Both Teams To Score

Reason for tip

Both teams have scored in all three of Southampton’s competitive matches this season and that trend should continue at Plymouth, who excel on home soil and are unlikely to go down without a fight.

Draw 2-2

Given how strong Plymouth are at home, this is a tricky fixture for Saints and a 2-2 draw makes some appeal for correct-score bettors. The Saints were involved in a thrilling score draw at home to Norwich last week.

Plymouth Argyle vs Southampton Predictions

  • Plymouth have lost only two of their last 24 league games
  • Both teams have scored in all three of Southampton’s competitive matches this season
  • Both Plymouth and Southampton have taken four points from their first two league matches

Goals to flow in Devon

Southampton shared the spoils in an eight-goal thriller with Norwich last weekend and the energetic Saints could be involved in another high-scoring Championship clash at Plymouth.

Both Plymouth and Southampton have claimed four points from their opening two league assignments, but the Saints needed a 97th-minute penalty from Adam Armstrong against Norwich to keep their unbeaten record intact.

Prior to that, Southampton had recorded a 2-1 win at Sheffield Wednesday, where another late goal from Che Adams got them up and running.

Having also lost 3-1 at Gillingham in the EFL Cup, goals have been a common theme in Southampton’s early fixtures and that trend could continue at Home Park.

Home comforts can help Pilgrims

Plymouth were crowned League One champions with 101 points last season and their success was largely down to their form at home, where they won 20 of their 23 games.

Steven Schumacher’s side defeated Huddersfield 3-1 in their first home game of the Championship season, highlighting their prowess on their own patch.

Both teams have scored in seven of Southampton’s last eight competitive games and that looks the best value on offer on their trip to Plymouth.

Given how strong Plymouth are at home, this is a tricky fixture for Saints and a 2-2 draw makes some appeal for correct-score bettors.
