Crystal Palace vs Southampton Prediction and Match Preview
Crystal Palace vs Southampton Predictions and Free Tips from our expert tipsters when the teams go head-to-head in English FA Cup on Saturday, 7 January 2023.
Crystal Palace are in great shape at the moment. They are gunning for a top-ten spot as of now in the Premier League, and they are also on a superb run of results at home this season. Of their total three losses here, two came against Arsenal, and Chelsea.
Meanwhile, Southampton are by far the worst team in the entire English top flight at the moment. They are placed bottom-most in the table, and if they keep up this charade long enough, they are getting the boot to Championship.
Crystal Palace recorded a 1-0 win in the latest encounter, which took place just two months back. They have clearly been the better team in recent h2h meetings, and are unbeaten at this venue since 2020.
Not only are Southampton placed bottom-most in the English top flight. They managed just 3 wins from their 17 games, and they let in the most number of goals in the competition, barring a single squad.
Moreover, they have a poor h2h record against this rival recently, and most of all, they have relegation to worry about.
Palace seem like an obvious pick for the win here.
Palace are not a team that normally scored a lot of goals. Most of their wins are by narrow margins, and even the latest h2h meeting against this opponent had ended in a 1-0 win for them.
It is unlikely that we will see a lot of goals this weekend at the Selhurst Park.
Southampton are at a total disadvantage here. They have been one of the weakest offenses in the entire league, and they will have to deal with the determined defense of Palace. Most possibly the hosts are keeping a clean sheet.
The guests have greater things to worry about in the form of relegation. A loss this Saturday might not be the end of the world for them.
