In a sentence: Just weeks after facing off in the Premier League, the two relegation-threatened sides come up against each other once again in the FA Cup.

Last Time: Southampton won 3-2 a few weeks ago at The Hawthorns to momentarily lift them away from the Premier League relegation zone.

This time: West Brom to win is 6/4, a draw is 11/5 and a Saints win is 8/5.

You might remember: Earlier in the season Southampton beat West Brom thanks to a super goal from Sofiane Boufal in front of their own fans and have the chance to make it a hat trick this weekend.

Betting Tips & Predictions

Southampton spent big on Guido Carrilo but he’s yet to bag his first goal

If you want a repeat of the last match between these two, a 3-2 win for the away side is at 40/1 whilst a 1-0 Southampton win – a repeat from earlier on in the campaign – is priced at just 7/1. West Brom, however, have been performing well in the FA Cup this season so a 2-0 win at 9/1 wouldn’t be too bad of a shout.

Jay Rodriguez had a good outing against Liverpool in the last round and is 5/1 to score first and 7/4 to score at any time, with Southampton’s new signing Guido Carrillo at 11/2 to score first and 19/10 to get his debut goal at any time over the 90 minutes.

However, if it’s a replay you’re wanting, a solid 1-1 with Shane Long to grab a goal first is at 35/1. A 0-0 wouldn’t be too out there in terms of a final score, and that is priced at 8/1 and a 1-1 with no specific scorer is 11/2.

Match Summary

1

Look out for:

Southampton have Pardew’s number this season, and a 3-0 win at 28/1 may be in order if the Baggies decide to focus primarily on the Premier League.

2

We fancy:

A 1-1 draw with Egyptian Ahmed Hegazi to score at any time is 100/1.

3

It’s a long shot, but:

A Baggies 3-0 win with Jay Rodriguez to score first is at 90/1.
