Southampton travel to Newcastle United with the aim of overturning a first-leg deficit in the EFL Cup semi-final. However, it will not be an easy task for the visitors since the second leg contest at St James’ Park will be heavily in favour of the home side due to understandable reasons. Newcastle United’s position in the Premier League table and their impeccable defensive record makes it difficult for any side to beat them.

Add to it Southampton’s struggles in the Premier League this campaign, it will be unlikely to see them cause an upset win at St James’ Park. In the first leg, Newcastle United edged Southampton, thanks to a Joelinton strike. That narrow 1-0 win puts them in the driver’s seat ahead of the second leg. The winner from this contest will take on Manchester United or Nottingham Forest in the final. United had won the first leg 3-0 and seem favourite to reach the final in the other tie.
