Free Premier League Soccer Prediction Swansea City vs. Southampton

Team News Swansea City: With just 2 games remaining for the season, Swansea City looks on the verge of relegation this season. The Tuesday’s game between these two teams is going to a battle for survival in the league for next season. Swansea City is in a bad shape sitting right on the edge of the relegation zone on 18th place with 33 points. They have lost their last 3 games straight and have drawn 2 in their last 5 outings. They show no signs of improvement and will be relegated by the end of the season unless they pull off a miracle in their last game. Swansea has managed to score only 27 goals this season while conceding 53 in this season. Their top scorer is Jordan Ayew with just 7 goals. They have to win this one in order to get out of the relegation zone. In their last 11 games against Southampton, Swansea has failed to score on 7 occasions in the Premier League.

Team News Southampton: Southampton is not doing that great this season as they sit right above Swansea City on 17th spot with 33 points, same as that of Swansea. They are just ahead on goal difference. This clash at the bottom of the table will be interesting as the one who loses this game will probably come back or stay in the relegation zone going into their last game. A major blow to Southampton come in the form of a red card that was handed to Maya Yoshida in his last away trip to Everton making him unavailable for this game. Also, Lemina (hamstring) remains a doubt for this game. Southampton has defeated Swansea 6 times, drawn 3 and lost just 2 times in their last 11 Premier League encounters. Mark Hughes has already defeated Swansea in the Premier League this season back in December when he was managing Stoke City.

Prediction By Cover The Spread 365

Overall, Swansea City as well Southampton both look shaky going into this game. Both are struggling to get goals and have conceded badly over the season. Although the head-to-head stats are in Southampton’s favor, suspension and injury can be an issue for Southampton. A draw seems a fair result for this game taking the stats into consideration. But this being a battle for survival no team will like to settle for a draw as it will leave them right where they currently are. Southampton should win this game by a narrow margin.

Pick: Southampton 7/5
