Our football match prediction:
Sunday’s football match at KCOM Stadium pits together Hull City and Southampton, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the 2016/2017 Premier League campaign. The Tigers are desperate to secure the top flight survival, while the Saints aim to book their place in European competitions. However, as things stand now, Hull City are on a very difficult quest in the national championship as they are sitting in the relegation zone ahead of the visit of Claude Puel’s troops. The Tigers have are on a six-game losing run in the Premier League, with the team recording their last win back on 20 August against Swansea City. The Saints, on the other hand, aim to build on the Europa League win over Inter and they are regarded as favourites to win Saturday’s football match. Southampton suffered a 2-0 loss to Chelsea in their last league game and we predict that Claude Puel’s charges will give 100% to start a new winning run in the English top flight.

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.
