Non-Tournament Matches English Premier League
  • Key Stat

    Key Stat: Aston Villa have won just one of their last six matches in all competitions, losing four of the last five.

  • Expert Verdict

    Expert Verdict: These two teams played out a thriller last time they met, when Southampton raced into a 4-0 lead at Villa Park only for Villa to pull it back to 4-3 late on. Both teams have dropped to mid-table now, but Southampton look in the better form overall and can beat Villa again.

Our prediction

Southampton

Out-of-form Aston Villa will look to get back on track when they travel to face a Southampton side who themselves have been unable to keep pace with the top four after a flying start. The two teams now meet in mid-table, and the match at St Mary’s Stadium on January 30 kicks off at 20:00 local time.

Southampton vs Aston Villa Head-to-Head Stats

Southampton have won all three matches against Villa since the latter’s Premier League return in 2019. Going further back, to Southampton’s top-flight return in 2012, Villa have only won one of their last 12 meetings in all competitions. This season, the Saints raced into a 4-0 lead at Villa Park – James Ward-Prowse scoring two free-kicks between Jannik Vestergaard and Danny Ings finding the net. Tryone Mings pulled one back, however, and stoppage-time goals from Jack Grealish and Ollie Watkins in a frantic finale made for a much closer final scoreline.

Southampton vs Aston Villa Recommended bets with odds

Southampton have home advantage and better overall form and yet are outsiders with the bookmakers. It means they can be backed for a tasty price of 17/10 with Betway, 888sport and 10Bet to win.

Having shared seven goals last time out, however, both teams to score is worth backing at 4/7 with Bet365.

Danny Ings is 11/10 with 888sport to score at any time for Southampton, while Ollie Watkins is 15/8 with Betway.

Southampton vs Aston Villa Prediction

Southampton have an excellent record against Aston Villa in recent seasons and can complete the league double against them this year by winning this match.
