Wolverhampton vs Southampton | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
This is one of the most important games for both sides in this event. The Wolves need to win in order to go upwards in the standings and be around the zone which leads to the European scene. Meanwhile, the Saints are looking to get away from the bottom, and if they do not lose at Molineux, the red zone will be on a safe distance.
Wolves were eliminated from the EFL Cup back on Tuesday when they lost against Leicester after a penalty shoot-out. We haven’t seen any goals during the regular 90 minutes. The Saints were blown into pieces at Anfield, and 3:0 for Liverpool was in fact, a good result when looking how that one might end
The Wolves have enormous quality, and everyone who reads this text should have that on his mind. They are still inexperienced for playing in the Premiership, but as the time goes by, you will see that they are one hell of a team. Nuno Espirito Santo is one of the best tacticians in the whole league, and you probably saw that against the teams from Manchester. The Portuguese manager doesn’t care about the beauty of the game, only about the final result. You should see that when you look at the overall productivity of the matches, his team played this season. Latest 7 in all competitions concluded with fewer than three goals. Five of those fixtures saw both sides not to score.
The Saints won twice this season, and both wins came away from home. One in the EFL Cup against Brighton 0:1, and the second in the Premiership against Crystal Palace, 0:2. In general, when looking at their performances, we see that they rely upon a strong and tough defense. But in the majority of times, this gameplan is not good, and their back line often gets crushed early, which eventually leads to unconditional loss. Southampton doesn’t have any creativity or some individual in the midfield, who might organize offense apart from the counter-attacks, and that makes them dull to watch. Three out of last four away matches, finished with moderate efficiency, between 2 or 3 goals, have that on your mind.
Latest Team News

Wolverhampton vs Southampton | Top Betting Tip: Wolverhampton (1-0)
This is going to be a much tougher assignment for the hosts than the ones they had against Man City or Man Utd. You probably wonder how. Well, against Southampton, Wolves are going to be the ones who are attacking and have to breach the defense, which wasn’t the case in those mentioned matches. Anyway, this is not going to save Southampton from losing this match, because Wolves are much more organized and cohesive team than their opponents. Espirito Santo will study the behavior of the rival’s defense and find a weak spot, have no doubts about that. Now, about the overall efficiency, do not expect many goals. You saw the data that previous seven matches of the hosts finished with under 2.5 goals. Add on that the defensive-oriented guest, and you will see that another contest with less than three goals is ahead of us. The final prognosis, Wolverhampton – Southampton 1:0.
