Leeds vs Southampton Prediction and Odds: Southampton To Win
Southampton will try to get back to winning ways when they host Leeds United in the Premier League this Saturday.
In the last match, a late surge by Chelsea saw Southampton crumbling under pressure as the Blues got away with a 3-1 win over the Saints. Leeds United, on the other hand, got their first win of the campaign as they registered a slender 1-0 win over Watford in the last match.
With the end of Gameweek 7, Southampton sits at 17th position in the Premier League table. They have managed four draws and have lost 3 of their last 7 matches. Leeds United with their first win of the season in Gameweek 7 is in 16th position. They have 3 draws, 3 defeats and 1 win in 7 matches.
Saturday’s match will be an opportunity for Leeds to score their 2nd win of the season and for Southampton, they may see the first win of this season.

Leeds vs Southampton Prediction and Odds: Recent Form
The Saints are hanging over a thread. Ralph Hasenhuttl hasn’t been able to guide his team to a win so far this campaign. They did manage to hold both Manchester City and Manchester United but have failed to maintain their momentum in the remaining games.
Four draws and three losses don’t bode well with their capability and they need to find their form soon.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side has been unable to match their last season’s standards but their morale-boosting win over the Hornets is likely to provide them with more belief.
Leeds vs Southampton Prediction and Odds: Preview
Leeds United and Southampton are adrift of two points and a win could be huge for either of them.
A number of Leeds players are still recuperating from injuries as the likes of Robin Koch, Luke Ayling and Patrick Bamford are yet to kick a ball.
For Southampton, Che Adams is expected to be fit for the Leeds game. The Saints forward injured himself during the international break while playing for his country Scotland.
Another loss would pile more pressure on Hasenhuttl. He is already facing the wrath for Southampton’s dismal start to the season and he needs to inspire the players to get it going on the pitch.
Southampton CEO Martin Semmens insisted everything relies on the Austrian manager when it comes to Southampton’s survival hopes.
Yes, it is always on him. He would say that ultimately, everything sits with him. The responsibility from how we perform on match day is with him and he is the one in front of the media and standing there on the touchline taking responsibility. So whether we give him what he wants or whether we don’t, he still feels that pressure.
We talk about strengthening with two players for every position, not because we are hungry to spend money or to have more players, but it is just the right way to run a professional team.”
Leeds vs Southampton Prediction and Odds: Why Southampton Can Win
- Southampton have shown some early signs of recovery in the last few matches.
