Portsmouth News and Form – Can Pompey pull off an upset?

There was a league defeat for Pompey on the weekend as they were beaten by Wycombe 1-0 in League One. It has been just one win in their seven league games for the season. They are currently sat just above the drop zone in the division. However, they aren’t in bad form at Fratton Park which will give them some hope for this one. They are on a four-match undefeated streak there for this season with a W2 D2 record from that. Portsmouth have scored at least two goals in those four games as well.

Portsmouth To Qualify


They collected a very good 3-0 win over Championship side Birmingham at home in the last round. If they could follow that up against a Premier League side then it would be a huge occasion for them. That would be a dreamland for Pompey. However, Portsmouth have suffered four defeats in their last six EFL Cup games with two of those defeats happening in extra time. Portsmouth have won three of their last five home League Cup games (L2).

Southampton News and Form – Will the Saints beat Portsmouth?

There has been some nice form from Southampton recently. They were on a four-match unbeaten streak of form in all competitions before a home loss against Bournemouth on the weekend in top-flight action. In the last round of the EFL Cup, the Saints paid a visit to Championship side Fulham and put on a solid showing to get the victory at Craven Cottage.

It is six wins in their last nine EFL Cup fixtures from Southampton. Their away record in the competition isn’t bad at all either. They have gone W6 L2 in their last eight League Cup road games, one of the losses there on penalties last season against Leicester. Southampton are currently on a three-match winning streak on the road in all competitions. Each of those wins were with a clean sheet as well.

Southampton to win: Southampton edged out Fulham away from home in the last round. We would look for no less from them on this trip to Fratton Park. The Saints have some decent away form behind them at the moment and are not likely to get tripped up. Away win.
