Wolves vs. Southampton – Result prediction (19.10.2019)

Preview and Teams Comparison.

Wolves have won their last two home meetings with Southampton in all competitions, having won none of their previous nine against them at Molineux (D5 L4). Buoyed by their shock 2-0 win at long odds versus Manchester City to record back-to-back Premier League (PL) victories for the first time this season, Wolverhampton Wanderers (W2, D4, L2) will now look to kick on once again. Notably, they have conceded the opening goal in three of their four PL home games so far, though equalised on two of those occasions. Wolves have won their last three games in all competitions, keeping a clean sheet each time. They last won four in a row in April 2018. This will be Wolves’ 100th Premier League home game (W34 D24 L41). Whatever the result, only West Brom (45) and Crystal Palace (44) will have lost more of their first 100 home games in the competition than Wolves. In fact Wolves have conceded the lion’s share of their goals before half-time (63.64%) whilst scoring the majority of their PL goals after the break (81.82%). Coincidentally, the hosts have pulled back to finish level after losing at half-time on two occasions this season.

Visiting coach Ralph Hasenhüttl has won his only prior encounter with Nuno Santo’s Wolves (3-1). However, Santo did win each of his first two encounters with Southampton by a 2-0 scoreline, both of which saw a goalless first-half. Southampton have won three of their four Premier League meetings with Wolves (L1). All four meetings between the two sides in the competition have been won by a margin of two or more goals. Generally good value for a lead, Southampton have not yet shipped the equaliser after going ahead in the PL this term, though that’s only happened on two occasions. Additionally, Southampton are often willing betting outsiders, and have a loss rate of 54.84% in such games since the beginning of last season (W8, D6, L17). Southampton have lost their last three Premier League games, last losing four in a row in April 2018. However, Saints have won a league-high 86% of their Premier League points on the road this season (6/7).
