  • Competition: England - EFL Cup

  • Kickoff: 20:00 UK / 21.00 CET
  • Venue: St. Mary's Stadium (Southampton)

Southampton's place of residence in recent years was the lower part of the table, but now the club from Hampshire is in a very awkward situation, and if they continue with such pale editions, they could easily leave the company of the best after 11 seasons. The Saints are currently "cemented" at the bottom of the Premier League table, with a miserable 12 points to their name, but they still don't need the alert alarm, as they are behind Wolves, who are the first team over the line, by just two points.

Upon their return to the Premier League (2017/18), mid-table was Newcastle's ultimate reach. Sometimes that position is above and sometimes below, but mostly they spin around the middle. However, The Magpies flew high after the arrival of the Arab owners, which is confirmed by the results in the current campaign. The club from the north of England is currently in the desired fourth position in the Premier League with 39 points won, so fans are already hoping to see their club in the UEFA Champions League next season, as they have six points more than fifth-placed Tottenham.

Southampton vs Tottenham Betting Tips: Team2 to Win

Recent tradition is absolutely on the side of Newcastle who managed to triumph three times in the previous four meetings, with one draw. The first duel of the season, played at St. Mary's Stadium (15th round), The Magpies also decided in their favor, as they demolished The Saints with a convincing 4-1.

In mid-November, the club from Hampshire left the long-term coach Ralph Hasenhuttl, who was replaced by Nathan Jones. However, even the appointment of the Welshman did not bring progress, as Southampton suffered five defeats from six games under his leadership, and they achieved the only triumph against the disappointing Everton (2-1).

However, the success worth mentioning is the placement of Southampton in the semi-finals of the EFL Cup of England, which surprisingly celebrated against Manchester City, with a result of 2-0. But the question is with what ambitions did "The Citizens" enter this competition, since they are currently active on three fronts that are very important to them.

Before the start of the season, few could have predicted that a club with a very modest budget would play this badly. They have big problems at both ends of the field. Their attacking zone is extremely ineffective, as they managed to shake the net 17 times. They are also struggling in the back line, and undoubtedly their defense would be the worst at the moment if Bournemouth had not suffered a debacle from Liverpool (0-9).

Meanwhile, Newcastle quite easily secured a place among the "best" four in the EFL Cup, as they defeated Leicester (2-0) in front of their home fans. The Magpies last lifted the trophy from this competition 68 years ago, and they had the last chance to win the same in 1999 when they lost in the final to Manchester United, with whom they could meet again this season, because "The Red Devils" are also fighting for the final.

The trademark of The Magpies is definitely a granite defense which, after a goalless 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace at the weekend, tied the sixth game in a row without conceding a goal. In total, this season, the undisputed goalkeeper Nick Pope took the ball out of his net only 11 times, which is a truly impressive performance.

If Newcastle wants to gain a good and significant advantage before the second leg, then they will have to sharpen the attacking line, which was not at an enviable level lately. However, The Magpies won't have a better opportunity to regain their goal-scoring form than this against Southampton who, believe it or not, have managed to register a "clean sheet" only once in 20 rounds this season.
