Our football match prediction:
Following back-to-back triumphs over Crystal Palace and West Bromwich Southampton suffered a 3-0 loss to Man City in their last league fixture. The Saints remained in the top half of the table, but they have little to play for in the season finale. Claude Puel’s troops are 23 points behind the Europa League berth and, on the other hand, they are nine points clear of the relegation zone with four matches to go. Hull City desperately needed a win against Watford at the weekend and they managed to get one. The Tigers are two points clear of the relegation zone ahead of the trip to Southampton and seeing that the Saints are a real force to be reckoned with at home, the visitors would be happy with one point from Saturday’s football match. Taking everything into account, we predict that the two teams will share the spoils at St. Mary’s Stadium.
Highlighted Player (Martin Caceres):
Martin Caceres is a widely travelled and well known Uruguayan professional footballer who plays for Juventus. Primarily a central defender, Caceres is known for his tenacity, pace, strength, tackling and aerial ability. He is versatile and can operate as full-back on either sides too. Caceres started his career at Defensor Sporting and became a regular at a very young age. In 2007, he went to Spanish side Villarreal but never officially appeared for them. He then was snapped up by Barcelona in 2008 for a reported transfer fee of € 16.5 million. But his only season at the Camp Nou was marred with injuries and moved to Juventus in 2012 via a short stop at Sevilla. Caceres made his full senior team debut in 2007 and was a successful member of the team that won the 2011 Copa America. He also played at the 2014 World Cup and has 68 national caps to his credit.
Highlighted Team (Hull City):
Hull City are a professional football club that was founded back in 1904. The Tigers used to play their home games at Boothferry Park, but they moved to the KC Stadium in 2002. The stadium capacity is 24,450. Hull impressed in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign and, as a result, they returned to the English Premier League. Hull City fans consider Leeds United their main rivals, but Sheffield United are regarded as Hull’s fierce rivals as well. Steve Bruce took over the reins at the club in 2012 and the experienced tactician helped the team book a place in the 2013/2014 FA Cup final, but Arsenal proved to be a big catch for the Tigers in the title decider. Hull City finished the 2013/2014 Premier League campaign in 16th place in the standings to achieve their highest ever top flight finish. It has to be noted that Curtis Davies was named the team’s player of the year in the 2013/2014 season.
