Tip Reasoning

  • Brentford have seven points from the last nine available at home.
  • The Bees have five wins in their last eight overall.
  • Saints have lost seven of their last 10 games.
  • Brentford have managed three successive clean sheets at home.

Stuttering Saints head to Brentford

Southampton beat Brentford 4-1 when these teams met at St Mary’s in January but the Bees may well be able to settle the score with a win on Saturday.

Both sides are yet to mathematically secure their places in the Premier League for next season, but both sit level on 40 points and look to have already done enough to avoid the drop.

Brentford went down 3-0 at Manchester United last time out but that was just their second defeat in eight games (W5, D1), while Southampton head to West London in poor form and are winless in three (D1, L2).

Bees look backable at home

Brentford may have lost 3-0 at Old Trafford, but the scoreline flattered the hosts as Thomas Frank’s side created more chances (12 to United’s nine).

The Bees have been in good form at home having taken seven points from the last nine available at the Brentford Community Stadium and they have managed three successive clean sheets in front of their own fans.

Southampton appear to be meandering towards the end of the season and they have just one win in their last 10 games across all competitions, with seven defeats. As such, the odds-against price on a home win stands out for our main bet.

Another shut-out for Frank’s men?

Brentford’s strong home form has been built on a solid defence and they have managed a pair of 2-0 wins over West Ham and Burnley and a 0-0 draw with Spurs in their last three home games.

Saints are winless in five on their travels and have lost two of those games, failing to score in both of those losses, and they may struggle to find a way through on Saturday.

A 2-0 win for Brentford is the correct score selection as the Bees are averaging 1.75 goals-per-game across their last eight games and their last two home victories have been 2-0 successes. Southampton have also conceded at least twice in 11 of their last 13 away games across all competitions.

A goal for Brentford’s Christian Eriksen also has some appeal here. The Dane has one goal in eight games for the Bees in the Premier League but has been shooting regularly, averaging 2.0 shots-per-game and 1.0 on target, and with Saints struggling at the back this game represents an opportunity for Eriksen to add to his account.

Brentford predicted lineup: Raya, Ajer, Jansson, Sorensen, Henry, Dasilva, Jensen, Eriksen, Mbeumo, Wissa, Toney

Southampton predicted lineup: Forster, Walker-Peters, Salisu, Bednarek, Perraud, Armstrong, Ward-Prowse, Romeu, Elyounoussi, Broja, Adams
