What Trueform says for Southampton vs Man City
Southampton may feel they just need to avoid a heavy defeat when hosting Manchester City in the final round of Premier League fixtures.
The Saints go into this game three points clear of Swansea and with a superior goal difference of nine.
That may make Mark Hughes focus on his defence and keeping the score down, rather than trying to get forward too much.
We’re kicking off our Southampton vs Man City betting predictions by taking 31/20 for an away win to nil.
A Look At Southampton’s Betting Odds
Southampton all-but guaranteed their survival when snatching a 1-0 success at Swansea on Tuesday night.
Substitute Manolo Gabbiadini scored the 72nd-minute winner in Wales, showing a poacher’s instinct to strike from close range.
Saints were also resilient in defence at Liberty Stadium and Oriol Romeu is targeting more of the same here.
“Mathematically, we are not safe, that’s the fact,” he said. “The odds will be on our side but it is football and they are Manchester City.
“They have good offensive players, so we won’t play that game thinking we are already safe.”
A Look At Manchester City’s Betting Odds
Manchester City broke three more Premier League records in their 3-1 win against Brighton on Wednesday night.
Pep Guardiola’s side are now on 97 points, meaning the first-ever 100-point haul remains possible with a victory at St Mary’s.
They also have the most goals and wins in a season, while the winning margin and goal difference records look set to fall too.
Guardiola said: “97 points, a lot of goals, a lot of wins – that’s a consequence of the season we have done. It’s good.
“Now it’s one more game, we’re going to try for 100 points and finish this almost perfect season in the Premier League.”
Raheem Sterling was rested in midweek and appeals at 7/2 to break the deadlock in our Southampton vs Man City betting tips.
