In their next fixture, Watford will face Southampton in the Vicarage Road Stadium, England. Both these teams are alike if we go by their recent performances. 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.

Watford has lost seven of their last eight league matches but are still 10th in the table. However, they are only five points off the bottom three.
Southampton is winless in nine matches and only a superior goal difference over Stoke separates them from the drop zone.
The Hornets have scored in each of their last six home matches, which should be enough to overcome a Southampton side lacking goals. This may not be a classic.
