Our football match prediction:
Southampton produced a fine display against Manchester United in the League Cup final, but Zlatan Ibrahimovic eventually helped the Red Devils lift the trophy. The Saints missed a number of clear-cut chances to score the winner in the Wembley Stadium showdown, but they should now focus on upcoming league fixtures. Claude Puel’s troops rolled over Sunderland at Stadium of Light in their last league match and they will be looking to build on the performance when they face Watford on Matchday 27. The Hornets played out a 1-1 draw with West Ham United in Saturday's football match and seeing that they are only one point clear of Southampton in the Premier League standings, we predict that fans will see a closer encounter at Vicarage Road Stadium. The two teams seem to be evenly matched at the moment and, taking everything into account, share of spoils appears on the horizon.

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.

Southampton’s fiercest rivals are Portsmouth and the two teams square off against each other in the South Coast Derby.
