Match Preview & Team News
Southampton have managed to beat table leaders Liverpool FC last weekend at this venue. Full-time result was 1-0, with the only goal being scored in very early stage of the match by Danny Ings. Shockingly, Southampton are only four points away from being EPL leaders. Can they continue with good performances against League One side? Read on our FA Cup betting tips and predictions below.
Current Form And Home & Away Performances
Southampton definitely deserve to be called the most pleasant surprise of the Premier League campaign so far. They were defeated only four times in 17 games, only once on the road. Head manager Ralph Hasenhuttl was very emotional after beating the reigning champions last weekend. He can surely be satisfied with this achieved so far. Even a place in Europa League would be a huge success. Danny Ings is having the best season of his career, scoring seven goals in 13 appearances. Theo Walcott has also contributed a lot for the Saints. The main question is if they are going to be in the roster against Shrewsbury on Saturday though.
Visitors are massive underdogs going into this clash even though their most recent form is looking stunning. The Lions were victorious in four out of the last five fixtures in League One, making a huge jump from the bottom to 17th place on the table.
Goals Markets Betting Preview
Visitors are most likely going to park the bus and hope for the best. Combining that with a possibility that Saints might rest key players for EPL battles, we see good value in backing Under 2.5 bet.
Shrewsbury have struggled to score in the FA Cup even against much weaker opponents, so we believe that home win to nil’ at 7/10 is the best call.
