Coventry vs Bournemouth Prediction & Betting tips
The mission “Resurgence” is known to be difficult enough for relegated people. It becomes all the more difficult when the league in which that goal is to be achieved is called Championship. The second highest division on the island is one of the strongest second leagues worldwide. It therefore remains to be seen which Premier League relegated team will be promoted again this season.
So far, PL relegated players like Watford (2-1-0) and Bournemouth (2-1-0) have had a promising start to the season, while Norwich City (1-1-1) has been bobbing around in the middle of the table after just three game days. The fourth matchday in the championship kicks off on Friday evening with the match between Coventry and Bournemouth.
As the odds comparison of the betting base can be seen, the Cherries from Bournemouth go as favorites in the Friday game. After the strong start to the season, the Cherries want to remain unbeaten on the fourth day of the championship. With an away win, AFC Bournemouth even moved to the top of the table for the time being.
The team around head coach Jason Tindall does not want to miss this chance. One factor that plays a role in Coventry vs. Bournemouth speaks for a prediction on the guests, is undoubtedly the current form of the Cherries competitive game.
Coventry City is actually facing a difficult season as a newcomer from League One. The Sky Blues didn’t show anything recently, but got off to a strong start to the season. After the season opener against Bristol City (1: 2) was messed up, Coventry last saw a home win over QPR (3: 2) and a goalless draw against Barnsley (0: 0).
At the last Friday appearance of the Sky Blues almost two weeks ago, there was an offensive spectacle against Queens Park Rangers. At St. Andrew’s Stadium in Birmingham, where Coventry City temporarily plays its own home games, a total of five goals were scored. Coach Mark Robins will hardly be able to complain about the three points given the poor defensive performance of his team.
With a similar performance points against the upcoming Friday opponent AFC Bournemouth will not be realizable. It was all the more important for the Sky Blues last weekend to keep the clean slate for the first time in this new championship season. It is quite possible that Robins will also rely on the same three-man chain in central defense on Friday.
If you take a look at the Sky Blues squad, it quickly becomes clear that the squad lacks the necessary width to master the full game plan in the second-highest English division. This problem should become noticeable by the end of the year at the latest. For the time being, Mark Robins will be spared major personnel restrictions.
The Sky Blues coach will only have to do without the two wingers Jodi Jones and Wesley Jobello on Friday evening. Further failures are not known.
AFC Bournemouth, as relegated from the Premier League, is one of the narrow circle of favorites for promotion in the Championship. As the season start of the Cherries shows so far, this assessment is quite understandable. After all, there were seven points in the first three games of the current 2020/21 championship season. On Friday evening, the championship lead can even be conquered for the time being.
Last week, the Cherries prevailed 1-0 in the duel of the relegated Premier League against Norwich City. Just a few days before the match against Norwich, AFC Bournemouth flew out of the EFL Cup, but played with a B-Elf against the overwhelming majority from Manchester. The double burden of the secondary league cup could thus be avoided.
Tindall now wants to build on his team’s recent momentum. Although some top performers were sold in the summer and the Cherries did not invest, hardly anyone will be able to complain about the start of the season at Bournemouth. The Premier League relegated benefited from the well-rehearsed squad from the previous season.
Compared to the league competition, the squad can be seen at the Cherries. AFC Bournemouth has the most valuable squad in the championship behind Watford FC. Accordingly, the role of favorites in the promotion race is hardly surprising. David Brooks, one of the most valuable players in the Cherries squad, will be back on Friday night.
Since coach Jason Tindall recently relied on a 3-5-2 formation, it remains to be seen whether Brooks will be used in the starting XI. It is quite possible that the Welshman will only be used during the game. But even without Brooks, AFC Bournemouth’s offensive has enough quality to crack the defense of Friday’s opponent Coventry.
