In my opinion, the home team will give their best in this fight. They need to rise from the bottom of the standings and create a reserve for competitors, and it’s time to correct the statistics of face-to-face confrontations. Most likely, you will be able to score points.
“Saints” in such a dense standings can claim high positions, since they are now in eighth place. The club has produced a fantastic streak of victories this season, although then it began to slow down. First, he drew with Wolverhampton (1:1), and then lost to Manchester United (2:3).
