Southampton vs Liverpool Predictions and Betting Tips
In what is a pivotal match in the title race, Southampton host Liverpool at the St Mary’s Stadium on Tuesday evening. Read on for our expert tips and predictions.
Liverpool hit the Saints with four when both sides clashed early this season but the Saint’s 1-0 win against the Reds at home last season is still very much of recent memory and whether lightning would strike twice is left to see. You can place a Bet with Desibets.com
Liverpool is keen on the closing the gap at the top
It hasn’t been a season to remember for the Saints but everyone associated with the club would surely be happy that they would be in the English top-flight next season. Their poor run of form away from home still persists as we saw Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side get battered by Brentford last time out. This would mean that they head into this game with just one win in their last ten league matches, not exactly the most ideal way to welcome quadruple-chasing Liverpool. Nonetheless, we expect them to make life difficult for their opponents this Tuesday as they look to, at least, finish the season on a high.
The quadruple-chasing Liverpool squared off with Chelsea in a cup final for the second time this season as both sides fought for the honours of being called FA Cup champions. Both sides failed to convert any of the plethoras of chances they had across 120 minutes and just like what transpired in the EFL Cup final, the tie had the be settled by a penalty shootout. Into the sixth round of kicks, Alisson Becker made a vital stop from Chelsea’s Mason Mount before Kostas Tsimikas netted the all-important kick to hand Liverpool their second trophy of the season. Rumours of the quadruple being on after the FA Cup final were a bit subtle but City’s draw with West Ham has only added fuel to the fire as the Reds can cut the lead to one point with a win this Tuesday. Still and all, it’s still out of their hands but they need to win their remaining two matches to give themselves a chance.
