Our prediction for this Championship match:
Home Park will host Saturday’s football game between Plymouth and Southampton, the two top-table sides. Plymouth made a promising start to the season, with the team beating Huddersfield Town at home, while sharing the spoils with Watford and they must be high on confidence ahead of the visit of Southampton. All Cooper, Galloway, and Gillesphey missed the round 2 clash and the trio is unlikely to feature against the Saints.
Meanwhile, the visitors played out a thrilling 4-4 draw with Norwich City at the weekend. Southampton have been scoring goals for fun of late and seeing that Plymouth are capable of finding the net in front of home fans, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. As for the visiting side, Che Adams is pushing for a start after scoring as a substitute against the Canaries, while both Armel Bella-Kotchap and Juan Larios are sidelined with injuries.
Highlighted Team (Southampton):
Southampton are an English football club that have been playing their home games at St Mary's Stadium since 2001. The Saints were based at The Dell in the past and the capacity of Southampton’s new stadium is 32,505. Southampton wear red and white striped shirts and the colour of the team’s away kit is navy and green.
The Saints have yet to win the Premier League trophy, but they did well to clinch the FA Cup title back in 1976, while participating in the final of the prestigious competition in 1900, 1902 and 2003. Southampton outplayed Manchester United in the 1976 FA Cup final and that is probably the club’s greatest victory ever.
The club are well known for their football academy and Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale is one of the players who began their football carrier at the St. Mary’s Stadium outfit. Southampton’s fiercest rivals are Portsmouth and the two teams square off against each other in the South Coast Derby.
