Our football match prediction:
Saturday’s football match at Selhurst Park sees out-of-sorts Crystal Palace face Southampton on day 14 of the new Premier League campaign. Despite producing a fine display against Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium at the weekend, the Eagles eventually suffered a 5-4 loss to the Welsh outfit, with the team extending their losing run in the league to six games. Situation is alarming at Selhurst Park ahead of the visit of Southampton and, no doubt, the hosts should be happy with one point from the clash against Claude Puel’s troops. The Saints did well to beat Everton in front of home fans at the weekend and seeing that a win over Crystal Palace would see the visitors regain their spot in top ten, we predict that Dusan Tadic and Co. are going to pick up all three points from the match. In their last meeting in the Premier League Southampton recorded a 4-1 win over Crystal Palace.
