Prediction Swansea vs Southampton

Thanks to an episode of COVID in Fairwood, Swansea City has been inactive in the championship for almost a month.

In truth, the leave may have come at the right time for the Swans: their form before the unexpected break from competitive football was below par.

Including the 1-4 jam at home against Nottingham Forest, Russell Martin’s side had lost three games on the trot, winning only once in six attempts.

Thus, Swansea fans now find their team in 17th position in the championship standings, a real drop from grace after a promising form at the start of the season. The Swans have games in hand at most teams in the division, however, and are hoping for a big Cup win to kick off their return to action.

Southampton are currently in 14th place in the Premier League. Manager Ralph Hasenhuttl has made his side hard to beat and, despite their relatively low league standings, the Saints will take great confidence from recent results, including a 2-3 away win over top-flight West Ham and a game. draw 1-1 at home. against Antonio Conte’s Tottenham.

Southampton’s offensive threats James Ward-Prowse and Armando Broja are also in good shape. The first scored three goals in three games and the second two in the same period. Another Saints player who will be worth watching if he appears is Nathan Redmond, who has scored seven goals (goals / assists) in his last seven Cup appearances.

The recent history between the Swans and the Saints also favors the visit side. Southampton have won seven of the last ten games played against their Welsh counterparts.

Despite memorable performances against Manchester City from Pep Guardiola in recent years, Swansea has also failed to win a cup against top opponents in 10 of his last 11 attempts – the latest victory at the expense of Manchester United in 2014.

It’s an FA Cup game so of course anything can happen. But pretty much everything points to a victory for the traveling saints. So if you are looking for a single bet on the moneyline, take the Ralph Hasenhuttl side at 3/4.
