[Premier League Prediction] Southampton vs Nottingham Prediction: The next round of Premier League action will feature a matchup between Southampton and Nottingham on Tuesday, January 3. In light of this, we have created a thorough game preview and some free betting advice for you.

Southampton vs Nottingham Prediction: The Saints' Struggling Beginnings

At St Mary's Stadium on Wednesday night, Southampton welcomes Nottingham Forest to the South Coast in a crucial Premier League bottom matchup. In their most recent match, Steve Cooper's team clung on for a 1-1 tie against Chelsea while the Saints suffered an excruciating 2-1 loss to Fulham.

Southampton form

A trademark On New Year's Eve, Southampton lost late against Fulham because Southampton captain James Ward-Prowse lost the struggle for midfield supremacy to Cottagers star Joao Palhinha. As a result, the free kick that Ward-Prowse had taken earlier had no effect.

In the 56th minute, Ward-Prowse spun toward his own goal before unleashing a thunderous long-range free kick beyond Bernd Leno's helpless grasp. However, Southampton was denied a point only two minutes later when Palhinha headed in at the back post.

As Southampton prepares for their first game of the new year while lying at the bottom of the rankings, only two points separate them from the security of 17th place at the time of writing. The Saints board's decision to remove Ralph Hasenhuttl and employ Nathan Jones has yet to be validated.

With just six points from a possible 24 at St. Mary's and a league-high 15 goals allowed at home thus far, Southampton enters 2023 as the division's worst-performing home side. They are in danger of losing six games in a row in England's top division.

Nottingham form

Sparks flew during Nottingham Forest's match against Chelsea, which came after a string of New Year's Eve pyrotechnics, between two hot-tempered sides. The City Ground faithful exited the match the happiest of the two groups of supporters after seeing their club get a draw.

On the 16-minute mark, Raheem Sterling's lucky goal gave Chelsea a 1-0 lead. However, former Tottenham Hotspur player Serge Aurier showed that there was still love between the two teams in London when he made an outstanding job to chest the ball down and volleying home just after the hour mark.

Nottingham's form

While gladly taking a point against the Blues, Steve Cooper acknowledged that his team may have been entitled to all three. As a result, they are now in 18th position, only one point below West Ham United on goal differential.

Nottingham Forest's two losses in seven games are hardly a dismal record, especially considering that their most recent defeats came at the hands of Manchester United and Arsenal, but they still haven't picked up a Premier League road victory this season and have now embarrassingly failed to score in their last six top-flight games on opposing grounds.

Southampton vs Nottingham Betting Tips

Match Result – Draw

The Reds should be able to escape loss when they travel to a Southampton team that is out of sorts on Wednesday night because Nottingham Forest played admirably to get a draw at home against Chelsea last time out, despite the fact that their away record makes for depressing reading. The Saints have a new manager, but their performance hasn't improved, and their league loss against Fulham on New Year's Eve was their fifth straight setback. As Southampton's situation becomes direr and direr, we advise backing Forest in the market for second chances.

Under 2.5 Goals

We don't anticipate Nathan Jones' new Southampton team to fare much better against Nottingham Forest since they have yet to score more than once in a game and lack imagination in their offensive approach. The visitors, in contrast, have only managed one goal while traveling since being promoted, but they showed enough bravery in defense against Chelsea in their most recent test to imply that they can staunchly limit the opportunities of the struggling Saints. The situation calls for a low-scoring battle, therefore betting on under 2.5 goals would be the best course of action.

Southampton vs Nottingham Best Tips From Betimate

  • Both teams to Score - Yes

A resurrected Nottingham Forest can finally score against a porous Southampton defense, but Cooper's team must make the most of having one fewer day of rest before the long trip south.

We should expect a low-scoring draw at St Mary's as both clubs are scared of losing in this relegation six-pointer. Jones's men have not had any issue scoring throughout their own bad string of results.
