On Friday, April 20, at the stadium Emirates (London) will be a meeting in the 32nd round of the championship of England between Arsenal and Southampton.
This season, Arsenal are actively in contention for the 2022/23 Premier League title and the club is currently in 1st place in the table with 74 points.
Over the past two rounds, Mikel Arteta’s team has lost a big advantage from second place to Manchester City, and now it is 4 points, and the opponent still has a game in hand.
In the 31st round of the Premier League, Arsenal played away with Southampton with a score (2-2), before that the team had shown an equal result with Liverpool (2-2) at home.
Southampton, meanwhile, are having a disastrous league season with the English club currently sitting last in 20th place in the table.
The club has only 23 points in its assets, and in 31 played rounds they managed to win only 6 times. The team is currently on a six-game streak without a win.
In the last round of the Premier League, Southampton lost at home to Crystal Palace, and before that, they were weaker than Manchester City, having conceded four goals (1-4) in their field.

In this match, we do not expect sensations, since the opponent of the leader of the table is clearly weak, and, most likely, will be relegated to the second division of England at the end of the season.
Arsenal are in dire need of points as the lead from second place is getting narrower and we are looking forward to a confident home win with more than 2 goals.
Prediction for this match: Total over 2.5 goals.
