Our football match prediction:
West Bromwich Albion were on the verge of sharing the spoils with Arsenal on Boxing Day, but Olivier Giroud eventually scored a late winner for the Gunners. The Baggies obviously struggle against top-table sides, but they sit in the top half of the standings ahead of the trip to Southampton. WBA failed to score in previous two league fixtures and we predict that the Saints are going to keep a clean sheet in Saturday’s football match. Claude Puel’s men have been having their ups and downs this season, but seeing that they defeated the likes of Everton and Middlesbrough in previous two home games in the league, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts. Southampton are eyeing a place in European competitions and they are definitely capable of beating WBA at their St. Mary’s Stadium. Jay Rodriguez has found his goal-scoring touch of late, meaning that the opposition back-line should have him at bay.
Highlighted Player (Steven Davis):
Born in Ballymena on 1 January 1985, Steven Davis is probably the most famous Northern Irish footballer of the 21st century, and he was one of team’s youngest ever captains, having been awarded the armband just over a year after making his debut for the national team. The combative midfielder has spent his entire career up to date in the UK, enjoying successful spells with Aston Villa, Fulham, Rangers and Southampton, while representing the country of his birth at various youth levels before getting a chance to shine at the biggest stage. Davis soon established himself as a leader of the Northern Ireland football team, missing just a handful of competitive fixtures since making his debut in 2005. The central midfielder scored 2 goals to help the national team finally secure their place at a major tournament, with an impressive Euro 2016 qualifying campaign likely to remain fresh in the minds of both the players and fans alike in years to come.
