The upcoming fixture of Watford and Southampton in the Vicarage Road Stadium, England is going to be a nail-biting contest given the current performances of both the teams. Watford is believed to be the better team in this game because they are seven ranks above their opponents and have won 7 matches so far, salvaging 25 points whereas the visiting team has only managed to win 4 of their league games and have scored 20 points on the league table.
If the statistics are to be believed then 8 of the nine clashes of both these teams have seen an average of 2.5 goals per match. This contest will prove which one is the better team because the home team have failed to register more than one win in their last matches and for the visiting team they are having an even terrible luck with no wins in their last nine games so the battle is going to be hard and whoever wins today’s game would surely have a change of their current fate.

Even though the home team is ranked 10th on the points table they are just ahead by 5 points from the bottom three positions given their recent performances of seven losses out of their last eight appearances. However, on the other hand, the visiting team have also failed to register a single win in their last nine matches and just the goal difference of one goal keeps them in the bound from the relegation zone.
The Hornets, the home team have scored in each of their last six home games so they are expected to have the upper hand in today’s game over Southampton.
