Betting Tip: Under 2.5 Goals @ 5/8 with ladbrokes

When Southampton take to the road, you don’t get many goals being scored. Ronald Koeman’s side have had the following scorelines away from home recently:

0-1, 0-0, 0-1, 1-0, 2-1, 1-0.

Therefore, we’re happy to go with a low goal count at the Vitality Stadium, with Bournemouth slowly edging their way from trouble and another point would keep clear daylight between them and the bottom three.

The Cherries played some excellent football at Vicarage Road on Saturday when drawing 0-0, with Heurelho Gomes pulling off some smart saves to prevent the Dorset team coming away with three points.

Eddie Howe will have to contend without Junior Stanislas for this encounter, although the return of Max Gradel is a boost for the remainder of the campaign, with the Frenchman returning to action against Watford for the first time since August.

Southampton’s excellent run of six clean sheets ended against Chelsea on Saturday, with the Saints now battening down the hatches and looking to prosper with their 3-5-2 formation.

Victor Wanyama continues to be suspended after that red card against West Ham United, although Oriel Romeu and Steve Davis will ensure that the visitors remain compact in this clash and a goalless draw could easily happen.
