Our prediction for this EFL Cup match:
All eyes will be on St. Mary’s Stadium when Southampton and Brentford face each other in the EFL Cup round 3. The Saints failed to impress in their Premier League opener, with the team losing 1-0 at Crystal Palace. Southampton aim to give fans something to cheer about, and we are positive that the hosts will take Wednesday’s Carabao Cup clash very seriously. The likes of Stuart Armstrong and Mohammed Salisu are the only absentees in the home team.
The Bees, on the other hand, continue life without key attacker Olie Watkins, who joined Aston Villa in the summer transfer window. Since Mohamed Benrahma is on the verge of leaving the squad as well, it is no wonder Brentford kicked off the new Championship campaign with a loss at Birmingham City. Anyhow, the Saints should take advantage of the current atmosphere in the away team’s dressing room.
