Southampton has failed to win any of their last six Premier League matches, surrendering 14 goals in the process, following their 1-0 triumph against Aston Villa on Bonfire Night.
Southampton earned a valuable point on the road in midweek, drawing 2-2 against Crystal Palace thanks to goals from Armando Borja and James Ward-Prowse. It does mean they have gone six games without a win, with four of those ending in a draw.
Brentford did not play in the middle of the week, so their last game was on Friday night, when they came from behind to beat Watford 2-1. It means they’ve only lost one of their last five games, accumulating eight points.
The Bees have drawn two of their past three away games and have gone four games without a win. The information displayed will be completed by previous results as well as the current score.

- Southampton, England’s St. Mary’s Stadium
After losing 3-0 to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium last weekend, the Saints returned to London for their match against Crystal Palace on Wednesday, but Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side were unable to claim all three points in a match they had hoped to win.
With corona virus-related postponements affecting teams near the bottom of the standings this week, Southampton has moved up to 15th position, six points ahead of 18th-placed Burnley, who have two games in hand.
Southampton has only played Brentford once in the last decade, losing a 2-0 EFL Cup meeting at St Mary’s in September 2020. Securing all three points on home soil this time would provide Hasenhuttl’s team a much-needed lift before facing West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur in their final two games of 2021.
Brentford fans have been looking forward to hosting 20-time English top-flight champions Manchester United to the Brentford Community Stadium since they were promoted to the Premier League for the first time in their history last season.
Bees’ fans, on the other hand, will have to wait a little longer to face the Red Devils after Tuesday’s scheduled match was postponed due to a corona virus epidemic at Old Trafford.
The Premier League Board has announced that the match would be rescheduled in due course, but Thomas Frank will now focus on their next top-flight match, which will be played away at St Mary’s, where they have never lost in four prior matches.
Brentford, who are presently 12th in the rankings, travel to Southampton on Saturday with eight points from their past five league games, including a thrilling 2-1 victory over Watford at home on Friday night.
The Bees were on the verge of losing 1-0 against the Hornets, but Pontus Jansson’s close-range header in the 84th minute cancelled out Emmanuel Dennis’s first-half opener, and Bryan Mbeumo’s penalty-kick winner in the 96th minute gave them their fifth league win of the season.
Brentford has spent just over 13 weeks in the top half of the table this season, which is a remarkable achievement for a freshly promoted club. If other results go their way, a victory this weekend may propel them back into the top ten.
PREDICTIONS FOR SOUTHAMPTON VS BRENTFORD
Three of the Saints’ last four games at this site have finished in a draw, as have three of their last four games overall. Brentford has drawn two of their past three away games, and with nothing to discern between the teams, a draw appears to be the best choice.
Lyanco may not be the first name that springs to mind when considering a goalscorer, but he is a good bet. The centre-back was given two chances from set-pieces in midweek, and while neither of them was successful, he is getting in the correct areas and, at these odds; he appears to be worth picking.
Top Three Predictions for Southampton versus Brentford:
Three of the last six matches between these two clubs, both competitive and non-competitive, have ended in draws. Three of Southampton’s past four league games have finished in draws, while two of Brentford’s last three away trips have also resulted in draws, so it’s easy to understand why we’re betting on a draw here.
On Saturday, there’s a decent probability both teams will score, as they have in three of the last six meetings between Southampton and Brentford. Southampton has scored in four of their past six Premier League games, while Brentford has scored in four of their last six.
In terms of the ultimate result, we believe Saturday’s match will end in a 1-1 tie. Southampton hasn’t kept a clean sheet in their past six games, but they’ve only failed to score in two of them, while Brentford has drew two of their last three away games and has proven difficult to beat on the road, so we think a 1-1 draw is the most likely result this weekend.
