Match: Swansea vs Southampton Competition: England – Premier League Time / Date: 22:00h / 8 May 2018 Venue : Libery Stadium
The race for the title is maybe over, but we can’t say same for the relegation spots where these two teams are involved and both fighting for their lives.
Swans failed to win in last round against The Cherries and lost with 1:0, that extend their winless run to seven games. At Liberty Stadium they have lost only one of their last six.
Meanwhile, Southampton have finally found their feet a bit. They have still won just two of their last 23 league games, but their 1-1 draw at Goodison Park on Saturday made it three games without defeat for them. In addition, it has transformed this game into one of the biggest of the season.
Wilfried Bony (Cruciate ligament injury), Leroy Fer (Achilles tendon surgery)
Steven Davis (Achilles tendon problems)
Southampton have won four, drawn one, and lost two of their last seven meetings with Swansea, although the south Wales club have won in four of their eight home games against The Saints.
Since both teams need points here ,they can’t stay back and wait for something to happen.I expect attacking football from this two sides and goals in both ends is very possible to happen.
-BTTS – 5/6 (@1.85)
Swansea who surprisingly look the most likely to get something. They may be in poor form at the moment but they have still won four of their last six home games in the league, not to mention the fact they have won all three of their home games against sides in the bottom six.
