Under 2.5 goals at Southampton vs Burnley 4/5 for Saturday’s Premier League contest
Competition: Premier League
Market: Under 2.5 goals
Odds: 4/5 @ 888sport
In a matchup that could prove to be another cagey affair this weekend, Southampton will host Burnley on Saturday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, managing to pick up what was a much-needed victory when returning from the international break, Southampton will be desperate to build off of that momentum. In their opening eight Premier League matchups so far this season, they have recorded just a single win, four draws and three defeats, scoring six and conceding 10 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of seven from a possible 24 and sat down in 15th, it should be noted that the Saints hold the third-worst attacking return. As for their recent run of results, managing to land what was a welcomed 1-0 win against Leeds on home soil, that result brought an end to their seven-match Premier League winless run. Likewise, it should also be highlighted that Saturday’s hosts have managed to score more than a single goal in just one of their opening eight top-flight contests.
As for the visitors, enduring what has been a hugely worrying start to the 2021/22 campaign, Burnley find themselves in the midst of a relegation scrap. In their opening eight Premier League matchups so far this season, they are yet to record a single victory, with three draws against five defeats, scoring five and conceding 13 in return. Now one of just three Premier League sides who are still waiting for their first win, it should also be noted that the Clarets hold the second-worst attacking tally in the division. As for their recent run of results, last seen getting hit with a 2-0 defeat away at Manchester City, Burnley have failed to win any of their last 11 top-flight contests continuing on from last season. Drawing a blank in three of their last four matchups, we’re backing under 2.5 goals on Saturday afternoon.
