Bournemouth vs Chelsea Prediction & Betting tips
After the painful 0-3 defeat in the Champions League against Bayern Munich, Chelsea has to put things right this weekend when they have to visit AFC Bournemouth. The home team lost 3-0 to Burnley last week and therefore has a lot to do with the supporters.
At AFC Bournemouth, they have to gradually believe it: The Cherries are getting closer to the relegation zone. Bournemouth is only two points ahead of the line and if Eddie Howe’s team takes no points in the next two duels (Chelsea-home and Liverpool-out), it is not inconceivable that Bournemouth will end up under the relegation line in the short term. In any case, it will be three more important months of the season for Bournemouth.
Howe saw that his team lost 3-0 last weekend without a chance to visit Burnley. Bournemouth has now lost the last five away games it played in the Premier League and The Cherries took only three points in their last nine duels. Fortunately for Howe and his men, they are playing a home game this weekend, but it is also very difficult for Bournemouth to book a result when Chelsea is a guest at the Vitality Stadium.
For Chelsea only the Premier League and the FA Cup remain in the coming months. The Blues qualified for the knockout phase of the Champions League, but already know after the first eighth final that they will not reach the quarterfinals. On Tuesday-evening, the team of Frank Lampard on Stamford Bridge lost 0-3 against Bayern Munich and Chelsea will of course never get over it again if it travels to Germany in a few weeks. The Champions League adventure is therefore almost over for the Lampard formation.
In the Premier League, The Blues are still competing for a ticket for next year’s Champions League. Chelsea is still neatly in fourth place at the moment and that would mean Champions League qualification. The lead over Manchester United, on the other hand, is only three points, so The Blues still has to work hard in the coming months. Last weekend Chelsea managed to win 2-1 against Tottenham Hotspur, which now has four points less than the Lampard team.
