Bournemouth vs Birmingham
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 6 February 2021
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Vitality Stadium.
The Cherries are a part of the top-most tier of the table, and right from the start of the campaign, they have been in contention to qualify for the playoffs. And there’s ample reason for that too.
The team was relegated from the top flight just at the end of the past season, and it was confirmed on the very last match-day of the campaign.
They have been adamant that they will get back to where they belong all through this season. However, currently they are on a bad patch of performances. They are dropping points in plenty, and are letting in goals in huge numbers.
The team desperately needs a huge win to set things back to its earlier course, and they need to gain their confidence back as well.
And just as if their prayers were heard, they are pitted against the relegation-threatened Blues, who have won just six times this whole season.
Moreover, the Cherries also have a great h2h record against this opponent over the years.
By the looks of things, expect the determined Bournemouth to post the three points on the board.
Bournemouth vs Birmingham: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Jason Tindall’s men are on a six-match winning run.
- They have scored a total of 23 goals from these six fixtures.
- It’s been eight years since they have lost against this foe.
- The latest clash at this stadium had ended in a 4-2 win for the hosts.
Bournemouth vs Birmingham Prediction
Tindall’s men lost 1-2 at home the last match-day, against Sheffield Wednesday. In the meantime, Aitor Karanka’s men were held to a goalless draw by the dead-last placed Wycombe.
Going on, the Blues were winless in ten of their preceding eleven overall games, and they had also lost seven of these fixtures.
They are also on a losing run in h2h encounters since 2013, and have conceded two or more goals in all these match-ups.
On the other hand, their opposite number (despite all their problems recently) were unbeaten at home in 13 of their last 16 appearances. In fact, they had won 10 of these 16 games.
They are also desperate to put an end to their dismal run in the league.
By the looks of things, expect Bournemouth to emerge victorious this Saturday.
