Ipswich visit St. Mary's Stadium this coming Tuesday for a Championship fixture with home side Southampton.

Two places behind the league-leaders, Ipswich claimed 15 points from six rounds, while Southampton amassed ten points. They now rank as number 9 in the Championship standings.

Following some poor performances in this Championship campaign recently, Southampton desperately need points from the match against Ipswich to get back on track.

Southampton scored an average of two goals in ten matches or a total of 20 while allowing 22 goals against. This is an average of 2.2 goals against per match with one clean sheets along the way.

Ipswich are currently decent goalscorers, as they managed a bearable 15 goals in the past ten outings for an average of 1.5 goals a game. Their opponents scored a total of 16 goals, and while Ipswich claimed three clean sheets, they conceded an average of 1.6 goals per match.

It finished all square on when Southampton last faced Ipswich. With both denying to back down, the scoreboard said 1-1 in the end. The best betting odds on a draw at full-time with the bookies are at 12/5.

Southampton vs Ipswich Prediction

Southampton Form

Southampton managed one win in the last three matches, which was a 2-1 victory against Queens P.R.. They went on to lose 5-0 against Sunderland, before getting dumped in a 1-4 defeat against Leicester. Southampton claimed a modest two wins in their past six home matches in the Championship. They also drew two and lost two, scored 14 goals and conceded 14.

A top half finish is the bare minimum Ipswich will expect from this season. The visitors are targeting a spot in an international tournament and know a good start will leave them in a good stead.

Ipswich Form

Ipswich went unbeaten through their last three matches, which began with a 2-2 draw against Reading. A 3-2 win against Cardiff followed, before they beat Sheffield Wednesday by 0-1. Ipswich managed a decent return of three wins in their last six Championship away matches, in which they scored four while also conceding nine times. They also experienced zero draws and three defeats.

Southampton have one eye on the big prize, although a spot in the top two looks the safer bet as the Championship gets rolling.

Southampton go into their match at St. Mary's Stadium as favourites with the bookies, but form has been too shabby for us to back that claim. We prefer a bet on Ipswich, while the more cautious punter might prefer the double-chance.

Southampton have taken one points from their last three games against teams from the top half of the Championship table. They won zero of these matches with a scoreline of five goals to 13. Southampton only drew once so far this season after six games played, in stead recording three wins and two defeats in the Championship. Ipswich are looking at five wins, zero draws and one defeat in the Championship.
