Bournemouth vs Burnley Prediction & Betting tips
AFC Bournemouth is not relegated, but can use the points very well. And then Burnley is not a fine opponent, because Burnley keeps on winning. Especially on foreign soil.
AFC Bournemouth is in thirteenth place in the Premier League and has only four points more than number eighteen West Ham United. That is still a great achievement, because not long ago, Bournemouth was still under the line. The Cherries have their back dish and have achieved a number of good performances, so it has played football from the relegation zone. However, things can go fast, because if things are not going well Bournemouth will have too few points after the weekend to stay outside the relegation places.
Last weekend, Bournemouth could have done a very good job if it managed to win at Swansea City. The game between the two relegation candidates ended, however, in the same way as it had started: 0-0. Bournemouth had the better of football on the basis of self-confidence and Swansea had to thank goalkeeper Fabianski for not falling behind at rest. The remainder of the match had little to do with the body and eventually the 0-0 was rightly called.
Thus, Bournemouth is now unbeaten three games in a row of which it won two. In fact, Bournemouth lost only one of his last five matches in the Premier League and won no less than three of those five games. Bournemouth has also managed to keep the three in a row for three games in a row, which in view of Bournemouth’s relationship with the defensive aspect of the game is impressive. The performances are also good at home with only one loss (0-1 against Chelsea) in four games.
Burnley is one of the better performing teams in the Premier League. Especially in view of Burnley’s status that is an impressive achievement, because Burnley is one of the less well-off teams in the highest English division. Nevertheless, Burnley is in a neat seventh place with 22 points from thirteen matches. The deficit at number six Liverpool is only one point, while the lead at number nine Brighton is six points. So it’s nice times for the fans at Turf Moor.
Last weekend Burnley lost in his own home with 0-1 from Arsenal. That was a very sour defeat, as Burnley managed to keep Arsenal from scoring up to 92 minutes. In that minute Alexis Sanchez struck and he made sure that Burnley was left empty-handed. Burnley played a very strong game and especially James Tarkowski made a big impression. The defensive aspect has therefore been mastered by Burnley, but that was also the case last year. Precisely this defensive stability ensures that Burnley can also compete against Arsenal.
Although the result was very disappointing, it does show that Burnley does not have to be afraid of any opponent. The results confirm that; Burnley won three of his last four games and managed to keep the zero in all three games. If Sanchez had not scored in the 92nd minute, then Burnley would have been able to keep the zero in three games in a row. In addition, Burnley lost only one of his six away games this season, and that was the game at Manchester City (3-0).
