Southampton News and Form
Southampton are still trending well towards safety as they are now five matches undefeated in the Premier League. They played out a somewhat controversial 1-1 draw against Burnley last weekend, which leaves them with back-to-back results in the EPL by that very scoreline. Their home form still leaves a lot to be desired in terms of successes as they are only at W2 D6 L4 at St Marys this season in the top flight. But they have earned four points from their last two league home games, with a win over Everton and a draw against Crystal Palace. There are certainly making themselves a lot harder to beat.
There are still some defensive issues their because they have no clean sheet in their last four games and just one in their last 15 league fixtures. Southampton have drawn all four home games played this season against sides currently 13th or lower in the table. The Saints have averaged just over a goal per game at home this season and 67% of their league fixtures at St Mary’s have ended up over 2.5 goals. Both teams have scored in all but one of Southampton’s last eight Premier League games.

Three of the last four meetings at St Mary’s have ended in a 1-0 scoreline
Cardiff News and Form
Cardiff beat Bournemouth 2-0 last time out which was a very welcome three points for them. It snapped a four-match sequence where they normally managed to pick up the one point. It has been a very tough season for the Bluebirds away from home in the top flight. They have managed to earn just a W1 D2 L9 record so far. The only positive to take from that is that all of their away points have been earned against sides currently in the bottom half of the table. Cardiff have scored just seven league away goals this season.
The Bluebirds have been struggling for goals lately as they have failed to score in four of their last seven. Across their 12 away league games, Cardiff have conceded 23 goals in total. They have picked up a clean sheet in 25% of the road games. Cardiff, however have conceded at least two goals in their last two away fixtures. Four of the six league victories that Cardiff have earned the season have only been by the one-goal margin. The second half periods of their away games have certainly been busier. Cardiff have scored 86% of their away goals after the half-time break, while they have conceded 70% of their away goals in the second half of fixtures. Only Fulham have a worse away record then Cardiff to this term
