Southampton have some momentum for the first time in 2021 and will look to continue this run of form with a win against a tough Leeds side.
The last time these two met, Leeds put in 3 and won comfortably. They destroyed Southampton on the counter-attack last time out and will believe they can do so again this time.
Saints have scored 3 goals in each of their last two matches. Albeit it was against weaker competition but that confidence can go a long way.
Let us see how both teams can win this match and claim 3 points.
How Southampton Will Win
Southampton will be high on confidence coming into this one after two straight wins in the league. They will want to finish as high as possible on the table and will need to win this game for that to happen.
I think we will see a heavily rotated side to face Leeds with a lot of youngsters but that could play in Southampton’s favor. The young players will want to prove themselves as options for next season so they will be playing hard and could really take it to Leeds.
Nathan Tella will have a large role in the match and if he is able to either score or assist (or both) I like the Saints’ chances at winning this match.
How Leeds Will Win
Leeds can be absolutely devastating on the counter-attack and are one of the most high-energy teams in the league. They beat Saints with the counter the first go around and will look to do the same this time.
Leeds currently sit 10th on the table with an outside shot of finishing in a European competition position. They still have a reason to play and will look at this match as one they are supposed to win.
I think this will be a fun match to watch and there could be 4 or more goals in this one.
Southampton 2-2 Leeds
We are in for a fun match here and it could be the first to 3 wins this one.
