Our prediction for this Championship match:
Southampton will be aiming to extend their winning run to four games when they take on Plymouth in the Championship round 25. The Saints have been scoring goals for fun of late and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against Plymouth. Ryan Fraser should be recalled to the starting XI after scoring a brace in the last league match, while fellow midfielder Shea Charles is back from suspension.
The Pilgrims, on the other hand, continue with their habit of producing fine displays at home, while struggling on the travels. As Plymouth have yet to record a win on the road this season, we predict that the hosts are going to pick up all three points from the match. As for the visiting side, Dan Scarr returns from suspension, while all Bundu, Cooper, Earley, and Hardie 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.
