EFL League Two Newport County welcome Premier League Southampton to Rodney Parade this Wednesday in EFL Cup action. Under Mike Flynn in recent years, the Exiles have pulled off several giant-killings in the cup – can the Welsh club add the Saints to that impressive list in midweek? Southampton are the clear favourites with the bookies, but Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men could be in for a tough evening in South Wales. Check out the best odds and tips.

Newport County Preview – Can the Welsh side cause another upset on home turf?

Mike Flynn’s Newport County have been knocking on the EFL League One door for years, but promotion has evaded the Welsh club in recent times. Last season, the Exiles were beaten in the League Two play-off final at Wembley Stadium.

Newport have kicked off this season with two wins from their opening three League Two games. On the opening weekend, they won 1-0 at Oldham Athletic before losing at Mansfield Town. Last time out, an Alex Fisher goal gave County a 1-0 victory at Tranmere Rovers.

Our betting prediction:
Southampton to be winning at half time & full time

Newport stunned EFL League One side Ipswich Town in the first round of the EFL Cup earlier in the month. Timmy Abraham scored the only goal of the game at Portman Road. Can Flynn’s boys cause another upset on Wednesday?

Southampton Preview – Will the Saints’ Premier League quality see them through?

Southampton started their season with a 3-1 loss to Everton. Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men were ahead at half time at Goodison Park thanks to Adam Armstrong’s goal, but second-half strikes from Richarlison, Abdoulaye Doucoure and Dominic Calvert-Lewin gave Rafa Benitez’s men the points.

On matchday two last Sunday, Southampton went into their home fixture with Manchester United as the big underdogs. However, they frustrated Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men, and Fred’s own goal gave the home team a 30th-minute lead. Mason Greenwood levelled for United, but the 1-1 draw was a good result for the Saints.

Newport County vs Southampton Betting Advice

Incredibly, this will be the first ever meeting between Newport and Southampton. The Exiles have beaten Leeds United and Leicester City, and drawn with Tottenham Hotspur in the cup at Rodney Parade in recent times, but Southampton should get the win and progress through to round three.


Key Facts – Newport County vs Southampton Betting Tip

  • Wednesday’s cup tie will be the first ever meeting between the clubs
  • Newport have won three of their opening four league and cup matches
  • Southampton held Man United to a draw in the Premier League last weekend


Last weekend’s draw with Man United was a real step in the right direction for Hasenhuttl and his boys. We fancy them to follow that up with a comfortable win in the cup on Wednesday. Back the away team to win -1 at 6/4.

Adam Armstrong was prolific in the EFL Championship for Blackburn Rovers during his time at Ewood Park, earning him a big-money move to St Mary’s in August. The 24-year-old netted on his Saints debut at Goodison Park. Take a punt on Armstrong to score first in this one at 9/2.
