Southampton vs Watford: Match Preview and Prediction
Southampton enjoyed 74% of the possession in that game and two of their ten shots on goal were on target. Adam Armstrong (38′) and Jan Bednarek (4′) scored the goals for Southampton. Rotherham United’s opponents had eight shots on goal, none of which were on target.
Their most recent performance demonstrates how much respect the Southampton defence deserves. Because Southampton hasn’t surrendered much to the opposition, they have allowed only three goals to enter the goal over their last six games.
Watford will be looking to bounce back after suffering a defeat to Cardiff City in their most recent Championship match.
Watford had a 62% possession rate and none of their 16 total shots on goal were on target during that game. Cardiff City, on the other hand, made 10 shots on goal, only two of which were on target. Josh Bowler scored for Cardiff City in the 43rd minute.
The numbers speak for themselves: in five of their last six games, Watford has allowed goals and given up five goals in total. Watford could really need strengthening their defence. But that kind of pattern won’t necessarily continue into this game.
