Bournemouth vs Huddersfield
English Premier League
Date: Tuesday, 4 December 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Vitality Stadium (Bournemouth).
Huddersfield Town escaped the very foot of the Premier League standings in some fashion as they collected even out of possible nine points from past three rounds. The thread began with a 1-0 home win over Fulham and was continued with a 1-1 draw to West Ham United and a surprising 0-2 victory over Wolves away at Molineux last weekend.
Can the Terriers keep such form going on Tuesday when they travel to Dorset to take on AFC Bournemouth in the 15th tie at Vitality? The visitors will come into it as form favourites given the Cherries lost three on the trot in the league. Eddie Howe’s men thus ruined a promising start to the new season. Interestingly, each of these defeats came with the same 1-2 scoreline. The run can’t be regarded as a massive catastrophe, though, given the opposition included the likes of Manchester United and Arsenal in last two home matches in the league.
Bournemouth vs Huddersfield: Head-to-head
The head to head record speaks in Huddersfield’s favour.
The visitors won 12, drew 9 and lost just 5 of 26 matches against the Cherries.
The Terriers claimed a demolishing 4-1 victory when teams last locked horns in February.
Three or more goals were seen in five of past six head to head outings.
Bournemouth vs Huddersfield: Prediction
The firm defensive line might be the key for the Terriers here. David Wagner’s men conceded just a single goal in last three matches. They generally did well without being prolific in the final third of late which is why we expect the visitors to park the bus and wait for their chances from counter-attacks.
The value is strong with Huddersfield Town to leave Vitality Stadium unbeaten at the odds of 2.25. It is by no means an impossible scenario if we take a look at teams’ form and head to head record.
