The match is over. Score: 1-3. Southampton 7.50| Draw 4.50| Liverpool 1.44 Bet Now With Sportingbet Predictions | Betting Tips | Odds | Statistics Southampton’s bid to avoid the drop has taken a major step forward in recent weeks but the visit of title contenders Liverpool will provide Ralph Hasenhüttl with arguably his sternest test yet. Predictions Liverpool are riding high after victory over Tottenham at the weekend in a result that was a major statement of intent. Manchester City may still harbour the edge with many online betting sites, but the Reds head to south coast full of confidence, vigour, and the knowledge that on paper at least, they are far superior to their opposition. That is because you have to go back to March 2016 for the last time the Reds conceded a Premier League goal against the Saints, though they did lose both legs of 2017 League Cup semi-final 1-0 to Southampton. Since then, Liverpool’s defence has only grown stronger and that may be an ominous sign for a side who have the sixth worse home defensive record in the league against the side with the best away defensive record. Three wins in their last four has enabled Southampton a little breathing room in the relegation scrap so few would forgive them for having a day off when there are clearly more important games coming up so anything other than a Liverpool win would be a huge surprise. The Reds have scored two or more goals in their last four games in all competitions and scored two without reply on their last visit to the St Mary’s Stadium. With that in mind, another steady 2-0 away win is the best way to go in this game when it comes to betting with famous sportsbooks for match result value. 1×2 Prediction Score Prediction Betting Tips Liverpool to win to nil The Reds have the best away record in the Premier League this season and have not conceded a league goal against Southampton in their last five meetings. 8 Liverpool to score exactly 2 goals Liverpool scored exactly two goals in their last away Premier League outing (against Fulham) and exactly two the last time they visited St Mary’s.
