Bournemouth vs Leicester
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 8 October 2022
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Vitality Stadium.
Leicester had a disastrous opening to their new season, as they went on a seven-game winless run – six of which were losses. However, they did manage to secure a win in their latest match-up, and they will be eager to keep the trend going, against the struggling and recently-promoted Bournemouth.
Bournemouth are placed 13th in a table of 20 so far, and they managed to deliver just two wins in total till now.
Moreover, only two other teams scored fewer goals than them in the entire competition, and their sole two wins in the league came against Nottingham, and Aston Villa. Of these, note that Nottingham are placed bottom-most in the table.
Going on, Bournemouth are a rather new addition to the league, and as such they lack the experience to take on some of the veterans of the top flight. Do note that the Foxes famously lifted the league title in the 2015-16 season.
Going on, while Leicester did go on a long series of poor results, they showed that they were able to rise to the occasion, as they delivered a 4-0 win at their home the last match-day, against Nottingham.
A win was practically a must for them, and they gave just about everything on the pitch to secure the much-needed three points.
Count on them to show that same spirit this time around as well. Moreover, they have a great h2h record against this rival over the years, and taking into account all these observations, anticipate a victory for Leicester this Saturday.
