Betting tips and match preview | Barclays Premier League
Southampton welcome Crystal Palace to St Mary’s in the final game of the season for both sides, with Southampton desperately looking to end their season in the top seven with Palace looking towards their FA Cup final match against United.
The Saints come into this fixture on the back of an impressive 2-1 win away against Tottenham last weekend and that result has left them well placed to secure European football for the second successive season and keeping Ronald Koeman has to be a high priority for the club.
Southampton’s form in the Premier League this season has been excellent, despite an initial dip they have won 17 matches this season but their excellent form since the turn of the year has left them well placed and could result in another 7th placed finish.
They will face another hard task to keep hold of key players this summer, with Victor Wanyama, Sadio Mane and Graziano Pelle rumoured to be moving on as well as the manager Ronald Koeman, who has just 12 months left on his contract.
Southampton will be looking for their 18th win in 38 matches this season and their 11th win at home.
Palace Building For Final
Crystal Palace come into this match on the back of an excellent result last weekend in the Premier League following their 2-1 win against Stoke at Selhurst Park.
This has been an mixed season for Crystal Palace, they have won 11 matches this season and they have played some excellent football at times but they have had an appalling run of form since the start of this year and that has cost them a top ten position.
At one stage they were well in the mix for a European spot along with the likes of Stoke and Liverpool but their rapid decline due to injuries and loss of form saw them decline dramatically and they could end the season as low as 16th.
They do have the FA Cup Final against Manchester United to look forward to and that would end the season in fine style for the Eagles and for Alan Pardew. Their form in their last 6 matches has been mixed to say the least with two of every result.
They will be looking for their 12th win in 38 games this season and are looking to secure their 6th away win of the campaign.
Southampton head into this fixture with a record of four wins, one draw and one defeat in their last six matches. Palace have a record of two wins, two draws and two defeats in their last six matches.
Both teams are 1/1 on to score. The first goalscorer odds for Southampton are Charlie Austin, Graziano Pelle and Shane Long at 7/2 with Sadio Mane at 5/1. For Crystal Palace Connor Wickham is at 9/1 with Emmanuel Adebayor and Dwight Gayle at 10/1.
The last time that these two sides met at St Mary’s Southampton won 1-0 and the odds of the same result are 6/1.
