’s side to be involved in the relegation fight, but the London club could actually end up in the European places in the standings.

The Bees are ninth in the Premier League table at the moment with 38 points from 25 matches. Brentford are 10 points behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur, who have played 27 games. Now, it is unlikely that the Bees will end up in the UEFA Champions League places, but they could clinch a UEFA Europa League or a UEFA Europa Conference League spot.

Brentford will head into the match against Southampton at St. Mary’s Stadium in the Premier League this week on the back of a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Everton away from home at Goodison Park in the league. It came after a 3-2 victory over Fulham at home in the Premier League.

Team News:

Brentford will line up in a 4-3-3 formation. David Raya will continue to stay in goal. Ivan Toney will lead the line for the Bees.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Southampton have conceded 41 goals in 26 Premier League matches so far this season.
  • Southampton have scored 20 goals in 26 Premier League games so far this season.
  • Brentford have lost 1 of their last 5 Premier League matches.
  • Brentford have scored 40 goals in 25 Premier League matches so far this campaign.
  • Ivan Toney has scored 15 goals and conceded three assists in 23 Premier League matches so far this season.


Southampton have started to get some positive results and will be confident against Brentford. However, the Bees are a better team, and it is really hard to see Thomas Frank’s side drop all three points at St. Mary’s Stadium. A scored draw is the most likely outcome.

Prediction: Match to end in 1-1 draw
