Our Prediction:

Southampton will win

Portsmouth – Southampton Match Prediction | 25-09-2019 14:45

Every player wants the ball and has the confidence to change the course of the game. Their best scorer Curtis has only 2 goals, which is the best indicator for that. As we have already said, they are in a nice form and their fans have a lot of hope before this match. They would like to continue their run with a surprising win here in front of their home supporters. They love to play team football, where everyone is involved. Mostly because of that, I expect from them at least a goal in this match.

despite the gulf in class here. They should have too much quality for a side struggling in the third tier, while we think that Southampton are well valued for the win. We are going with an away win in this encounter, as the Saints have had plenty of solid runs in this competition in recent years. Were backing the away win, while a 2-1 victory for the visitors is our correct score pick.

Two second-half goals against QPR on the road proved to be more than enough to grant Portsmouth the ticket to the next round after their counterparts failed to reply with even one of their own. However, the hosts are without a win in their last five games in the league and have salvaged not more than three points from those clashes as well.

Portsmouth head into Tuesdays football match following a 1-0 loss to Wycombe Wanderers and seeing that Southampton are desperate to bounce back from a 3-1 loss to Bournemouth, we do not believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts. The Pompey made a very slow start to the season, with the team recording only one win in seven games in the League One. Portsmouth play host to Southampton at their Fratton Park in the League Cup last 32.

Portsmouth head into Tuesdays football match following a 1-0 loss to Wycombe Wanderers and seeing that Southampton are desperate to bounce back from a 3-1 loss to Bournemouth, we do not believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts. Portsmouth play host to Southampton at their Fratton Park in the League Cup last 32. The Pompey made a very slow start to the season, with the team recording only one win in seven games in the League One.

While the hosts have put a bit of form together in this competition, they have still won just two of their last six. Meanwhile, the Saints havent lost on the road in the Carabao Cup since a trip to Sheffield United in 2014. That run also saw them knockout Championship opposition in the last round, so we arent that hopeful for Portsmouth in this one. The visitors are aiming to continue their winning streak on the road this week.

The visitors have put together some away form, while they will be up for this derby clash. After all, Southampton are seemingly taking this competition seriously. Portsmouth seemingly caught Birmingham and QPR cold in previous rounds; the Saints wont make the same mistake. Portsmouth are winless in five games in League One, while we cant see them matching the Saints in this clash.

When we are talking about form, we have to know that Southamptons opponents are much better rivals than of Portsmouths. By looking at all of this, I can see Southampton winning toughly with both teams scoring. As of now, both teams to score looks like the safest bet here. They are at 11th place with 7 points from 6 games, having a hard time scoring goals with just 6. On the other side, Southampton started their campaign in a changeable form this year. Still, Southampton has only one loss in their last 5 games, which is nice.

Secondly, the visitors are a much more competitive side in comparison and will be making the trip to Fratton Park on the back of a very impressive three-match winning streak in their respective outings. Given that those clashes have also seen them win without conceding even a single goal, Southampton are the odds on favorites to come out on top.

Portsmouth vs Southampton Prediction

It was already said, their offense is not doing so well, right now. That will have to change if they want something from this game. By looking at the more positive things, they do not have injuries or suspensions prior to this game. Still, they look like a much stronger club than their rivals today and should win this game. They have an inconsistent form, where they get some points where they arent supposed to, and then lose at home against a waker club in front of their fans at home.
