Southampton v Brentford: Betting tips, predictions, odds & match preview
Premier League basement boys Southampton welcome Brentford to the St. Mary’s on Wednesday night, with the need for results increasingly becoming a necessity in their fight for survival (7.30pm kick-off, UK time).
The games are coming thick and fast in the Premier League as we approach the business end of the campaign, and Southampton still find themselves propping up the table, placing a huge emphasis on this midweek encounter with European-chasers Brentford.
Already onto their third manager of the campaign after Ruben Selles succeeded Nathan Jones last month, the Saints have produced some encouraging displays under the Spanish coach, notably wins over Chelsea and Leicester City, as well as a recent 0-0 draw at Old Trafford against Manchester United.
Brentford meanwhile recently saw their 12-game unbeaten run end with a whimper over the weekend as relegation candidates Everton secured a 1-0 win over them at Goodison Park. That was Thomas Frank’s first league defeat of 2023, denting the Bees’ hopes of achieving a European place in the process. But, the Londoners will be determined to shake off the complacency and get back on track when they travel south later today.

Southampton v Brentford match stats
Brentford and Southampton met only last month, with the west Londoners securing a comprehensive 3-0 triumph. Bryan Mbeumo both scored and assisted in that game and he has been following a similar trajectory in recent fixtures. In fact, the French winger has been directly involved in three goals in his three Premier League games against Southampton (one goal, two assists).
Ivan Toney will also be looking to inflict further misery on the Saints. The centre-forward is third only to Erling Haaland (28) and Harry Kane (20) for most goals this season (15), though that tally could have been a lot higher were it not for his propensity to stray offside. In fact, only Kai Havertz (25) has been offside more times than Toney (20) in the Premier League this season.

Goals from Jan Bednarek, Armando Broja, Che Adams and an Alvaro Fernandez own goal got the job done for the Saints.
