AFC Bournemouth vs Crystal Palace
England – League Cup
Date: Tuesday, 15 September 2020
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Vitality Stadium.
Despite their problems towards the end of the last season, the Eagles were one of the memorable teams in the PL in 2019-20. They are determined to turn a new leaf this time around, and have set high hopes for this ongoing campaign.
They have opened on the right note with a win to nil over the tough Southampton, and they will try to follow it up with a win in the Carabao Cup.
It helps that they are taking on the Cherries, who were relegated from the top flight in 2019-20. In fact, Jason Tindall’s men have none to blame but themselves for their exclusion from the Premier League – as such were their form.
They had gone on long stretches of losses and winless games, that towards the end even some lucky wins could not extend their stay in the league.
Going on, Roy Hodgson’s men also have a dominating h2h record against this rival in the recent past.
For these reasons, expect a winning performance from Crystal Palace this Tuesday.
Bournemouth vs Crystal Palace: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last time these two met was just two months back, and then the Eagles won 0-2 on the road.
- They are also on a three-fixture winning run against this opponent.
- They have scored two or more goals in five of the former seven clashes.
- Only once have the hosts won at this stadium in the past decade.
Bournemouth vs Crystal Palace: Prediction
Hodgson’s men have begun their new PL campaign on a perfect note with a win to nil over Southampton – who were thought to be the favorites. Now, they will try to extend this run, and further increase their confidence, with a win in the Carabao Cup.
Considering that they are taking on a team from the second division, and that too a recently relegated club, chances are much higher for the Eagles to emerge victorious.
Furthermore, these two had locked horns just two months before, and then Hodgson’s men had won 0-2 at this same venue. In fact, they also do have an impressive record in such games over this past decade.
As such, expect a superb performance by Crystal Palace this Tuesday.
