Southampton vs Liverpool Prediction and Match Preview
Saturday, August 17 – 10:00 EST – St. Mary’s Stadium
Liverpool had an excellent run last season as they finished in second place just one point behind Manchester City, not to mention their UEFA Champions League title win. They will be going into this one with lots of confidence. Expect Liverpool to be all over Southampton. Liverpool have won their last 4 meetings against Southampton, scoring 11 and only conceding one.
Southampton started last season poorly, winning just 1 of their first 16 matches before eventually finishing in 16th place, just barely avoiding relegation. They will not be happy with their performance in their opening match where they suffered a 3-0 loss to Burnley. Southampton will be looking to come out very strong here and will be looking for a win. They feel confident they will improve in Hasenhuettl’s first full season.
Overall, Liverpool are without a doubt the far superior side. They should not have any problems beating Southampton on Saturday. Their dominance against Norwich in the opening matchday, demonstrated that they have what it takes to easily beat any minor team. Also, they have several goal scoring options always available at their disposal. You can just feel that most of their matches will be filled with goals, with the likes of Salah, Mane, and Origi in their lineup. With that being said, we are expecting another goal feast at St. Mary’s stadium.
