The clash of the mid-table dwellers at St Mary’s will see Southampton welcome Newcastle United.
Rafa Benitez is taking the Magpies to the stadium at which Newcastle holds the worst record on any current Premier League clubs. Namely, Newcastle have won just once in the Premier League at Southampton and will also aim for their first win since 2012 and the return to England’s top flight.
In order to do so, Newcastle will need to find a solution for their problems in the attacking department, knowing they only scored seven goals in as many Premier League matches. The hosts have even the worse record than that, having only bagged five times thus far. All of these numbers make the 10/11 betting odds on Both teams NOT to score a reasonably valuable betting option.
The Saints have a great record against Newcastle at St Mary’s but the fact four of their last five home matches saw them fail to score a single goal are enough to offer some more backing to our betting choice here.
And the fact that Alan Shearer was still in the Newcastle United side that last won at Southampton – in combination with Magpies’ current goalscoring tally – is more than enough for you to head over to Betfred to back out a selection.
