In the last match of the 23rd round of Premier League in England, fans will be able to enjoy very curious duel between two of the best performing teams during the season. The odds for the game offered by the leading bookmaker bet365 are as follows: 1.65 for a home win, with a draw at 4.00 and 6.00 for the victory of the guests. Teams of Southampton and Swansea already met this season at the "Liberty Stadium", where Victor Wanyama`s goal gave the victory for Saints with 1:0.
Saints were defeated last weekend from Crystal Palace at home with 2:3 and finished with their participation in the FA Cup. However, this is incredible season in the Premier League for Southampton and the team is one point behind the third place. All fans of the team hope for a place in the Top 4 and participate in the Champions League next year. The upcoming match with Swansea is crucial. Ronald Koeman will seek mandatory victory without a lot of his major players. With injuries are Toby Alderweireld, Victor Wanyama, Morgan Schneiderlin, Emmanuel Mayuka and Shane Long. Sadio Mane returns after injury, but hardly will have strength for 90 minutes. The new addition Eljero Elia impress against Newcastle with 2 goals and again will get a starting place on the left flank of the attack of the saints.
Swans also dropped out of the FA Cup after losing to Blackburn Rovers with 3:1. Troubles of this match are associated with the two red cards that they received. Kyle Bartley and Gylfi Sigur?sson were expelled and punished for the upcoming meeting. Swans are one of the pleasant surprises of the season, but now all the experts foresee a decline in their form. In the last round of Premier League, Swansea received a sonorous slap of Chelsea with 5:0 at "Liberty". Garry Monk can`t use his best player and top scorer of the team - Wilfried Bony, who was sold to Manchester City. Ki Sung-Yueng participates in the race of Asia and is not available to his coach. Wayne Routledge is injured and captain Ashley Williams also has problems, but is likely to recover for the visit.
Both teams have problems ahead, but Ronald Koeman has a greater width in his composition. Saints are almost faultless before his audience and are highly motivating to take all three points in the upcoming match.
Prediction Southampton - Swansea: 1
Odds: 1.57 at bet365
