Prediction for the match Sheffield United – Southampton
“Sheffield” after eight rounds in the Championship is only in 15th place and so far the big question is the return of the team to the Premier League next season. The hosts score on average one and a half goals per match, but concede the same amount. At the gate at the “blades” experienced Robin Olsen, but even he is not able to correct defensive mistakes all the time. Over the past four head-to-head meetings, the “saints” have scored an average of 2.25 goals against Sheffield, so you can bet on IT2B (1.5) with odds
“Blades” started badly, now they should think about improving their results in the Championship and most likely will have to sacrifice the cup. “Southampton” the other day did not lose to “Manchester City” at “Etihad”, the team will be in high spirits and the head coach, perhaps even put the main team for this match. Perhaps the game will not end in regulation time, but we believe that the guests will be able to advance to the next stage of the cup. Forecast for the match – the passage of “Southampton” with odds 1.61.
