Bournemouth vs Coventry City
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 10 April 2021
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Vitality Stadium.
The Cherries are placed seventh in the table at the moment, and they are furiously after a top-six finish. At present, they are trailing by a single point below the sixth-placed Reading, and impressively, they have a match in hand as well.
On top of that, they are also on blistering form, and are scoring goals in huge numbers. In fact, barring Brentford, they have scored the most number of goals of all the teams in the competition.
Especially at home, they have been finding the back of the net at a consistent rate all through this season.
Meanwhile, the Sky Blues are one of the worst in the league, and are placed 20th in a table of 24. They are also letting in goals in huge numbers, and barring three squads, they have conceded the most number of goals in the Championship.
Most importantly, they have been on a worrying stretch on the road all through this campaign, and not only have they been weak in defense in the process, but they have also struggled offensively during the while.
By the looks of things, expect Bournemouth to be the better team on the pitch this weekend.

- Jonathan Woodgate’s men had recorded a 1-3 win on the road, in the reverse fixture. This has also been the sole Championship match-up between the two in the past decade.

Bournemouth vs Coventry Prediction
The Cherries recorded a 0-2 win on the road the last match-day, against Blackburn. In the meantime, the Sky Blues registered a 3-1 win against Bristol City.
Going on, Woodgate’s men were unbeaten in ten of their past fourteen overall games, and they had also won three of their past four fixtures. Note that they had also won 15 of their former 23 appearances.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in 22 of their last 27 overall games, and they are on an eight-fixture winless streak on the road, of which six were losses. Note that they had also remained so in 19 of their past 21 away fixtures.
Finally, they had also lost the reverse match-up in a worrying fashion.
Taking into account these stats, expect Bournemouth to deliver a winning performance this weekend. Expect goals in plenty too mean the while, considering their quest to qualify for the playoffs.
