Southampton v Leeds United Match Preview & Trends

Will we see another odd number of goals at St. Marys?

On-loan forward, Theo Walcott will be hoping to play in front of the Southampton fans as they return in this fixture. Walcott came through the Saints academy before joining Arsenal to launch his senior career. He gas come full-circle now and will cherish the opportunity before his loan from Everton expires at the end of the season. Ralf Hassenhuttl will be keen to put smiles on the fans faces after a turbulent campaign.

Marcelo Bielsa has achieved his pre-season objective of keeping Leeds in the Premier League upon their highly anticipated return to the top flight. The Argentine has established a free-flowing style of football and demonstrated that he can change tactics when required as the so-called big 6 have all failed to win at Elland Road this season. His stubbornness and at times, blatant refusal to change the way his side plays has at times cost them points but overall has one them many plaudits and ensured Leeds are entertaining to watch.

A large part of this can be attributed to the goalscoring of striker, Patrick Bamford. A career journeyman, Bamford has often had the finger pointed at him that he could not cut it at the top level, something that he has emphatically proven wrong this season. With record signing Rodrigo hitting two goals n the last game, could the two play together upfront or will Bielsa once again stick to his guns?

Southampton conceded at least 1 goal in each of their last 9 home matches and both teams have scored in Southampton’s last 7 games at St.Marys Stadium. 9 of the last 10 games between Southampton and Leeds have ended up with an odd number of goals. Southampton have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 9 home games and both teams have scored in Southampton’s last 7 home fixtures.

Leeds Utd have scored in 78% of their away matches and have outscored their opponents in both halves in each of their last 2 games. 64% of Leeds Utd’s conceded goals occurred in the first half whilst Bielsa’s team have outscored their opponents in both halves in each of their last 2 games. Should Leeds Utd win, they would increase their lead over Southampton to 13 points in the league table, and it would be The White’s 19th away match without a draw and Saints’ 10th consecutive home match with at least 1 goal conceded.
