Match Predictions and Betting Odds
Southampton’s Last Premier League Game
Southampton lost 1-2 to Brighton on 14 March. Leandro Trossard and Lewis Dunk were on target as the Seagulls stuttered to a 2-1 win away at St Mary’s, a result that helped the visitors to edge clear of the relegation zone. Lewis Dunk headed Brighton in front after being fed by a fine delivery from Pascal Gross. But Southampton were back level soon after. They got the equaliser when Adams smashed the ball home from the back post after he was picked out by a delicate ball. But Trossard latched on to a deft flick by Danny Welbeck to smash in a second goal for Brighton.
Burnley’s Last Premier League Game
A mess at the back for the Foxes helped Matej Vydra slot home his first goal in 13 months to put Burnley in front. But an exquisite volley from Kelechi Iheanacho cancelled out the strike to deny Burnley full points from their home game on 3 March.
The Last Premier League game between Burnley and Southampton
Burnley went down 0-1 to Southampton on 26 September 2020. On five minutes, a simple finish by Danny Ings put the Saints in front. In a game that was largely devoid of clear chances, Southampton just about managed to edge it, to take away full points. A Che Adams cut back allowed Ings to find space into the penalty area. Burnley keeper Nick Pope found himself stranded leaving Ings the simple task of finishing into an empty net. Ings used his shin to execute a well-timed strike, helping Saints to their first points of the season. Burnley had reason to considered themselves unlucky when, in a marginal decision, referee Andre Marriner whistled Chris Wood offside to deny him a goal after he had put the ball in the net.
