Bournemouth vs Liverpool Prediction & Betting tips
On the penultimate round of the Premier League first-round, the Reds have to head to Vitality Stadium in Bournemouth. Liverpool FC have only been drawn by one draw in the past two games and will do their utmost to regain their points on Sunday to remain in the Champions League starting grid. The opponent from the south of England has completely different concerns and tries to hold the class for the third time in a row. Only two points ahead of AFC Bournemouth on a relegation zone. In the smallest stadium of the Premier League – the Vitality Stadium offers only about 11,500 spectators – it starts at 16:30 clock. The referee of the match is Andre Marriner.
Contrary to many predictions, the AFC Bournemouth has established itself in the Premier League and now denies the third season in the major league. In the last season, the small club on the English Channel reached the notable ninth place. The recipe for success of the team of coach Eddie Howe was to play with the big guys uninhibited and not only to hide on the defensive. So ended the AFC Bournemouth with 55 goals as the seventh best offensive team, among others, even before the big Manchester United. The downside of the medal was a vulnerable defense. So the Cherries were with 67 goals the fifth most prone team for goals.
With nearly the entire team held last summer and two well-known reinforcements for the money raised with Chelsea duo Nathan Ake and Asmir Begovic, Bournemouth expected another strong season. So far, however, it is not quite as desired. The South of England play far more defensive this season and can much less often surprise the opponents. Although Bournemouth only received 20 goals and improved the defensive compared to the previous year, but with only 15 goals scored by themselves, coach Eddie Howe’s team is on offense in the lower third of the league. The Cherries have been waiting for victory for five games. Bournemouth lost 1-0 to Manchester United at Old Trafford on 25 minutes thanks to Romelu Lukaku’s 25th-minute goal.
Liverpool are currently fifth with 31 points, only enough for the Europa League, but fourth place and thus the premier class is more than just within reach. Only the slightly better goal difference of Tottenham Hotspurs separates the two clubs. Recently, the Reds acted a bit hapless in the final and came in the last two games not a draw out. After a glorious 7-0 victory in the Champions League against Spartak Moscow followed the Merseyside Derby against Everton. In this the objective spectator could only wonder how Liverpool played despite numerous chances only 1: 1. A controversial penalty for the Toffees helped, of course, but the main reason for the lost two points was clearly the bad chance utilization.
They did not improve in their last game against West Bromwich Albion and Liverpool drew 0-0. In addition to some missed chances was also a disallowed goal of Dominic Solanke here, who probably steered the ball with his hand in goal. “The Normal One” Jürgen Klopp said after the game: “It was not a game for 20 chances, but we had seven or eight, and we all know that the boys usually meet in such moments.” As in the previous season The Reds under Jürgen Klopp are among the most offensive teams in the league. With 34 goals Liverpool scored an average of two goals per game, which is only behind the two clubs from Manchester. Especially in Torlaune showed Liverpool in the last three away games. Both West Ham United (4-1), Stoke City (3-0) and Brighton & Hove Albion (5-1) celebrated high victories.
