SOU vs BRE Dream11 Prediction: Southampton managed to salvage a 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace over the midweek, and will now face a stern test in the form of Brentford on Saturday. The Saints have not won a single Premier League game in six outings, and are in a spot of bother, placed at 15th in the league table.

Brentford ‘s home game against Manchester United was cancelled owing to the covid outbreak in the Red Devils camp. Brentford salvaged a late victory against Watford last week, defeating Claudio Ranieri’s men, 2-1. The newly promoted team are placed 12th in the league, with 20 points to their name and a game in hand.

Date: 18 December, Wednesday

Expected Changes and Strategy:

  • B. Mbeumo and Y. Wissa will start up top for the visitors.

Captain Options

B. Mbeumo scored a late penalty against Watford last week, and already has three goals to his name this season. In the absence of Ivan Toney, he will be Brentford’s target man.

Armando Broja has four league goals to his name this season, and is expected to lead the attacking lines for Southampton once again. The visitors have been a bit shaky at the back, something which Broja could exploit.
