Portsmouth (@4.6) vs Southampton (@1.72)

Our Prediction:

Southampton will win

Portsmouth – Southampton Match Prediction | 25-09-2019 14:45

Two second-half goals against QPR on the road proved to be more than enough to grant Portsmouth the ticket to the next round after their counterparts failed to reply with even one of their own. However, the hosts are without a win in their last five games in the league and have salvaged not more than three points from those clashes as well.

Every player wants the ball and has the confidence to change the course of the game. Their best scorer Curtis has only 2 goals, which is the best indicator for that. As we have already said, they are in a nice form and their fans have a lot of hope before this match. They would like to continue their run with a surprising win here in front of their home supporters. They love to play team football, where everyone is involved. Mostly because of that, I expect from them at least a goal in this match.

Portsmouth vs Southampton Head-To-Head Record

Its early days in the top-flight campaign, but already weve seen enough from the visitors to suggest that theyll have little trouble staying up this term. They were beaten 3-1 by Bournemouth on Friday, but Ralph Hasenhuttl is a stable choice as manager. He has already guided them clear of danger last term, while this season hes put together a three-game winning streak on the road with the Saints.

With just six points from seven games, they have fallen to just outside the drop zone in the third tier. Any hopes of rising back up the ranks to clash with Southampton seem to be on hold for the moment, especially with the visitors seemingly on their way to Premier League safety once again. Portsmouth were among the favourites for promotion this season, but they are at the wrong end of the table.

The last game was played a long time ago, so tradition doesnt mean a thing here. I looked at their recent performances and their styles of play, as well as other factors while I was crafting my selection. If we take everything I said, it targets the away team win, with both teams scoring due to the changeable form of both teams defense.

Southampton Team News

While the hosts have put a bit of form together in this competition, they have still won just two of their last six. Meanwhile, the Saints havent lost on the road in the Carabao Cup since a trip to Sheffield United in 2014. That run also saw them knockout Championship opposition in the last round, so we arent that hopeful for Portsmouth in this one. The visitors are aiming to continue their winning streak on the road this week.

Secondly, the visitors are a much more competitive side in comparison and will be making the trip to Fratton Park on the back of a very impressive three-match winning streak in their respective outings. Given that those clashes have also seen them win without conceding even a single goal, Southampton are the odds on favorites to come out on top.

A big game is ahead of us, in which bookmakers have listed Southampton as a solid favorite and that is something that I agree with. In this match preview, I will try to provide the best betting tips and correct score predictions based on my analysis of these two teams. Portsmouth vs Southampton prediction comes ahead of the 1/16 finals of Englands EFL cup match between these rivals. This game will be played on September 24th, at the Fratton Park in Portsmouth, England.

Goal Margins

Meanwhile, Portsmouth is unbeaten in its last 3 games on the road, drawing once during that period. Good luck to all of you out there yo yo! Meanwhile, the away team has won half of its last 2 matches while losing the remainder. The home side is winless in its last 2 matches, losing half of them. Portsmouth will play hosts to Southampton in this game in the English league cup. Southampton has won its last 3 games on the road & not conceded in any of them. Only downside is Southampton is winless in the last 4 meetings between the 2 clubs.

This happens when a match is suspended, posponed, or cancelled e.g. a common void bet occurs in tennis when a player retires through injury. Void bets occur when the bet is not decided as a win or loss and the stake is returned to the player. Note: bookmakers' policies on voided matches changes so we always recommend players to check the specific terms of bookmakers they bet with to ensure they understand under what circumstances they void bets.

After losing to their top-flight south-coast rivals on Friday, Southampton are aiming for better against their biggest rivals. The first Hampshire Derby for seven years takes place this week, with both sides bidding to secure their place in the next round of the Carabao Cup. Pompey are on a solid run, with two wins from two without conceding a goal in this competition, but will that be enough to edge out their top-flight opponents?

When we are talking about form, we have to know that Southamptons opponents are much better rivals than of Portsmouths. By looking at all of this, I can see Southampton winning toughly with both teams scoring. As of now, both teams to score looks like the safest bet here. They are at 11th place with 7 points from 6 games, having a hard time scoring goals with just 6. On the other side, Southampton started their campaign in a changeable form this year. Still, Southampton has only one loss in their last 5 games, which is nice.

The last time these two teams have played a Head-To-Head match was way back in 2012. Portsmouth is playing great football right now. Their offense is scoring goals like it is nothing as they have scored 11 in that period, so they will love to continue their remarkable run. Since then, everything has changed so looking at the tradition of these two is worthless. They are currently standing in 18th place in the League One table, but they have played 3 games less than others. They are unbeaten in 6 consecutive games, which is a pretty nice feat for them now.

Portsmouth head into Tuesdays football match following a 1-0 loss to Wycombe Wanderers and seeing that Southampton are desperate to bounce back from a 3-1 loss to Bournemouth, we do not believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts. Portsmouth play host to Southampton at their Fratton Park in the League Cup last 32. The Pompey made a very slow start to the season, with the team recording only one win in seven games in the League One.
