Bournemouth vs Tottenham Prediction & Betting tips
When Jose Mourinho was introduced as the new Tottenham coach in late November, this decision polarized the fan camp of the Lilywhites. Negative opinions should prevail at the latest six months later. The Londoners are in the Premier League as bad as they have been for a long time and there is a risk of missing the European Cup.
On Thursday evening, the blue-whites are therefore faced with a compulsory task as part of the 34th game day. Between Bournemouth and Tottenham, the odds of the best bookmakers clearly move in the direction of the guests, who, however, have not won in the top English division since February.
Nevertheless, there is much to suggest that the Spurs with better quality will be successful, especially since the Cherries have lost all matches since the restart and, as the penultimate of the classification, are four points behind the saving bank (status: Wednesday morning) anyway in a tricky situation .
Before the Bournemouth vs Tottenham game, our prediction for the away win is also protected by the interesting statistics that Jose Mourinho as Premier League coach has never lost in 24 attempts to an opponent who was in a relegation zone at the start of the game day (18 Victories, six draws).
Will Bournemouth’s first division lights go out this season? Five games before the end, the Cherries, who have been active in the Premier League since 2015, stand with their backs to the wall. The men from the south-west of England only have 27 points in 19th place. The gap to the saving bank is therefore four points.
However, the more than complicated remaining program is more problematic than the gap that can be made up at position 17. There are still matches against Tottenham, Leicester, Manchester City, Southampton and Everton, so the supporters have to get used to the idea of playing against Bristol City or Preston North End again in the coming season.
In order to keep a little bit of hope alive, from the Howe-Elf point of view, it will be important to make the home games victorious. Bournemouth scored 17 of the 27 points at the Vitality Stadium. To speak of home strength would be completely presumptuous given the 18th place in the home table and the two defeats in their own stadium after the restart. Only in the debut season did the red-blacks concede more bankruptcies than in 2019/20.
In general, between Bournemouth and Tottenham it should be taken into account for the forecast that the Cherries will not bring anything on the chain after the forced break. In four games there were four defeats and twelve goals conceded. Both in the 2-5 against Manchester United and in the 4-4 at home against Newcastle, the penultimate was not suitable for the first division.
The tense personnel situation also makes matters worse. With Daniels, Francis and Stacey, three defensive players are injured. There is also a question mark behind Steve Cook. At least Coach Howe, who is associated with several first division clubs for the coming season despite this weak season, can fall back on his probably best offensive player Wilson.
The Tottenham Hotspurs are facing their worst final position since 2008. At that time, Londoners under the leadership of Juande Ramos had to make do with eleventh place. A similar adversity threatens this season. With five games remaining, the Spurs are currently in eighth place. Participation in international business is therefore at great risk.
Coach Jose Mourinho’s team could have made it worse, but the capital city club celebrated an eminently important 1-0 win over Everton at the weekend. Harry Kane and Co. showed the appropriate reaction after the weak appearance at 1: 3 last Thursday in Sheffield.
For the very first time in club history, the Lilywhites lost a Premier League game that day. Seven of a total of twelve Thursday matches were victorious, which the betting providers had certainly considered before the game next Thursday between Bournemouth and Tottenham when distributing the odds. The fact that the quotations for an away win are not even lower can be explained by the weak away yield of last year’s Champions League finalist.
Tottenham won only three of 16 guest appearances in the current season. The defensive only kept the clean slate once. The only 15 points collected abroad are one of the main reasons why the star ensemble from the capital has to worry about participating in the European Cup.
Due to the weak opponent, we are nevertheless confident that the Spurs will leave the away phobia behind, at least temporarily, in front of empty ranks. With the exception of Foyth and Tanganga, all players should be ready for action. So did Harry Kane, who scored as many goals in seven duels with the Cherries.
