Sparta Prague vs Southampton Predictions

Sparta Prague kicked their Europa League group stage off with a very disappointing 3-0 win at St Mary’s Stadium, but since then they have improved significantly. They have beaten Hapoel Be’er Sheva twice and Inter Milan once since then to take themselves to the top of their group, although a defeat on Thursday would see their opponents leapfrog them.

The weekend saw Sparta Prague beat KArvina 3-0 to make it six wins, one draw, and two defeats in their last nine outings in all competitions, and it also continued an excellent goalscoring record which has seen them net 16 times in their last nine games.

Veteran striker David Lafata got the final one of these three goals, taking his tally to 11 goals in all competitions this season and making him by far the highest scorer for Sparta Prague. He looks the best option for an anytime goalscorer predictions on the Sparta Prague side of things.

Southampton managed to get back to defensively sound ways on Saturday as they earned a goalless draw at home to Liverpool. They have still conceded in six of their last eight matches though, a far cry from the side who kept six clean sheets on the bounce just before this run.

These defensive slip ups have seen quite a few results go badly for them. Southampton have only won two of their last seven in all competitions, losing three times and drawing twice.

This is a very poor record for them, and considering the improvements Sparta Prague have made since their defeat to Southampton I think this is going to be a very close match.

Sparta Prague have only lost one of their 11 home games in all competitions this season, whilst Southampton have won just one of their eight away days this term. This makes odds of 8/11 for a Sparta Prague Win or Draw Double Chance incredibly good value, and I’m backing that along with a 2-1 win for Sparta Prague at 12/1 for my correct score predictions.
