Southampton v Cardiff City: Both teams walking a tight rope

09.02.2019, Finished at St. Mary's Stadium

11:33, 07 Feb 2019

This is one of the handful relegation scraps taking place in the 26th round of Premier League.

Southampton is the more comfortable of the two but The Saints can't let their guard down against a taciturn Cardiff City. The Welsh team had their plans to strengthen their misfiring squad in the January transfer window thrown off the rails when the club's most expensive signing, Emiliano Sala, tragically disappeared while on a flight to ink a new deal from Nantes. 

While Southampton will be the slight bookie favorites to win this fixture, they have been awful at home - winning only 2 of their 14 fixtures at St. Mary's Stadium since the start of the current season. On the other hand though, Cardiff City have only won once on the road in the Premier League this season. Incredibly, the two teams last met in 2014 when Cardiff won the Premier League fixture at St Mary's Stadium 1-0.
