Bournemouth vs Burnley
English Premier League
Date: Saturday, 6 April 2019
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Vitality Stadium (Bournemouth).
Burnley picked up a huge 2-0 victory over seventh-placed Wolverhampton Wanderers last weekend at their Turf Moor. Clarets thus ended a dreadful four-loss streak and escaped on a five-point distance to the red zone.
The job is by no means done as they still have a lot of work to do in order to avoid the drop to the second division football.
Can Sean Dyche’s men build on the win over Wolves and stay undefeated when they visit Vitality Stadium in one of three league games of the day on Saturday?
The hosts are in a much better position being five points above their counterparts in the league ladder. Bournemouth head into this off the back of a win, a draw and a defeat in last three Premier League rounds.
Bournemouth vs Burnley: Head-to-head
The Cherries will be highly motivated to get revenge for a tough 4.0 defeat they suffered against Burnley away at Turf Moor in the first half of the season.
Clarets generally have a much better head to head record with 9 wins, 6 draws and only 5 losses in 20 ties against Bournemouth.
There were three or more goals scored in each of last five head to head matches between the two outfits.
Bournemouth vs Burnley: Prediction
The home court advantage might play a big role here. Eddie Howe’s men took most of their points in their own backyard this term. They won 7, drew 5 and lost just 4 of 16 home outings in the league so far in the season.
The Cherries bagged for goals past Chelsea and they shipped just one to the likes of Wolverhampton Wanderers and Manchester City in recent home fixtures. They should have plenty of space to deliver past league’s second weakest defensive line on Saturday.
We would be very surprised to see the visitors stopping the likes of Joshua King and Callum Wilson here. The home win has to be the way to go and the odds are set at 2.05.
