Football Betting Tips: Southampton vs Huddersfield Town

Two teams locked in mid-table meet at St Mary’s with both sides focusing on avoiding being dragged into a relegation battle as the New Year looms. Huddersfield picked up a crucial win at Watford last time out and continue to establish themselves as a real threat in the Premier League whilst Southampton have had a tough run of fixtures and need to see results and performances improve over the congested festive period.

The Saints have had an inconsistent campaign and subsequently find themselves in 12th place in the Premier League – only 3 points above the bottom 3. Maurcio Pellegrino’s men have only registered 17 goals this season which is a real concern and although string showings against Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City only yielded 1 point – the Saints look to have their defence in order currently.

Charlie Austin holds the most potent threat for the Saints and his tally of 5 goals will need to be improved upon if their league position is to improve too.

Huddersfield Town

The Terriers picked up a famous 4-1 win over Watford last time out to boost their relegation fears and pull them 6 points clear of safety. David Wagner has engineered a strong playing style, built from the back, which most teams have struggled to deal with this season.

Laurent Depoitre has notched 4 league goals for Huddersfield this season and looks to be real focal point for the Terriers up front.

Head to Head

The Saints and the Terriers share the head to head bragging rights with 11 wins each from their 25 previous meetings with another 3 games ending as draws. One of those draws took place earlier in the season, as the pair shared a 0-0 draw the John Smith’s Stadium in a very cagey affair.
