The Wolves will be playing hosts to the Saints, as the latter travel to Wolverhampton in match week 22 of the Premier League 2021-22.
Both the teams have shown some decent form in the run-up to this game. The Wolves are 4 points clear of Southampton, and are currently in 8th place, having played one game less. They have won 2 out of the last Premier League games, including one against Manchester United. The team has also convincingly won its FA Cup fixture against Sheffield United and will be high on confidence.
Southampton had to wait for 8 games before scoring its first victory of the season but has picked up form since then. The Saints have clawed up to 11th place, and need to collect 3 points from this game to move to the 9th spot. The team has lost just once in its last 5 Premier League games. Coming into this contest, they have won 2 back to back matches, a 4-1 Premier League win against Brentford, and a 3-2 win against Swansea in the FA Cup.
Match prediction and betting tips for Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Southampton Premier League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Molineux Stadium, Wolverhampton, on the 15th of January 2022.
Both the teams may miss out on some key players for this game. Wolves gaffer Bruno Lage will be missing Pedro Neto, who will probably sit out the whole of January due to a knee injury, and so will Yerson Mosquera, who has a back problem. Hee Chang Hwang and Willy Bolly also might miss the game this weekend.
Hasenhuttl on the other hand may miss as many as 7 players for this game, including Kyle Walker-Peters, who has picked up COVID. Injured players Alex McCarthy, Armando Broja, William Smallbone, and Valentino Liveramento are set to miss out too. Moussa Djenepo had left for the AFCON.
The Wolves haven’t conceded many goals this season, and the games involving the Wolves have been low-scoring ones, we expect both the teams to score at least once, and the Wolves will come out on the top.
Bet on Wolverhampton to win.
Three out of the previous four matches between these two teams have seen under 2.5 goals being scored. In general, the Wolves and Southampton have both struggled to get goals. We just don't see this match as being one that will be hugely exciting or full of goals. A bet on Under 2.5 goals for this match seems like a relatively safe bet.
