Wolves vs Southampton Predictions and Betting Tips
Two games are scheduled for Monday in the English top division much to the delight of football fans around the world. The last game will be featured at the Molineux Stadium as Wolves and Southampton go head-to-head. Which side gets the all-important victory?
In recent seasons, their meetings have been entertaining for neutral fans with goals flying around. The last time they met, they played out a five-goal thriller with Wolves eventually grabbing the victory. As such, since gaining promotion, Wolves have lost only once in four games to the Saints with just one of those games ending in draws.
Minor setback for Espirito Santo's troops
Wolves' resilience in front of goal once again has served them well in the English top-flight as they have shipped only nine goals this season. They have the joint-best record alongside Leicester, Tottenham, and Aston Villa. However, they haven't managed to find their feet in front of goal with just eight goals scored. Nonetheless, they've still managed to win games but failed to do so in their most recent game. Vardy's penalty stopped them from getting any point in the last game before the international break as they recorded their first loss in five games. However, with the break, Nuno and his staff now have surely put a plan in place to bounce back from this bump on their journey.
High-flying Saints will take some stopping
Every single year, there's always a mid-table side that manages to push into the top four or top six, with them eventually failing to secure that finish. Southampton not only fit the description, but they also look like they might secure their best league finish in recent memory taking into account their current form. The Saints are in 4th place, just two points off the summit of the league table. It is then left to see if they can manage to continue this decent run of form.
In their game before the international break, they entertained Newcastle United looking for their third straight win. Gals in either half from Adams and Armstrong helped them do just that as the ran out 2-0 winners. They were very impressive even with the absence of Ings who missed out via injury.
