Soccer Prediction for 22 September 2018 – Liverpool vs Southampton

Liverpool managed to make a perfect start at the opening of the English Premier League this season, through five consecutive wins in five inaugural matches. But, the ‘real tough test’ will await Jurgen Klopp’s team in the following weeks. At 6th matchday this weekend, Marseyside will face Southampton. The match itself will take place on Saturday night, 22 September 2018 at Anfield Stadium, Liverpool.

The host, Liverpool have just managed to score a crucial victory over Paris Saint-Germain in the first match of the European Champion League group stage this season. The victory was the 6th successive victory achieved by Jurgen Klopp’s squad in all competitions this season. They won five Premier League inaugural matches, and the positive record continues in the European Champions League. On paper, Marseyside’s team is superior to Southampton.

Moreover, they will play at home and watch the Saints’ performance at the start of the season, it is quite doubtful to predict that the visitors will be able to pick up full points in the match. Southampton is in fact only packing two wins in its last five matches in all competitions.
