A disappointing campaign for Southampton comes to a close this weekend, as the Saints play their final Premier League match before their relegation. Liverpool’s season has also ended in disappointment, as they have missed out on a Champions League spot.
Before Betting On Southampton vs Liverpool
Both Southampton and Liverpool will be disappointed with the way that their Premier League campaigns have played out this term, as both have fallen below the targets that they were hoping to achieve. Liverpool come into this final day assignment knowing that they can no longer finish in a Champions League spot, meaning Europa League evenings will return to Anfield next season.
However, they come into this final fixture in solid form, as they have won four of their previous five. Their only recent dropped points came at Anfield last weekend, as they fought back to claim a 1-1 draw against Aston Villa. The Reds boast an incredibly strong record in this fixture, as the have won ten of their previous eleven against the Saints.
Meanwhile, Liverpool haven’t conceded more than once on their previous 13 clashes with Southampton. The last time that they conceded more than once came back in March 2016, as the Reds were beaten 3-2 at St Mary’s. Southampton has a poor record on the final day of the season, as they have lost each of their previous two by a three-goal margin. However, they haven’t lost on the final game of the season in three straight campaigns since 1939.
Another worrying trend from a Southampton perspective this weekend is the fact that the team sitting bottom of the standings has won their final match of the season on just one occasion in the previous 20 seasons.

The pressure will be off both of these sides this weekend, as neither has anything to play for. That firmly plays into the hands of Liverpool on Sunday, and we would be stunned if they aren’t able to claim victory by a commanding margin at St Mary’s.
