Swansea vs Southampton Soccer Prediction Today
The Welsh have not been able to win for more than a month. Their most recent success was on March 3 against West Ham at home, 4-1. Since then, they have drawn three times and suffered five defeats. One of them took him from the FA Cup – 3-0 to Tottenham in Wales. For the Premier League, on Saturday, April 5, Swansea picked up from Bournemouth, in the rival’s stadium, by 1 to 0.
Parked in the 33 points (eight wins, nine draws and 19 losses) dropped to the eighteenth position, the first in the relegation zone. The score is exactly the same as Southampton, who went on to beat Everton in Liverpool 1-0, also on Saturday, but took the draw in extra time. The Wales team, however, takes a disadvantage when the tiebreaker criteria are used.
That makes the victory on Tuesday considered almost mandatory. However, the team has a theoretical advantage if an evaluation is made considering the thirty-eighth and last round. Swansea will host Stoke, already downgraded to the Premier League Championship, on Sunday, May 13, while Southampton will face Manchester City, winner of the 2017/2018 season, the owner of the best attack and defense least cast from the tournament.
The composition of the table may even cause the Portuguese coach Carlos Carvalhal not adopt a more daring stance in the confrontation of this Tuesday with the reversal of the scenario on the last day. However, this would mean ceasing to depend on your own results. To not have to cheer for rivals’ stumbling blocks, victory is needed.
In this quest, the coach has injury problems to manage. Defender Kyle Bartley (five games in the 2017/2018 English Championship without a goal) and Kyle Naughton (33 games, no goal) are in the medical department; the midfielder Leroy Fer (20 games, one goal); and striker Wilfred Bony (15 games, two goals). Of that group, according to English news reports, the one who is most likely to receive the green light to act is Naughton. If this occurs it should be listed as the owner.
With one player down, Southampton held the win until the 51st minute of the second half against Everton at the opponents’ home when Davies sent the ball into the net, leveling the game 1-1.
Although the team has managed to get out of the relegation zone, the table in the final stretch is not the most favorable, which turns the game on Tuesday as practically a decision. Which does not leave the fans very optimistic. Acting as a visitor, Southampton only managed two wins in 18 matches. The other 16 games were divided between draws and defeats.
The past certainly haunts Welsh coach Mark Hughes, who knows that neither can be considered a good result, as it would require the team to score in the game against favorite Manchester City.
In addition, he will still have to deal with the absence of Japanese defender Maya Yoshida (23 games in the 2017/2018 English Championship). The absolute holder of the team, he was sent off against Everton and will have to comply with suspension. Probably will not return to act next season.
Defenders Steven Davis (23 games in the 2017/2018 English Championship, three goals) and Mario Lemina (25 games, one goal) are still doubtful for the match. They are in the process of injury recovery. Davis must be vetoed for the match, but Lemina has a chance of being released. But it still depends on conducting further exams.
