our main tip:
DC X2 & Ov. 2.5 goals

Southampton FC vs Leeds United 18.05.2021

Southampton have come alive to finish the season picking up back-to-back wins over London teams Crystal Palace and Fulham while scoring 3 goals in the process.  This was their first consecutive wins since December last year as they look to set the stage for a better showing next year. They did look good for long stretches earlier this season, but they ran out of gas in mid-season and now look set to finish in mid-table when all is said and done.

Leeds meantime are having a terrific season on their return to the top flight. They are 10th of the table but actually have an outside chance of finishing in the top 7 should they win their two remaining games and other results go their way. That’s a long shot though but you can trust Bielsa to push it all the way. Another win for them would see them record three consecutive PL successes for just the second time this season, and also put them just one win away from securing the second-best ever PL return for a promoted team behind only Newcastle (1993/94).

We feel this will be a competitive game with both teams having a go at it. Southampton are assured of Based on current form though, we fancy Leeds to come out on top of a game that is likely to have a bucketload of goals and we are therefore backing a combo of Leeds on the double chance and Over 2.5 goals.
