Southampton 3-0

Southampton vs Blackpool Predictions

  • Southampton have gone beyond the fourth round of the FA Cup in each of the last two seasons
  • Blackpool have won one of their last ten matches
  • Blackpool have the fourth-worst defensive record in the Championship this season

Cup competitions have been kind to the Saints

Southampton have struggled in the league this season, but cup competitions have been a welcomed distraction for the Saints. Nathan Jones’ side have reached the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup already this season and Southampton have enjoyed themselves in the FA Cup in recent times, reaching the semi-final in 20/21 and the quarter-finals last season.

Nathan Jones made a few chances to his starting XI in the last round, but the team fielded was strong enough to beat fellow Premier League side, Crystal Palace, and a similar side should have no issues in seeing off Championship strugglers, Blackpool.

A Tangerines upset looks unlikely

Blackpool have been in wretched form in the league and an upset looks unlikely from the Tangerines. Blackpool have won just one of their last ten matches, with their only victory in that period, coming in the last round against Nottingham Forest. Steve Cooper made wholesale changes to his Forest side that day and the Championship side will face a must sterner test on Saturday.

Blackpool have leaked goals all season and have the fourth-worst defensive record in the Championship having conceded 40 times in 27 league matches this term, they could be in for a long afternoon on the south coast.

Southampton on the -1 handicap will be the main selection for Saturday’s game at St. Mary’s, with a 3-0 home victory forming the correct score prediction.
