What Trueform says for Huddersfield vs Southampton
Ralph Hasenhuttl enjoyed a great win over Arsenal in his first home match and Southampton could be worth following at Huddersfield this weekend.
That thrilling 3-2 victory helped Saints climb above Town in the Premier League table, with the Terriers now second from bottom after four straight defeats.
Momentum is a huge factor in football and 3/2 for an away win gets the nod as our initial Huddersfield vs Southampton prediction.
A Look At Huddersfield Town’s Betting Odds
Huddersfield dominated for long periods of last week’s clash with Newcastle at John Smith’s Stadium but failed to capitalise on having 74 per cent of the possession in a 1-0 loss.
Salomon Rondon struck the winner in the 55th minute and Town lacked quality in the final third without injured playmaker Aaron Mooy.
David Wagner tried to remain upbeat, stating: “We did not have clear-cut chances but how the players played, their bravery and intensity to be on the front foot, was great.”
The Terriers do struggle to find a cutting edge up front, but had managed to hit the target in each of their three previous home fixtures.
Looking at the Huddersfield vs Southampton odds, we think 9/2 for an away win and both teams to score is tempting, especially with Saints now trying to adopt a more open gameplan.
Last Huddersfield line-up: Lossl, Kongolo, Lowe, Jorgensen, Schindler, Hadergjonaj, Hogg, Bacuna, Billing, Pritchard, Depoitre.
Huddersfield striker Steve Mounie is back in contention after suspension. Winger Rajiv van La Parra (back) will be monitored, but midfielders Aaron Mooy, Danny Williams (both knee) and Abdelhamid Sabiri (shoulder), plus defender Tommy Smith (hamstring) are out.
A Look At Southampton’s Betting Odds
Southampton ended a run of 12 Premier League games without a win in some style when Charlie Austin’s 85th-minute header finally saw off Arsenal at St Mary’s Stadium.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan twice levelled for the Gunners to cancel out headers from Danny Ings, but a late winner sent the home fans wild.
Hasenhuttl said: “It’s what I wanted to feel when I came to the Premier League, this atmosphere after the game and to celebrate such a moment is something very special for me.
“To come back again and again and again, it was amazing because it showed us we have the character to face problems and to make the next step.”
There has always been a feeling that Saints do have the attacking firepower to get out of trouble, with Sunday’s goalscorers backed up by the likes of Shane Long, Nathan Redmond and Stuart Armstrong.
Former Liverpool forward Ings has proven he can also perform on the road this term, netting in four of his six away games, so 4/1 for him to open the scoring is added to our Huddersfield vs Southampton betting tips.
Last Southampton line-up: McCarthy, Yoshida, Vestergaard, Targett, Bednarek, Valery, Romeu, Armstrong, Redmond, Hojbjerg, Ings.
HUDDERSFIELD 0-1 Newcastle
SOUTHAMPTON 3-2 Arsenal – Danny Ings (2), Charlie Austin
Head-to-head: Southampton 1-1 Huddersfield, Huddersfield 0-0 Southampton
