This English Premier League match will see Southampton travel to Wolverhampton to take on the Wolves.
Southampton won the last meeting against Wolverhampton, but the Wolves have won four of the last five head to head matches.
Southampton is currently one of the worst clubs in the EPL, posting just 7 points in their first 8 games. They are currently 17th in the table.
They have lost their last three games in a row, with their last loss coming to Chelsea by a score of 4-1. They are hoping that the International Break will rejuvenate their team and they will look to snap their losing streak.
Starting with the attack, Southampton is going to have to do a better job scoring. They have 8 goals on the season, making their average 1 goal per game. They are also about to face a tough Wolverhampton defense, so it is very possible that they will get shutout.
Their leading scorer this season is Danny Ings. He has 3 goals to show for on the young season. Ings will be the guy that Southampton will look to get the ball to. If he is bottled up, it will be a much tougher for this team to even score one goal.
Defending for this team has also been well below average. They have allowed 15 goals this season, which averages out to 1.87 goals per game. Their goal differential is -7, tied for 16th in the league.
To show how bad the defending has been, all you need to do is look at the last three games. During their three-game losing streak, they have allowed 9 goals. Keeping Wolverhampton under 2 goals is how they will have a chance to win this game. They cannot play from behind because of how Wolverhampton likes to counter.
Wolverhampton have won two in a row, which has moved them up to 11th in the league. They just beat Manchester City in their last game, which was a huge upset. This game was on the road, so coming home to face a weak Southampton team is sure to bring the fans out strong.
The Wolves are not exactly a flashy team that looks to score multiple times a game. They have 11 goals this season, which is just tied for 9th.
Adama Traoré and Raúl Jiménez both have two goals this season that leads the team.
Defensively is where the Wolves look to dominate every every time they take the pitch. They have allowed 11 goals, which makes their goal differential 0.
However, there are two games that stick out in terms of their goals allowed. First, against Chelsea, they allowed 5 goals. The other game is against Everton, where they allowed 3 goals. That is 8 goals allowed in two games. So if you take out two horrible performances, they have allowed 3 goals in 6 games.
The Wolves will look to sit back and defend against Southampton, who really struggles to score. This should allow their attack to break out and snag at least one.
Free Southampton vs. Wolverhampton Prediction:
The huge win over Manchester City should give the Wolves momentum and I think they will win this game.
4* Free EPL Betting Pick: Wolverhampton -115
I like the Wolves on the money line as a short favorite at home against a team that is showing no signs of improvement.
