Wolves were booed off on Wednesday evening following a goalless draw at a Bournemouth side who had lost 9-0 at the weekend. Bruno Lage is under pressure after poor end to last season and a slow start to this campaign that has seen them take just three points from their opening five.
At Molineux, Wanderers have drawn both league games in 2022/23 and if you go back into last season it is now five without success at their own place. The last three at this ground have seen a total of just four.
Southampton continued their impressive start to the campaign as they defeated Chelsea 2-1 in midweek thanks to a goal each from Romeo Lavia and Adam Armstrong. It is seven points from the opening five for the Saints who now have four winnable games upcoming.
Away from St Mary’s, the South Coast outfit picked up a 2-1 road success at Leicester last time on their travels. It ended a run of eight without a victory on the road and it is now 16 without a clen sheet for the Saints in away games.
Wolves vs Southampton Match Stats
It has been honours even going into the break in four of the five games Woles have played this season. This has also been the same in the last four Premier League matches for Southampton. The value lies then in backing these sides to be all-square at the end of the campaign.
Matheus Nunez has impressed since signing for Wolves and he has shown an encouraging ability to get in to goalscoring positions. He is averaging 2.3 shots per game since his move to Wolves. Sky Bet have him at 6/4 to have two shots (not necessarily on target) in this fixture and in a game Wolves really must be looking to win this looks good value.
